Welcome to Beyond the Valley
The roads north to Syabrubesi and Kodari, on the Tibetan border, take travellers to destinations just outside the Kathmandu Valley. Both routes saw severe damage in the 2015 earthquake. At the time of research the road to Syabrubesi and on to Kyrong in Tibet was open, but the border crossing at Kodari was closed. Get the latest road updates before you venture onto these roads. You can only cross into Tibet on an organised tour, but with the state of the roads, more and more travellers are flying in to Lhasa from Kathmandu. This region is also the birthplace of Nepal’s adventure-sports industry.
