admin04-222015): Dear Bombrun We can help book your flight/train tickets through our ticket group but you will need to confirm the requests at least 2 months before the departure date because train ticket start to sell 60 days in advance or it will be sold out very fast on the first booking day.
One way economic class flight from Chengdu to Lhasa costs CNY1680 per person.
Soft sleeper train ticket from Lhasa to Chengdu costs CNY1400 per person including service charge. Train is only available on even days. Arriving on the third day in Chengdu.
It’s hard to find a french guide in Tibet if there is they charge really high service fee there are mostly English and Mandarin Speaking Tibetan guide. Is English guide ok?

I am flying into Nepal on May 27 and I am planning to go to Tibet with my friend around June 13th. I have an American passport and he has an Australian one and we both have valid chinese visas. Is it possible to book with a tour before arrival in nepal? I am very much interested in Tibet but I am not sure how difficult it is to fly out to Tibet with a tour group from Nepal. Thank you!
Bernard Wang
admin04-222015): Dear Bernard As you are holding the Chinese visa and also you would like to enter Tibet from Nepal in fact there is a regulation that all the foreign travelers who are entering Tibet from Nepal side will receive another Chinese visa which is called Tibet Group Visa and it is same value as the Chinese tourist visa. To receive that Tibet Group Visa you will have to cancel that Chinese visa and then they will re-issue the Tibet Group visa from China Consulate based in Nepal. For that reason we usually suggest our clients not to apply the Chinese visa from your home based China Consulate.
But in your case as you already obtained the Chinese visa the best method to enter Tibet is take the Flight from kathmandu to Chengdu or Kunming & on next day you can enter Tibet by the flight.
As you are also interested join with a Group tour in Tibet here I would like to suggest for you to join with our Group Tour 8 Days Overland to Nepal via EBC departure date from June 14th. To have more information please check on our website 8 Days overland to Nepal

I hope the above information is clear and if you have any questions or need any services then please always feel free to contact me.
Thank you so much and always looking forward to hear from you.(Kalsang)

Hi team
I was wondering if I am able to enter Tibet around the 16-20th of July? If so what would my partner and I require to obtain a Tibet Visa as an Australian citizen?
Thank you!
admin04-222015): Dear Alex Yes you will need to obtain the Tibet travel permit for your Tibet trip the process takes at least 15 days. You need to first book a tour with a tour agency then the agency can help you apply for the permit. Will need you to send clear photos or scans of your passports and valid Chinese tourist visas for the permit application.
We have group tour 8 days EBC exploration operating in July small groups with maximum 8 travelers in one group and the tour cost is cheaper than private tours you can check the details including itineraries and price per person as well as the tour itineraries in this link: Tibet Group tours
if you are interested in let me know please.(Sheryy)

Hi there
I‘m a solo Canadian traveler based in Hong Kong. I was hoping to plan a trekking holiday in Tibet sometime between June 13th and June 28th. I prefer trekking over the overland jeep tours. I was wondering if you have a small group trek already scheduled for this time that I may join to lower costs? If not how much would the Ganden - Samye trek be for a solo traveler?
Many thanks
admin04-222015): Dear Steve I am very sorry to say that we do not organize the Group Tour for the Trekking from Ganden – Samye if you would like to do the Ganden – Samye Trekking by yourself then here I drafted the tour detail itinerary and tour cost with services includes so please check them carefully; Also I didn’t include the cook as you are a single traveler there I can send our guidewho can cook for you and the only thing is to help him a little bit sometimes during your trekking.

I would like to go to Lhasa Tibet in June 2015. I would like to take your 7 day  tour from the Lhasa to Kathmandu. Does this tour operate in the summer? I see that you drive to Nepal. Will we get to go on any short hikes? Is this trip dangerous in June monsoon weather? How soon would I havw to book this tour? How long does it take to get the visas and the paperwork?
admin04-222015): Dear Glen It takes at least 15 days for the permit application need you to send me clear scans or photos of your passport and valid Chinese tourist visa.
As you are traveling alone I would like to suggest you to join our group tour 8 days overland to Nepal border the itinerary is almost the same but you get to share the high tour cost with other travelers one group has only maximum 8 travelers.

You will need to book a tour with us better one month before departure date or at least 20 days before.
There is around 1 hour hike at EBC or you can also take a minibus.(Sherry)
