I am interested in your 4 day Lhasa Highlight tour departing on September 19 or 27, 2014. Can you please let me know approximately how much flights will cost roundtrip from Kathmandu to Lhasa?
admin(04-23,2014): Dear Melissa, One way flgiht ticket from Kathmandu to Lhasa cost is between CNY3,000 to CNY4,000 per ticket (we can give you the exact cost when we book your flight ticket). Available on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
IF you start your Tibet tour from Kathmandu Lhasa, firstly you have to obtian Tibet group visa form Chines Embassy in Nepal.

Note: If you obtain (TGV) group visa from Chinese Embassy In Nepal they will cancel your individule visa which you obtian from your contry. So I would suggest you, start your tour from Kathmandu to Kunming and Kunming to Lhasa by flight because the flight fees are cheaper than Kathmandu to Lhasa and your individule visa will not be cancel. We can obtain your Tibet travel permit with your clear scan copy passport, China tourist visa.

The flight cost are below, please check it.
Connection flight from Kathmandu to Kunming, Kunming to Lhasa flight tickets cost CNY3,000 included flight taxes. Available on every day and this cost is on Sep 18th and 19th . flight fees are changeable.
For round trip it’s cost CNY6,000.
Our group tour you are interest to join is available on Sep 19th and 27th. Our group tour is suitable and resonable for the solo travel the group size is less than 8 members and services are same as private tour because we don’t have any hidden cost. The tour cost is CNY3,200 per person plus CNY500 for single room supplement – if you require one room or there are no member who share the room with you. I am happy to tell you that if you book the group tour before in 3 months we offer 5% disount from the tour cost, so your tour cost will be CNY3,040 pluys CNY500 for the single room supplement. Please let me know if you ar interest in it there for I will send you the tour itinerary and servises in detail.
Hope the above information is helpful for you, if not, please feel free to write to me.(Dolma)

I was wondering if you do tours from Kathmandu overland to Mt Kailash then ending in Lhasa? I will be in Kathmandu at the late July/early August.
If not could you suggest any variations of this itinerary ?
Kind Regards
admin(04-23,2014): Dear Olive, We have group tour for Kailash on 20th Aug but note that all our group tours are only guaranteed if there is at least three people in the group. So right now there is no one inquiring for the group tour and if anyone shows up the I will inform you in first hand.
In case if you want guarantee departure for only two of you then we can also do that but there will be cost difference as well. For details please check at
14-16 Days Kailash Group Tour.
Hope the information is clear to you if not then please feel free to ask me.(Samdup)
