admin(09-15,2014): Dear Shiv
As you are interested to enter Tibet from Kashgar - Xinjiang – Lhasa - Zangmu from September 26th to September 30th. First of all, I need to tell you that to get the Tibet travel Permits, we will need at least 15 days but if you are able to book the tour by tomorrow (September 15th) then we will get the permits for you. Also as you have only 4 days, so i would suggest you to take the flight from Kashgar to Lhasa, but there is no direct flight. All the flight has to go to Chengdu and then next day to Lhasa. The Flight tickets cost around 4000 per person.

But if you can do that tour, then I suggest for you this trip itinerary of 4 Days, so please check the below itinerary and if you have any questions then please always feel free to contact me.

4 Days Kashgar – Lhasa – Zangmu Tour;
Sept 26th (Day1. Take the flight from Kashgar to Lhasa;
Sept 27th Day2. Arrival in Lhasa;
Stept 28th Day3. Lhasa - Shigatse;
Stept 29th Day4. Shigatse – Zangmu;
Stept 30th Day5. Zangmu – Kathmandu;
This is the best tour itinerary that I can suggest for your trip. So if you are interested then please let me know.

Me and my girlfriend would like to visit Tibet. We're in Beijing already and would like to take the train in, let's say, 2,5 weeks.
Can we still get a permit with you? Do we have to get into a group?
We really want to take the train there...
What are the options?
Thanks for the help!
Julien and Sally
admin(09-15,2014): Dear Julian and Sally
There is no problem to arrange a tour for you and your girlfriend, only thing you have to keep in mind is that you have to confirm a tour at least before 18 days in advance or prior to your trip departure. If you can do that then you trip can be arranged in Oct for sure. We have a group tour on 9th Oct that leaves to Nepal border via EBC so please let me know if you are interested on this tour or not? For details of tour you can check at 8 days Tibet Overland Tour to Nepal border via EBC
If you want to take the train then best or most convenient city is from Xining, so please plan your trip accordingly. But if you want to take the train from Beijing then please let me know when and what date you will enter Lhasa so that I can suggest you accordingly.

Hope everything is clear to you if not then please feel free to write me.
Best Regards

Thanks for your inquiry, this is Sonam Jamphel – general manager of Explore Tibet, I think you are not clear with answers from our sales Dolma in her previous email
Officially there is no any cost for the permit but currently there are lots of restrictions for the permit and it is almost impossible to get the permit through normal process, therefore you need to pay additional to get the permit, so that is why the permit fee is different from different operator as there is no a exact number.
About the Chinese visa fee, you can only check it from the Chinese Embassy in your area.

I am currently in India, travelling for a year. I plan to head north to Dharamshala and from there travel through Nepal and Tibet. I would like to join a group which either starts in Kathmandhu or Lhasa and travel to the other destination. I would like to visit monasteries, the palace and general sightseeing. Of course witness the beauty of the himalayas!
I would like to tour for approximately 14 days total. Starting early October 2014. (10th?)
Thank you!
admin(09-15,2014): Dear Heather Allardyce
I think you are really so lucky that some days before two of our clients confirmed the group tour for 9th Oct and that is guarantee departure. If you want to join them then you are most welcome and please note that the tour starts from Lhasa and ends at Nepal border.
If you can then the best way is to enter Tibet or Lhasa from other cities in mainland China with a China tourist individual visa (L type) and then ends the trip at Nepal border.
Anyway please check all the details at below,
8 Days Overland to Nepal Tour
The cost of below group tour is CNY6,800 per person, if you stay in separate room or no one shares the room then single supplement is CNY1,400 compulsory.
For more detail of the tour please check on our website at this link 8 days Tibet Overland Tour to Nepal border via EBC
Best Regard
