J,

Did you say in another thread that you found it difficult to cross overland from Kathmandu into Tibet?

Thanks

Don't think so. I remember saying that the flights usually will stop during the Winter because of the bad weather. I would think it would also be hard to cross by land during the peak of Winter, but I'm not positive.

Is it possible to cross from Kathmandu-Lhasa all year round?

When I was in Kathmandu, in Jan. 1998 I didn't even consider going by land because I would have had to go r/t (and that's a little too much for me). I wanted to go by plane but no flights were going during the Winter.

In beginning of March, 2001 I got the first resumed flight of the year from Lhasa to Kathmandu (but I had a contingency plan to drive (let me re-phrase that..."to be driven") out of Tibet into Nepal in order to continue my trip). So it is possible to drive even when there are no flights but I wonder if its possible to go via land in the peak of Winter?
