Raining season arrives in Tibet

04-07-2013 | From: China Tibet Online

With the arrival of raining season in most areas of Tibet, tourists should be aware of the geological disasters caused by the continuous rainfall, such as debris flow and landslide, according to the Tibet Meteorological Administration.

The recent rainfall, with the widest scope and greatest intensity so far, is predicted to last for several months in most places of Tibet. Both the maximum precipitation in Chamdo and Nyingchi exceeds the extreme value of the same period of the previous years, said He Xiaohong, senior engineer of Tibet Meteorological Administration.

Continuous torrential rains probably cause the geological disasters. It is said that there have been a few landslides and debris flows caused by heavy rain on the Tibet section of Sichuan-Tibet Highway, leading to the temporary transport disruptions.

Known for its danger, the "14-kilometer Shortcut" of Pome section of Sichuan-Tibet Highway is in hazard-prone area for the frequent debris flows and landslides there; meanwhile, since the road is under construction now, some emergencies are likely to occur, such as long hours' traffic jam.

Since the peak tourist season begins, the number of travelers soars, who usually arrive in Tibet by bicycle, by car or on foot along the Sichuan-Tibet Highway. They are advised to pay close attention to the weather information and get ready for possible emergencies and disasters, He Xiaohong said.
