Road conditions in Tibet have been greatly improved especially the roads between big cities, owning to the rapid development of Tibet’s economy and the influx of visitors pouring into Tibet.
Roads to remote Everest Base Camp was bumping dirt roads, but it is now fully pave and smooth to drive.
Sharp turns are normal on Tibet roads where they climb the sides of steep valleys. The roads from Lhasa to Shigatse, Lhasa to Lake Namtso, and Lhasa to Nyingch are all full of hairpin turns, with some stretches snaking along high valleys.
Car speeds are generally limited to 40 km/ hour for safety.
Snow: Roads to some lakes or mountains outside Lhasa may be closed after late October because of snow.
