China has made state-of-the-art arrangements to protect its soldiers posted on the heights from the cold. Shiftwar duty of 200-200 PLA soldiers is being done every 15 days so that they do not have to face constant cold. Here, 200-200 PLA soldiers are being shifted on Finger-4 to avoid winter when the temperature goes down to minus 10 degrees.
The standoff with China in eastern Ladakh began with the Finger Area on the northern bank of Pangong Lake. Since then, thousands of soldiers from both sides have been face to face at about 18 thousand feet height of Finger-4. Not only this, PLA has made temporary modular flatoff-grid carbines. Solar heating systems with temperature tolerances from 15 ℃ to -55 ℃ have been installed in it.

Not only this, China has deployed HQ-9 and HQ-16 missiles with 400 combat vehicles in Depsang.
