Can you imagine a country where there are no roads? There are no railways and people ride dogs. There are many countries in the world where there are no railways, but there are roads for transportation. There are other ways to get around. But there is nothing like that in this country. The main means of transportation here are such things, you will be surprised to know about them.
We are talking about Greenland. That area of the Arctic where there is ice all around. Greenland is a self-governing country but is largely controlled by Denmark.
Greenland is the 12th largest country in the world in terms of area and 10 times larger than Britain. In its 20 lakh square kilometers there is only rock and ice. The population here is only 58 thousand.
Transportation in Greenland is quite disorganized. There is no railway here. There is also no inland waterway through which you can travel between cities. Currently you can go to Nuuk, the capital of Greenland, only by small planes.
The main means of transport in Greenland is boat in summer and dog sled in winter. A dog sled is a sled which is pulled by dogs. In the last few years, helicopters and planes have started being used more here.
However, China is keeping an eye on this. He wants to make a base here. Not only this, China has sent many icebreakers to create routes for the movement of goods through the Arctic ice. Icebreakers are ships that run on ice, which can be very helpful for the people here. However, the whole world is concerned about the fact that nuclear powered icebreakers are also included in these.
