This article explored the historical origin, illustrated the transformative process, and analyzed the character of commercial exchange between Yunnan, Burma and India across Himalayan through exploration of various categories of historical literature and oral resources. The authors assert that the ancient commercial exchange was based on the localized multi-ethnic networks which has been broadened and re-hinged as the international business circle that crossed the whole Himalayan area. Here, the localized and intra-ethnic economic exchanges became the foundation of the international trade construction and diffusion in that area, which promoted the traditional intra-ethnic communication and dynamics in eastern Himalayan region. Therefore, from the historical perspective, we argue that the relationship between Yunnan and Tibet of China located in eastern foot of Himalayas, India and Burma is interweaved and overlapped by localized intra-ethnic commercial exchanges and supplements and long-distance international trade which shows different intersection spectacles within different ages.
