It is often said that the most beautiful scenery is always on the road
So there are many roads that must be walked once in this life
Such as the beautiful Sichuan-Tibet line G318, G317
Another example is the amorous Yunnan-Tibet line and the beautiful Qinghai-Tibet line.
The vast Xinzang line, the steep inspection line…
Many people hope to encounter the most beautiful scenery on these roads
And this road from the “Sunshine City” Lhasa
The magical heavenly road to Nyingchi, the “Snowy Little Jiangnan”
Kill the U.S. Route 66 in seconds and subvert your perception of the Sichuan-Tibet line
Fascinating, breathtakingly beautiful!
Above a large river, it is as beautiful as a work of art
Two-way four-lane expressway, costing 38 billion
It is the only “expressway” in China without tolls
The most dazzling green corridor in Tibet
The most beautiful landscape avenue in history
Upgraded version of National Highway 318
The Most Beautiful Highway in History
Lalin Expressway starts from Liuwu New Area in Lhasa
Passing through Gongbu Jiangda County
Finally, Zhenba Village in Nyingchi Bayi District
The total length is 409.2 kilometers
Driving on the Larin Highway
Snow mountains, forests, villages, farmland, etc. along the way
An intoxicating and beautiful picture composed of
All the way to beat Switzerland in appearance
Go south along the beautiful Niyang River
Passing snow mountains, forests, rivers, wetlands
To Tibetan villages, farmlands, grasslands…
The blue of the river is clear and boundless, and the white sandy island
The reddish branches echo each other, as beautiful as a dream
All the plateau beauty you can imagine
I can meet you on this road
Especially the section from Gongbu Jiangda County to Bayi Town
It’s so beautiful that it’s unreal, looking down from the sky
Like a celestial road in the sky
How high can the appearance of the road be?
Walk through the “Lalin Expressway”, you will know
fast and furious road
Some people say, do not take the “Lalin Expressway”
I don’t know the “Fast and Furious” in Tibet
This high-value highway is a two-way 4-lane road with a design speed of 80 kilometers per hour. Among them, the Lhasa section and Nyingchi section were completed and opened to traffic in September 2015. After the opening of the whole line, Lhasa to Nyingchi will be shortened from the previous 8 hours to less than 5 hours. In one day, you can go all the way from Lhasa to Nyingchi!
The Lalin Expressway, built on a plateau with an average altitude of 3,000 meters, passes through the Mira Pass at an altitude of more than 5,000 meters. It is a heavenly road on the plateau.
The Lalin Expressway is generally developed along the 318 National Highway or the Niyang River route, and some road sections are “running side by side” with 318, so it is called “an upgraded version of National Highway 318”. Compared with 318, this road is not only upgraded in speed, but also in beautiful scenery and self-driving experience!
There are a total of 220 bridges and 20 tunnels along the whole line, so the difficulty of construction can be imagined. And this road, not only has a large altitude difference, but also has a lot of bends along the way. Driving in it is like riding a “roller coaster”, and you have to speed up your heartbeat from time to time; and the scenery along this road is full of surprises. !
It connects two beautiful areas in Tibet, with unlimited scenery along the way: Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Norbulingka, Mila Pass, Basong Co, Niyang River, Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon, Nanyigou and Lulang Forest Sea… They are all waiting for you to visit one by one.
The scenery along the way is like a flowing scroll
Surprises all the way
It is said that the most beautiful time of this road is in autumn
(In fact, the editor thinks that every season has different beauty)
Let me let you see the most beautiful time first
||Niyang River – Autumn Colors Parallel to National Highway 318 and Linla Expressway
When you come to Nyingchi in spring, you must see the peach blossoms in Peach Blossom Village, and when you come to Nyingchi in autumn, you must see the autumn scenery of Niyang River. The 318 Sichuan-Tibet Highway and the Lalin Expressway are almost parallel to the entire Niyang River Basin. It is difficult to choose between the two landscape avenues. Once Lin Zhi’s autumn mode is turned on, the prosperous autumn will come. At dawn and dusk, the water surface is shining with gold. The autumn colors on both sides of the Strait are magnificent and colorful, and the forests are dyed…
||Basong Co-From the shore of the lake to the mountains, all over the forest
Autumn is the best season for Basong Co. From the shore of the lake to the mountains, the mountains and plains are full of layers of forests, which is a good time for photographers to “hunt for color”. The most beautiful time for Basong Co is in the morning and evening, camping by the lake to watch the sunrise and sunset. When the golden afterglow shines on the lake, a sense of joy arises spontaneously. If you like hiking, you can hire the villagers of Jieba Village by the lake to take you to Xincuo in the hinterland of the scenic spot. This rarely visited lake will definitely give you a pleasant surprise.
||Jieba Village-Basong Cuoli Natural and Simple Small Village
After arriving at the “Tashi Island” in Basong Co, continue to walk in, and you will reach the more beautiful “Jieba Village”. When you arrive at this natural and simple village, you can see the kind smiles on the faces of Gongbu people everywhere. There is a lot of water vapor in Jieba Village, and every morning, it will condense into clouds, blocking the space between the sky and the earth, making it impossible for people to spy on the whereabouts of the sun. But this misty Basongcuo has a unique beauty, and the ancient village in autumn has the feeling that the beauty is still holding a pipa half-hidden.
|| Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon – Jinyang mangroves sparse yellow
If it is said that the most beautiful autumn in China is in Nyingchi, then this section of Milin will be the essence of the autumn self-driving route. Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon is the deepest canyon on earth, located between Milin County and Medog County. Every late autumn, there are graffiti-like groves everywhere, and the antique houses and colorful woods complement each other. Once you walk into the entrance of the Grand Canyon, you suddenly fall into a dreamy natural picture.
||Namjagbarwa-October is the best viewing period
Starting from September, Namjagbarwa ushers in the best viewing period. This “spear piercing the blue sky” is perfectly presented under the clear blue sky. In the afterglow of the setting sun, the clouds and mist in the mountains are dyed red, just like a red fire is ignited. Pieces of Populus euphratica forests sway with golden waves all over the mountains and plains, and the low bushes are embellished with passionate red plants. If you start from Pai Town to Nalacuo on foot, you can also appreciate the true face of Namjagbarwa from multiple angles along the way.
||Nanyigou – the dazzling picture scroll under the blue sky of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau
“Fairyland of Symphony, Qingyou Milin”, Nanyigou, not far from Provincial Highway 306, is also a good place to go in autumn. Driving on Provincial Highway 306 or Gangpai Highway, you will be pleasantly surprised by the golden forest trails along the way. Walking into Nanyigou, golden pine forests, green canyons, glaciers and snow-capped mountains, under the clear blue sky of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, every place is a dazzling picture, the beauty is simply thrilling.

Let’s meet the most beautiful scenery on the road to heaven and earth together…
