NYALAM, Tibet, May 6 (Xinhua) -- Traffic on an international highway in southwest China's Tibet autonomous region resumed Sunday six days after rain-triggered landslides and strong winds brought cars to a halt, local authorities said.

Hundreds of Chinese and foreign tourists in about 100 vehicles left the region after traffic resumed on the No. 318 National Highway running from the regional capital of Lhasa to Kathmandu, capital of Nepal, at 5 p.m. Sunday, traffic officer Zhang Min said.

Traffic has been restricted to one direction only, Zhang said.

The continuous rain has triggered landslides since May 1.
