Chumar is a border patrol facility located in southwest in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, India.[1][2][3][4] Chumar has been one of the most active areas on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in terms of interactions between Chinese and Indian troops.[5] Located 190 km southeast of zhada, it had long been an area of discomfort for the Chinese troops as, until 2014, Chumar had been one of the relatively few places along the Sino-Indian border where the Chinese had no roads near the LAC.[6][7][8][9][10]
