Though there is no railway
link, Tibet has already opened two airports, one in Lhasa, the
regional capital, the other in Chengdu, linking it with Chengdu,
Beijing, Xi'an, Chongqing, and Kathmandu. Travel by air can
provide you an opportunity to appreciate the unique scenery
of the sea clouds and the rolling snow-covered mountain peaks
from a height of 10,000 meters.

There are five highways leading to Tibet. The Qinghai-Tibet Highway and the China-Nepal Highway which connects
Nepal with Tibet at Zhangmu Port of Entry are the busiest two
road links, The other three are the Xinjiang-Tibet Highway,
Sichuan-Tibet Highway, and Yunnan-Tibet Highway. The
Sichuan-Tibet and Yunnan-Tibet links are not accessible to
overseas tourists yet, but for Chinese travelers all the roads
lead to Tibet. Transport condition on parts of the southern
section of the Sichuan-Tibet Highway is still difficult, however,
it is along this section that you can find numerous tourist
attractions including the scenic Raog Lake, the ancient and
unique Karo Ruins and Chambaling Monastery, as well as a
folklore culture different from that of the areas around Lhasa.
Travel within the region is quite convenient, since the autonomous region has built a sound highway network reaching Lhasa in every direction.
