WildChina > Destinations > Tibet > Tibet Expressway Opens

Travel to Tibet just got more convenient: the government has just finished a 38km highway linking Gonggar airport and Lhasa. At the ribbon-cutting on the 17th, government officials including Xi Jinping officially opened the 4 lane expressway that will allow visitors to Lhasa to cut about 30 minutes of travel time. When Tibet is reopened to visitors next month, WildChina hopes that this will make getting off the beaten path with us just a little easier!
