Kyirong border crossing to enter into the natural abode of Tibet-
Zhangmu was the main border crossing until the earthquake. This region came into the direct influence of the earthquake and this is no more an entry point to the Tibet. Now travelers have to go through kyirong, a new border crossing which is still the Shigatse Prefecture like the last one. Actually, it is not the very new border crossing. People have been using it since 1960’s, but now it is in the official use to enter into Tibet. Going from kyirong to Lhasa is easy and a wonderful road trip since road is paved and in the good condition to travel by the four wheelers. But, same is hard to say about the road from Kathmandu to the kyirong. Some reports say that it is not bad either and paved up to the major part of it.
