Transportation in Tibet
In the last few years Tibet’s transport infrastructure have improved a lot and much of discomfort to get into the high plateau has solved. Transportation in Tibet, there are 5 main legs, which are friendship highway to Nepal (west), Xinjiang-Tibet highway (North west), Qinghai-Tibet highway (North), Sichuan-Tibet highway (East) and Yunnan-Tibet highway (South east). In 2010, major part of the Xinjiang-Tibet highway construction was finished and now all the 5 main routes has paved and good road condition, but during the rainy season some part of Sichuan-Tibet highway and Yunnan-Tibet highway will be damaged by landslide and flood.
According to our customers interest we operate tours including the remote regions where there are worse road condition, so selection of vehicle is a challenging with local situation, but all the Tibetan travel companies use vehicle resources from few local tourist transportation companies apart from few agency own vehicles.
