From Kathmandu, the road is very different from that of the route from Lhasa, and while the route is a lot shorter, it can take just as long, or longer, to make the journey across the border to EBC. In total, the distance from Kathmandu to EBC by road, traveling through the new border crossing at Gyirong Port, is around 504 kilometers (313 miles).
From Kathmandu to the border crossing on the Nepali side, at Rasuwa Gadhi, the route is one that takes around six to eight hours to cover the short 149-kilometers distance. The roads are good from the Nepali capital to around Bidur, along the Pasang Lhamu Highway, but from there the roads get narrower and less well kept, eventually turning to just gravel or dirt roads long before you reach the border. However, on the other side of the border, it is a different matter. From Gyirong Port into the Tibetan interior, the roads are good and are all well paved.
As an important highway connecting Tibet and Nepal, Friendship Highway (G318) plays an instrumental role in two country’s tourism.
