If I am not mistaken this happens pretty often in these areas. Both sides wandering over an unmarked border.

Another thought.... Why would china even want to mess with India. That country is just as overpopulated with little resources.
The Indian army has moved an infantry regiment specialising in mountain warfare to Ladakh’s Daulat Beg Oldi (DBO) sector where the Chinese army has intruded into Indian territory and set up a tent post. The ITBP has also pitched a tent post just across from the one erected by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), after it intruded 10km inside Indian territory on April 15.

I doubt the Indians will let them stay no mater what.
China has asked the Indian Army to destroy certain fortified positions in the so-called disputed territory in eastern Ladakh in return for the PLA removing its temporary camp in Depsang valley
Sources said a flag meeting on Tuesday — the second since the Chinese incursion on April 15 — failed after the Chinese side made its demand. The Indian side was not willing to make a commitment, and that led to an impasse, the sources said. The sources said that Indian fortifications that have come up recently in eastern Ladakh are in an area different from the one where the current faceoff is taking place. No official word was forthcoming on the flag meeting.
Emerging new details of the situation in the Depsang valley show that the standoff was triggered by a series of five transgressions by troops of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) on April 15, including a border crossing by a Chinese military helicopter.
India on Tuesday said the incident reflected differences over the alignment of the LAC. The official spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs, Syed Akbaruddin, said the standoff was a “localised event” in a sector where perceptions of the LAC differ. “We see this as a face to face situation between (the) border forces,” he said
India raised the issue with China last week and summoned Ambassador Wei Wei to South Block.
It has been reported that there have been 600 border violations by China since 2010.

, but isn't Ladakh one of the territories that is full of Maoist rebels in India? My thinking being that if so, then maybe China will use it as an excuse to hang around for as long as possible......
The inputs given by the force are also about various options including using military aggressively in the situation, they said. All the options suggested to the China Study Group are being looked at carefully and other stakeholders in the situation have also given their inputs, they said
