What is Doklam Dispute:
Doklam is an area disputed between China and Bhutan located near their tri-junction with India. India does not claim Doklam but supports Bhutan's claim.

Doklam Crisis
On 16 June 2017 Chinese troops with construction vehicles and road-building equipment began extending an existing road southward on the Doklam plateau.
On 18 June 2017, around 270 Indian troops, with weapons and two bulldozers, entered Doklam to stop the Chinese troops from constructing the road. And this standoff continued till 28 August 2017 i.e. for 2 months, 1 week and 5 days.

Current Status
Chinese Road construction halted.
Both sides pull their troops back from the face-off in Doklam.
