Hello,
I and a friend will be arriving by train to Lhasa on 23rd October 2016 from China and staying for four nights and departing by train to Xi'an on 27th October 2016.
We have our visa application appointment on Wednesday 21st September 2016; once we have obtained this we will need to obtain a permit for Tibet.
Can you help us obtain a permit and advise what else we need to do, please?
I have read we may need to book a tour guide but can you confirm if this is the case?
We will be staying in Lhasa the whole time and look to visit Yamdrok Lake on one of our days.
thank you,
Nick
admin(09-20,2016): Dear Nick Houlton,
Yes, we can help for obtaining your Tibet Travel Permits. To apply this Permits, I will need your clear scan copies of the passports and Chinese visas. The Permit process will take around 15 days. Also I will the copy of permits through your email and you will have to make 3 copies of them to board on the train and for the check points to enter Tibet by train.
Have you already booked your Train Tickets? Or you need to me help for booking it for you? Let me know.
Regarding the Trip, I would suggest to take our Private Tour 5 Days Lhasa Yamdrok Lake Excursion. Here I drafted the detail Tour itinerary, the tour cost and service inclusions.

Hello,
My wife and I would like to organise a trip to Tibet from Chengdu.
Our idea is a 8 to 10 days tour, covering major highlights (Lhasa, Gyantse, Shigatse, Mount Everest Base camp). I am 35 years old and my wife is 31 years old.  We are regular people of average fit, but would like to do some hiking if possible (no more than 10 k and only on a couple of days - perhaps to Everest Base Camp?).
We wish to have a cultural experience (visit main monasteries, try local food and see local people) and enjoy the scenery (for example Yamdrok Yutso Lake and Namtso Sky Lake).
We have available the period between September 16 and October 8 (when our Chinese visa expires).
Could you please confirm whether you can help us and give us a quote (price per person, including fees for all attractions, English speaking tour guide and mid-range accommodation).
Thank you.

Tibet Travel Permits info: Tibet Travel Permit is very essential and must for foreign travelers traveling to Tibet, it can be obtained within 15 days. So we request and appreciate you to confirm booking a tour at least 15 days before your trip starts, the earlier, the better. Then we have enough time to prepare and to apply for the Tibet Travel Permit for you.
I will need you to send us clear scan copies or photos of passports and Chinese tourist L type visa. If other type of visas, need also either work permit or invitation letter. Once I receive all your documents with your tour deposit then I will process them further to work on Tibet Travel Permit.
In this case, there’s not much time to arrange for your permit application. What’s more from Oct. 1st to the 7th, it’s Chinese National Holiday, those official bureaus won’t be at work. Also hotel reservation during National holiday can be over demanded.
If you need to make this tour happen, you need to confirm the booking and send passports and visas info at least tomorrow. And we will try best to get you arriving in Lhasa on Sep. 30th, 8 Days EBC adventure.
Best Regards

admin(09-16,2016): Dear Melvin,
Based on your Trip information, here I can customised our 10 Days Ganden – Samye Trekking Tour with 9 Days Ganden – Samye Trekking. Before going further, I would like to give you the brief information on the Tibet Travel Permits and your Chinese visa.
Permit info: Tibet Travel Permits is very essential and must for foreign travellers travelling to Tibet, it can be obtained within 15 days. So we request and appreciate you to confirm booking a tour at least 15 days before your trip starts, the earlier, the better. Then we have enough time to prepare and to apply for the Tibet Travel Permit for you.
Will need you to send us clear scan copies or photos of passports and Chinese tourist L type visa. If other type of visas, need also either work permit or invitation letter. Once I receive all your documents with your tour deposit then I will process them further to work on the Tibet Travel Permit.
As you are Singaporean, so there you will no need to apply the Chinese visa if you are travelling China less than 15 days. So, we can receive your Tibet Travel Permits without your Chinese visa.
Regarding the Trip, I would suggest to take our Group Tour 8 days EBC Exploration, as the tour cost is more reasonable. The Main reason is, it is not possible to do the trekking from Ganden Monastery to Samye in the end of October because of its weather. As it will snow on the high passes and the trekking will be blocked. More over, it will be extremely extremely cold and transportation by the Yaks will also not possible during that time of the year. The best season to do trekking is from mid of April to the beginning of October. But end of October is not possible.

If you would like take the 2nd Option to join with our Group Tour, it will be more reasonable. You can also check more information on our Group Tour’s itinerary, the tour cost and service inclusions.8 Days EBC adventure

Hello,
Is there age limit for cultural tourist visiting Tibet? I want to send my family members of cultural visit to Tibet this October. All my family members are citizens of Bhutan. And How easy is it to get Tibet visa for 2 weeks tour?
admin(09-20,2016): Dear Wangda Dorji la,
Tashi Delek (greetings) from Lhasa, Tibet.
I am sorry to inform you that Bhutanese has totally different permit policy and as per government rule none of permits are issuing for Bhutanese. So, only with special connection it is possible to obtain a special permit but for that we can arrange permit and tour if and only there is more than 20 people in a group.

Hello! What trips do you have during the National Day holiday from 1-7 October?
admin(09-16,2016): Dear Matthew,
If you want to do your trip from 1st Oct then it’s best to confirm now as there are two long breaks and none of permits will issue or process during that time.
And I think 6 Days group tour will be suitable for you basis on permit and your travel schedule. If you want to do the below trip then please send me your clear scan copies of passport and China tourist visa right away and then you also need to make deposit for the trip as well.
Best Regards
