4WD from Chengdu to Lhasa

by khiemera

Hi all,

I'm intending to do a 4-wheel-drive trip starting from Chengdu into Lhasa. Would anyone know how long this would take, and can recommend any local tour agents or guides who would be able to do this kind of trip? Language is not a problem, as I understand Mandarin. Thanks!

Not sure are you a Westerner or an Asian...coz you'll need to make sure you have proper papers to get into Lhasa on road via KangDing.
We usu do it through local pals who own a 4WD... I know of someone who hope on a delivery truck to 'sneak' into Lhasa on the road.
You can also consider taking the bus to KangDing and then travel further to
DaoCheng and negoitate a transport from KangDing or DaoCheng. May be cheaper.

Here is a video of some westerns taking a local bus to Tibet. This was about 2 years ago and things may be different now.

The most scenic route is the southern route to Lhasa from Chengdu to Dhartsedo (Kanding) to Lithang to Bathang to Markham to Pomda to Pomi and onto Lhasa. Check our this website which may give you an idea:



Travel Tips for Lhasa

Walking on Barkhor, around...

by Pladen

Walking on Barkhor, around Jokhang area, togheter tibetan people, see them, smile them, touch them and let they touch you.
Give a sweet to the children or a ball pen.
If you do this without efforts probably, in your previous life, you was one of them.

The Barkhor Street is found...

by ErnieGal

The Barkhor Street is found in the heart of Lhasa circling the Jokhang Temple. It means 'a pilgrim's inner circuit', and is the earliest street of old Lhasa city. It dates back to the foundation of the Jokhang and is an essential pilgrim route. Houses and small inns were built all around the street. As time went on, shops and businesses also set up in the Barkhor, and it slowly became a prosperous area. In the past 30 years many more services and facilities have opened, shops have increased and the street is scattered with stalls. It bustles with activity and is always jam-packed with trades people. It is a 'must' for souvenir-hunting tourists. Many people call the Barkhor 'the window of Tibet' as it is a typical reflection of Tibetan life. It is a magical place, full of the mystery and wonder that is associated with Tibet.

Carpet making

by grets

At Tibet Potala Carpet Company, not far from Drepung Monastery, we were shown the whole process of carpet making, from the basic wool, through the carding and spinning to the weaving of the carpets. At the end was the obligatory souvenir shop, where you could buy carpets and rugs in every size, colour and pattern, as well as a few other souvenirs.

Packing List

by illa

Better be water proof if you go there in August because it's the raining season. Should get some warm jackets because it's very cold in the morning and evening even in summer time. You can buy everything there don't forget a torch. It's very important.

Pay a visit to Tibetan...

by illa

Pay a visit to Tibetan Hospital, just oppisite to Jokham Temple, or see doctor there. It's totally different medical style from others, even from the Chinese one... you can always find something to see a doctor, such as a running nose, sleeplessness last night, a little bit of headche (mind you, it can be a true serious problem while in Lhasa).
After being checked by the doctor, you will be given some 'mud' round pills. No matter what disease it is, no matter how serious or unserious you are, you are always given by such mud as treatment. It's just amazing.
