Hello, I'm a solo traveler and would like to travel to Tibet for about 8-10 days in late April 2016. Do you have any planned tour group around that time? If so, would you please give quotes as well? I've read your tour plans and all trips look interesting. Thanks a lot.

good day.
We are going to Nepal in March to do the Annapurna Circuit and wish to go to Tibet for about 5 days thereafter: perhaps 3rd-8th April
Our problem is that we do not know how long we will take to do the Annapurna circuit..
Is it possible to book a tour with you at the last minute, flying from Kathmandhu and obtaining a visa in Nepal?
What in any case would a 5 day trip cost, inclusive of fares, per person return to Kathmandhu?<
Thank you
admin(02-05,2016): Dear Caroline Blick,
Permit: If you plan to enter Tibet from Nepal then I highly recommend you not to apply any individual visa from your home country as when you reached Nepal, embassy officers will cancel your individual visa and you will need Tibet Group Visa which we will help you to get once you book tour with us. You will need Tibet Group Visa invitation letter from the Tibet tourism bureau in Lhasa, they need to put the duration on the invitation letter. we will arrange required documents once you confirmed tour with us.Yes, I can customize the private tour for one of you. For private tour, there are only you two, guide and driver in this group, you can decide on when you would like to start and end this tour, on the way of traveling, you can decide where to stop to take pictures or stay for longer or shorter time, if guide says it’s safe and are allowed, it’s more flexible, but as no other travelers will be sharing the cost with you, price for private tour will be more expensive, especially for less members. If you are interested in group tour for the same kind of duration then here below I have also enclosed 2 different group tour itineraries with cost and fixed departure date and you can have a look for more options.You can book the tour at the last moment and just to inform you that the permit will take at least 5-7 days so you have enough time to figure out when your Annapurna circuit complete.Click here for tour itinerary:5 Days lhasa tour
Thanks and please let me know if you have any questions and waiting for your reply

Hello! My girlfriend and I are currently in India. We would like to visit Tibet passing through Katmandu (overland). I read above that Tibet will be closed from Feb-18th until the end of March, is this true? Cause those are exactly the dates we have available. We would like to go from Katmandu to Lhasa, and then go to Chengdu. Another question: the time we spend in Tibet counts in our Chinese visa?
Thanks a lot,
admin(02-05,2016): Dear Vitor,
Please note: if you plan to come to Tibet from Nepal, you don't need to apply for Chinese visa, all you need to do is to send us your passport scan or clear photo and we will apply for the Tibet travel permit here, at the same time we will obtain the Tibet group visa invitation letter here and send it to our Nepalese agent, then our Nepalese agent will meet you at your arrival in Kathmandu and collect your passport to apply for the Group Visa which is compulsory for travelers entering Tibet from Nepal, you will need to pay for the group visa fee and the agent’s service fee to the agent seperately, this fee is not included in our tour cost. for the fee, you can refer to this link:Tibet travel permit infojust for reference. The group visa application takes at least 2 full working days in Kathmandu, therefore please make sure you have enough time for that. (Note: the group visa is only applicable from the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu)Yes it’s true, Tibet permit will be closed from Feb. 18th to whole month of March, according to our experience those years, it will reopen in early April.
So I would suggest you to come in April or after.Yes, your visa is valid in Tibet and also mainland China.
Wish you a good day!
Best Regards

I would like to know if we need a special permit to visit the Changthang Nature Reserve.
With a friend we hope to go to Aru Tso area and further if possible
admin(02-02,2016): Dear Michel,
I really appreaciate for looking for a local tour operator to arrange your trip in Tibet. Since you already visited Tibet several times. I’m sure you know how to apply the permit and it’s regulations.I checked with all your details provided in your mail and many of Tso’s are quite small ones and if you want to include those then I am sure you need to do the Far west Ngari trip and it takes around 24 days including 3 nights in Lhasa.Moreover, the border is closed at the moment and I am not sure whether it will open next year or not. So we also need to check that as well.Please let me know how many days would like to travel so that I can suggest you itinerary accordingly. Also with tour quotation.The cost of trip will be cheaper if there is more people in your group.
Hope it is clear to you if not then please feel free to ask me.
Best Regards

I'd like to travel to Tibet for a visit. I'm planning to depart from LAX to LXA on Feb 18, 2016. for 5-7 days.
Could you please let me know should I apply for China visa or Tibet travel permit or both?
Thank you for your advise.
admin(02-01,2016): Dear Henry Hai Mai,
1st: Tibet will be closed for the tourists from 18th Feb to end of March due to political sensitivity during the month of March in Tibet.
2nd: I would recommend you to tour Tibet during April if your schedule is flexible.
Thanks and please let me know if you have any questions and waiting for your reply
