China's PLA has recently undertaken helicopter patrols over Pangong Tso, part of which lies in the Tibet region, amid reports of redeployment of troops and fresh military build-up along the disputed border with India.
PLA helicopters Z-10, Mi-171, and Z-20 conducted patrols from Ngari Heliport over Pangong Tso. The patrols were part of the series of combat-oriented exercises, such as low-air defense penetration, undertaken by PLA Xinjiang Military Command's army aviation troops. The area where the helicopter drill took place is approximately 86km east of Finger 4 mountainous spur on the north bank of Pangong Tso.
It's worth mentioning the PLA's aggression on Finger 4 on May 5, 2020, had sparked off the military tensions along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and the subsequent border standoff.
The two countries have just concluded nine rounds of military-level talks but there has been no breakthrough yet.

A military standoff between China and India along their disputed mountain border has protracted for months.
