Sichuan province (Chengdu is the capital) in ancient China is called Shu. It neighbors Shaanxi province in the south. Strategically it is considered as easy to defense but hart to attack for its geographic position.

The way connects Xi'an and Sichuan is hard since ancient times with the Qinling mountains and Ba mountains blocking the way. While since this way plays a significant role in Chinese economic and cultural development, people have been exploring it for a very long time:

In 1958, Baoji-Chengdu railway, the first railway from central Shaanxi to Sichuan was on operation

It connects the northwest and southwest China and for the first time improved the convenience of travelling from central Shaanxi to Sichuan. Till now, it still takes 8 hours from Xi’an to Hanzhong and 16 hours from Xi’an to Chengdu.

On Oct. 1st, 2007, the high speed way was officially on operation

It shortens the time from X’an to Hanzhong to 4 hours and Xi’an to Chengdu 9 hours, which is the fastest way besides flying.

In the October of 2012, the Xi’an-Chengdu high speed rail began the construction

Xi’an-Chengdu high speed rail travels from the north to the south through Guanzhong plain, Qinling mountains, Hanzhong plain and Ba mountains. The construction went through extremely difficult geological condition.

In 2017, the Xi’an-Chengdu high speed rail is expected to be on operation in early October

Xi-Cheng high speed rail, also called Xi-Cheng passenger transport line is the first high speed rail travelling through Qinling mountains. It starts from Xi’an and goes towards south to Hanzhong then enters Sichuan province. The route extends 643km and the train operates with the speed of 250km/h.
