Hi! I'm looking into travelling to Tibet end of July until the beginning of August. Please can you send me more details regarding the permit to travel to Tibet. I already have Chinese visa. If you can please suggest me the best 8 to 10 days itinerary would be great. Thank you.
admin(05-24,2016): Dear Katarina Poljak,
If you are traveling alone then it’s best to join a group tour at end of July or early Aug as there is no problem to arrange the permit for you. So, please find details of our available "8 Days EBC adventure". I am sure you will find fair costs with different departures to meet your travel schedule.Only thing you should note is that you MUST confirm the tour at least before 18 days in advance so that we will have enough time to process your permit and obtain it on time for you.
Best Regards

i am wondering if you could  provide me with some information regarding the prices and dates of the overland tour from Nepal to Tibet. We are two people and would be arriving in Kathmandu on the 27th July, we would like a few days in Nepal and then to start the tour. We would be happy to pay for an express visa in order to be able to start the tour sooner.
Many thanks
admin(05-24,2016): Dear Sally Robinson,
At this moment, the Zhangmu border is still closed after the earthquake hit Nepal in April' 2015, there’s no official notice on when the border will be reopen or not, there’s news that new border at Gyirong will be open next month, but detailed itinerary needs to be investigated, I’d suggest you to fly from Kathmandu to Lhasa and start the tour. How do you think?
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 info 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)
We have 8 days 8 Days EBC adventure with arrival in Lhasa on July 14th, 19th, 22nd, 26th, and August 1st, and 5th.

Hi Im looking to travel from China to Lhasa and stay in Tibet from 10-20 June 2016. Is this too last minute to book?
admin(05-16,2016): Tibet travel permit information: Tibet travel permit process take around 15 days and we need your clear scanned copy of passport and China tourist visa. We only need your passport to work on the permit. If you will take plane to Lhasa, you will need to give me your last hotel’s name/address in mainland China before flying to Lhasa , so that when your permit is issued, we will mail it to your hotel, that usually takes 3 days, with the permit, you can board the plane to Lhasa. Tibet travel permit application has already started this month for travelers coming in June, so if you can settle down the trip early will be better.
Tour information:
According to your schedule, you can join our 8 days EBC group tour departure on June 10nd. The tour will end on June 17th .There will be at most 9 group members in one group, and the starting and ending dates are fixed, price will be cheaper. Besides, you can share the fun and make more friends here. You can check this link for more information: 8 Days EBC Group Tour Itinerary Details and fixed departure dates..

We are about 15 pax wanting to travel to Kailash / Manasarovar so that we are at  Manasarovar on the 18th August ( full moon day ) and the the outer kora of kailash and if possible Nandi Kora also or those who are fit to do it.
Please give me a per person cost and it would be better if we are able to travel in a bus together. Please let us know what type of food will be available on the journey.
thanks a lot........swami
admin(05-16,2016): Dear Swami,
I am extremely sorry to inform you that it is not possible for us to organize Kailash Tour for Indian Travellers, so it is best to check with Nepal based or India based travel Agency, they will help for getting help for your trip in Tibet.

Hello, we are a family of 5 looking to travel in Tibet. We are looking for a 6 days tour around tibets famous sites with a private and personal tour guide, ideally who can speak Chinese. We are Buddhists and hence would like to explore many of the holy Buddhist sites. I quite like many of he sites covered in the 8 days EBC adventure and would like a modified version of that. We would also like a itinerary that can be flexible to spontaneous changes and requests. We would like hotel fees to be covered but we will travel to Fiber by ourselves. May we know the quotation for such a trip?
admin(05-16,2016): Dear Ailicia,
If you want to visit EBC tour within 6 days, then I think the time will be a little tight. The best way to prevent the Altitude Sickness is to spend at least 3 days in Lhasa doing mild activities before heading to higher altitude places. 3 days in Lhasa is not only for attractions but for acclimatization. So if you think you are fit enough for the altitude then you can do the trip like you mentioned your in mail otherwise it’s really better to spend 3 days in Lhasa. Besides, do to the long distance and traffic limitation from Lhasa to Shigatse, we only can drive a at most 50km in Tibet, so this is also why we will operate the EBC tour in 8 days. Now firstly I will need to know the following and then I can help for customizing a better trip. Please let me know the specific date of your arriving in Tibet and also we need to know from where you will enter Tibet and exit Tibet? then I can quote to you accordingly.
I have attached the detail Tour itinerary, please check it: 8 Days EBC adventure.
Best Regards
