Purpose for this live-fire drill, according to PLA (Chinese People's Liberation Army) is to simulate a mass removal of the enemy’s fortified positions. The military exercise is claimed to serve defense purposes.

The event takes place in the context of escalating tension between India and China around Himalayan border areas. It involves up to 7,000 soldiers from PLA on the altitude of 4,700m.
