About this route
Chengdu To Lhasa, National Route 318, Frank Tank, 2013
Weather is bad during summer time; headwind, raining, thunderstorm on the mountain top, super cold temperature, high humidity moisture all the time.
Road condition is even worse, unpaved, muddy, dusty, offroad. Cars and bikers are hitted by falling rocks happens all the time. Mud rock flowing and collaps are very often during the raining day. Several people died every year due to the accident, car, rock, and bike brake failure.

However, there are still really lots of bike riders rolling on the road every single day. The scenary is just wonderful and wonderful.
