Gyirong Port, new Sino-Nepal Border Finally was Opened, so Lhasa and Kathmandu Overland Tour is all Available Now

According to latest press conference held by people's government of Tibet Autonomous Region, starting from Aug, 30th, 2017, international tourists with valid travel documents (i.e. “Tibet Travel Permit” and “Group Tourist Visa”) can enter Tibet from Nepal or vice versa via Rasuwagadhi and Gyirong Port.

Travel overland from Lhasa to Kathmandu via Gyirong Port and Rasuwagadhi Kathmandu Lhasa Road Map: Kathmandu—Rasuwagadhi (around160km) and Rasuwagadhi—Gyirong County (24km)

The long-awaited official announcement of opening of Gyirong Port finally came as a great surprise. Due to the influence of Nepali earthquake in 2015, the Zhangmu border was completely flattened while the access from Nepal to Tibet via Gyirong was also severely crippled. With over a year and a half of continuous renovation, the facilities of Gyirong Port were finally restored and put to use again.

Now, to global tourists, instead of taking Kathmandu-Lhasa flight to Tibet, you can enjoy the adventurous Kathmandu-Lhasa overland journey, either road trip or cycling tour. And we can help you get the necessary travel documents and customize the Nepal Tibet and China tour as well. Please feel free to send us inquiry for free consultancy. Our helpful travel consultants are ready to offer you the one-stop service whenever you need.

Meanwhile, benefited by “One Belt, One Road” strategy shared by Chinese and Nepali governments, Rasuwagadhi to Gyirong Port truly became an international gateway connecting China with South Asian countries. And it was expected to play a vital role in promoting trade, tourism and cultural exchange between China and Nepal in the near future.
