Regards-Mr lam
admin(10-07,2014): Dear Mr Lam, We are able to help apply for the TGV which is for travelers traveling from Nepal to Tibet, and for the Tibet Travel Permit for you for traveling in Lhasa, but that will all be based on you booking a tour with us, only with your booking information details can we apply for every permits for you.
So can you please let me know when you need to fly from KTM to Lhasa? because the permit application takes around 15 days.
And then can you check on our website for tours you will be interested in? And I will quote accordinlgy. Thank you.
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 from here, at the same time we will obtain the Tibet group visa invitation letter from here and then will send it to our Nepalese agent, so 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. 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)
I hope the above information is clear, if not, please feel free to ask me.(Sherry)

To whom it may concern,
my family and I are travelling to Kathmandu in December and venturing into the idea of travelling to India and Tibet as well. I was wondering how difficult it would be to acquire a visa to Tibet as I have heard that it is quite difficult.
Thank you very much

I would suggest you to come to Tibet by plane instead of by car, because if by car you will reach Zhangmu and everest base camp area, which is around 5,000 high, you won’t have time staying in lower place to acclimatize, it’s easy to get altitude sickness. Please let me know.
Can you tell me how many days are you planning to spend in Tibet, and where yo would like to visit? so that I can help suggest a tour itinerary accordingly. If not sure, you can refer to our website Tibet Private Tours for more details, thank you.
I hope the above information is clear. Please feel free to ask me. : )(Sherry)

I am a single lady traveller from Malaysia. Would like to know how to get my Tibet Permit. I really wish can travel to Tibet before i get my China Visa Done. Thank you.
admin(10-07,2014): Dear Liew Siaw Lin, There is no problem to arrange a tour for you and obtain the Tibet permit. Only thing you need to do is confirm an itinerary with the help of me and then need to decide the tour before 17 days prior to your departure. As permit process takes more than 17 days and you have to send me your clear scan copies of passport and China tourist visa to process your permit here in Lhasa.
So, please let me know which month do you want to travel and how many days do you want to explore Tibet? How many people are in your group so that I can suggest you accordingly.
Hope everything is clear to you if not then please feel free to ask me.(Samdup)

Hello, I am a Malaysian Passport Holder and will be in Kathmandu on 28.Sept.2014. After my EBC trek I would like to travel Overland to Lhasa, let say 23-26 Oct.2014. And to Xining/Chengdu by train. I am alone and would like to join in group which is available.
admin(09-28,2014): Dear Yap Kim Kooi, May I know if you will need to enter Tibet from Nepal by plane or by car? Because our tour is overland from Lhasa to Nepal by car, I guess it’s the opposite direction from yours? Please let me know.
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 from here, at the same time we will obtain the Tibet group visa invitation letter from here and then will send it to our Nepalese agent, so then our Nepalese agent will meet you at your arrival in Kathmandu and collect your passport to apply for the Group Visa which is compulsary for travelers entering Tibet from Nepal.

Hello
I'm an Indian living in China (Nanchang) for work & would be interested in traveling to Tibet along with my wife & infant (3 months old currently). I would like to know the following:
1. Best time to travel with an infant (this year or next year)
2. Photography is my passion, so would like to visit the best places around
3. If possible, I would like to take the train one way as I heard its a beautiful experience
4. What are the formalities for Tibet permit & is there a minimum number of people required?
5. We are vegetarians, so how to manage food
Thanks
admin(09-28,2014): Dear Badri,
If you have a infant then the best way to explore Tibet is to visit cities like Lhasa, Tsedang, Gyangtse and Shigatse. In cities usually there will be no problem for children for altitude. So, if you spend first 3 nights in Lhasa then it won’t be a problem. So, please find the details at Tibet Private Tours
If you visit only cities then you can visit Tibet at any season as different season got different attractions. If you visit Tibet at end of Oct, Nov or Dec then you will experience real experiences of Tibet including wild landscapes, spiritual places, cultural things and over all thousands of peoples (Tibetans) from all corners of Tibet.
If you want to take photos of beautiful landscapes then I highly suggest to visit during summer next year which is also peak season and everywhere will be full of tourists.
Hope everything is clear to you if not then please feel free to ask me.(Samdup)

Hi,
My friends and I are interested in this trip (10 days Ganden-Samye Trekking) but we couldn't find a price per person on the website, do you have any estimated prices for this trip?
Thanks,
Tally
admin(09-28,2014): Dear Tally, If you are interested in 10 days Gaden-Samye trekking then attractions inside Lhasa are also in that itinerary as every customers need sometime in Lhasa for acclimatization. So, I am sure 10 days will be enough for your group but if you want to add anything on the itinerary then that is possible and I can do that for you. Please let me know when and what month do you want to travel so that I can share you other information.(Samdup)
