Advanture Trip : World Highest Region Tibet China

Have you been Tibet China before? One peaceful region of China which still be natural and pure culture.

Tibet is situated on the Tibetan Plateau, the world's highest region. The world's highest mountain, Everest, is on Nepal's border with Tibet and most of the Himalaya mountain range lies within Tibet.

The atmosphere is intensely dry nine months of the year. Western passes receive small amounts of fresh snow each year but remain traversable year round.

Low temperatures are prevalent throughout these western regions, whose bleak desolation is unrelieved by any vegetation beyond the size of low bushes, and where the wind sweeps unchecked across vast expanses of arid plain.

The Indian monsoon exerts some influence on eastern Tibet but essentially none on western Tibet. Northern Tibet is subject to intense heat in summer and intense cold in winter.

Advanture trip : drive to Tibet on 4 Wheel Vehicles

For those real adventure people, drive a 4-wheel vehicle to Tibet is a better choice! It needs better physical conditions, more time, more money, and a lot of courage and determination.

You can drive to Tibet via 5 routes:

- Sichuan (Chengdu) to Lhasa : 2159 kilometers to 2407 km
- Yunnan (Kunming) to Lhasa: 2317 kilometers
- Qinghai (Xining) to Lhasa: 1947 kilometers
- Xinjiang (Yecheng) to Lhasa: 2743 kilometers
- Kathmandu to Lhasa

Among the above routes, driving from Qinghai or Kathmandu ("friendship highway") are easier. We do not suggest you drive to Tibet from the other ways except you are "professional" adventurers with all the necessary gears and backup.
