  上世纪初,西方第一个闯入西藏的瑞典探险家斯文·赫定,进藏时有130匹马,抵达日喀则时仅剩下两匹公马和一头母马。他在《亚洲大陆旅行记》中写道:在西藏“我们每迈出一步是对地球的一次新发现,每一个地名意味着占领了一块新的土地。直到19071月为止,我们对地球的这个部分和对月球背面一样一无所知。”

At the beginning of last century, Swedish explorer, Sven Hedin, the first western people to enter Tibet possessed 130 horses, which ended up into 2 male horses and one female horse when he finally reached Shigatse. He wrote in “The Tour in the Asian Mainland”, in Tibet, “Every step we take is a new discovery of the world, each name of spot means conquering a new land. We know nothing about this part of Earth as we did the back of Moon until January, 1907.”

  本世纪西藏的交通运输发生了巨大的变化。在斯文·赫定进入西藏后的本世纪上半叶,这里甚至连半英里公路和一辆卡车都没有,运输主要靠肩背和牲畜驮运。从拉萨到雅安的牦牛运输一年仅有一次。1950年农奴制废除后,在极为艰难的条件下,先后修筑了川藏、青藏、新藏、滇藏4条省际公路干线。与此同时,在自治区境内,形成了以拉萨、日喀则、昌都和那曲为中心的公路网,98%的县都通了公路。在此期间,还建成了青藏铁路。1956年,航空人员突破号称“空中禁区”的青藏高原上空,试航成功。现在拉萨与国内的北京、成都、重庆,以及尼泊尔的加德满都,都有定期航班往返。

During this century, transportation in Tibet has experienced huge changes. In the 1st part of 20th century, when Sven Hedin entered Tibet, Tibet even didn’t have half a mile of road or a truck, and the main methods of transportation is burdening by shoulder or using livestock trailers. Yak conveyance from Lhasa to Ya’an is a yearly matter. After the abolition of slavery in 1950, Sichuan-Tibet, Qinghai-Tibet, Sinkiang-Tibet and Yunnan-Tibet highways, four interprovincial arterial roads, were successively built under extremely severe conditions. At the same time, in the autonomous region, highway network is formed around central cities such as Lhasa, Shigatse, Chamdo and Nakchu and 98% of the counties can be accessed by highway. In the period, Qinghai-Tibet railway has been accomplished. In 1956, aviation personnel made a breakthrough that they fly to the midair of Qinghai-Tibet plateau, which is also named “forbidden area in the sky” and succeeded. Now there are regular flights between Lhasa and Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing and Kathmandu of Nepal.

  如今游客可以以多种方式进入西藏,他们可以乘汽车从新疆、青海、四川或云南到西藏,也可以乘飞机从北京、成都或重庆到拉萨。

 Today’s visitors can enter Tibet in many ways. They can start from Sinkiang, Qinghai, Sichuan or Yunnan by car, and they can fly to Lhasa from Beijing, Chengdu and Chongqing.

  现代游客渴望重返大自然,欣赏大自然。西藏地域广阔、人口稀少,高山白雪皑皑、森林郁郁葱葱、杜鹃满山遍野,河流奔腾不息,湖泊静谧安详。这里绝大多数地方没有污染,散发着淡淡的原始醇香。在这里人们可以尽情地享受大自然的恩赐。

 Modern visitors are eager to return to and enjoy nature. Tibet is blessed with a vast area and few people, we can enjoy mountains with white snow, forests with abundant trees, booming azalea, never-ending rivers and tranquil lakes. Most places in Tibet are free from pollution, with the flavor of original world. In Tibet, we can enjoy the bounty given by nature with heart and soul.
