What is self-driving?

Follow the car by car, as the name suggests, you can drive with Che Chuan into the Qing on the 17th.

Then you definitely want to ask – who is following the car?
Of course, it is a pilot car that matches our westbound state. Our pilot car is a large team of veterans from the Tibetan area. Each driver has more than 5 years of experience in running the Sichuan-Tibet line and is very familiar with the road conditions along the way. It can cope with various emergencies on the road, such as: common small problems in the car, attention to the roads along the way, and speed limit along the route.

There are professional staff to escort you into Sichuan, and what else can you worry about?

I have never been to the plateau area, is it suitable for participation?
Yes, the schedule of this self-driving tour into Tibet is to consider the altitude sickness. The Sichuan-Tibet migration into the Qinghai, the elevation rises little by little, so that the riders gradually adapt to the plateau environment.

It is recommended to take Rhodiola oral solution one week before departure, and we will also give each rider a bottle of oxygen. As long as there is no major cardiopulmonary disease, it is fully capable of the entire journey.

What kind of car is suitable for self-driving tour? Can I participate without a car?
Generally speaking, it is most suitable to participate in our self-driving tour SUV. Of course, the car is also ok, and the displacement should not be too small.

You can also participate in self-driving activities without a car. Take our pilot car. The westbound self-driving tour will send two or three gold drivers to drive the self-driving team. There are 4 positions on each car. You can also participate without a car!

What is the difference between the itinerary and other self-driving tours?
In terms of the itinerary, we chose the Sichuan-Tibet line to enter Tibet, and the Qinghai-Tibet line to be hidden. We have arranged excursions for every attraction worth visiting. Every beautiful scenery worth taking is accompanied by the stop.

In addition, the rest of the trip was arranged twice, without having to drive every day to let the players relax. This line is also different from the regular tour group. It is a self-guided tour. We have penetrated into many hidden places that are not popular, so that everyone can gain more.

What is the road condition along the way?
The trip took 6,000 kilometers and lasted for 17 days. The highest altitude was 5,213 meters. Starting from Chengdu, the road to Kangding, Daocheng Yading, and the G318 of the southern Sichuan-Tibet line enter the holy land of Lhasa. Returning to Qinghai along the Qinghai-Tibet line via Golmud and Xining.

Most of the road conditions along the way are good. There are some points to note: 1 Mangkang section, due to the serious destruction of the mountain flood roadbed last year, it has been repaired until now, the road is narrow and the pit is not good, and the road is not good; 2 Zuogongjuebashan road is rugged 3 The overall situation of the Qinghai-Tibet line is good, but there are many dark pits. The volcanic crater of the Weihe River is often traffic jams, and the traffic accident rate of the Qinghai-Tibet line is the first of all the gold-storage routes. The reason is that “ten accidents in nine accidents are nine times faster.”

How to eat and drink along the way?
A: The western tourism environment is relatively backward and the conditions are limited. On this aspect, we have formulated the itinerary according to the three concepts of “eat well, live well, play well!”. In this trip, due to conditions, there is no Five-star hotel, we have arranged a four-star or the best local hotel!

About eating: Since everyone comes from all over the country, eating habits are different, some friends like to eat spicy, some friends have a light taste, so there is no dinner included in the self-driving activities, but all hotels contain nutritious breakfast.

Will I arrange shopping?
We are self-guided and do not arrange shopping throughout the trip, but there are many valuable specialties in Tibet, which are very attractive to tourists from afar. When the teammates ask for it, our team leader will make a purchase guide to avoid buying inferior goods. For some inferior goods and fakes, even the leader is difficult to distinguish.
