Thanks for your post
Yes we can apply the Tibet Travel Permits for you. Though 1st I will need to know when do you like to enter Tibet? Are a single traveler? Please answer me.

Here now I would like to give me brief information on Tibet travel permit. Tibet Travel Permits is an essential permits needed for all the foreign travelers and this permit can be obtained with 15 days so we request and we appreciate you to confirm the tour before 15 days of your trip departure or in advance. So that we can work on Tibet permits smoothly. To apply for the Tibet Travel Permits I will need you to send us your clear scan copies of passports and Chinese visa. Once I receive all your documents with your tour deposit then I will process them further to work on Tibet Travel Permits.

As you mentioned that you are a Student are you studying in China? If the answer is yes then you must be holding the Chinese visa "X” category. For that we will need an approval Letter from the university to approve that you are a student from that institution & you would like to travel. That approval letter should be written on an official letter pad of the university & need the official stamp. Also you will need to put down your passport name sex nationality & Passport No. Then we can help for you to apply the Tibet Travel Permits for you.

If you are looking forward a trip then please let me know how many days to do like to travel in Tibet? If you more ideas on which places you are interested to visit that will be very helpful. For the time being please check on our website you check our Tibet tours itineraries which are selected by our local Tibetan travel experts.

Thank you so much and always looking forward to hear from you.

Have a nice day!!!

Best Regards

Thanks for your post and this is Kalsang from Explore Tibet replying your post.
We have received any announcement from Tibet Tourism Bureau that Tibet Travel Permits will be closed all the Foreign Travelers who would like to travel from 1st of Febuary. So I am extremely sorry that we will be not able to help for your trip if you are looking forward to visit Tibet from Febuary 28th to 3rd March.

Though if you are looking forward to visit Tibet & if you can rearrange your traveling dates then I highly suggest for you to travel in Tibet after April 10th. So that the Tibet Tourism Bureau will re-issue the Tibet Permits from the end of March. As in the Febuary there is the Tibetan New Year & also March is closed for all the foreigners since 2008. Here I hope that you can undersand the permits situation.

If you have any questions or need any services then please always feel free to contact me.
You can also check the latest Tibet travel permit updates on our website.

Thank you so much and always looking forward to hear from you.

Have a nice day!!!

My family and I 2 adults and one 9 y/o are interested in visiting Tibet in July 2015. We would like to go from Lhasa to Kathmandu being sure to stop at EBC. I‘m curious about activites that we can do along the route not just viewing the scenery which I assume we‘ll be doing alot of while driving.
Also my wife will be finishing cancer treatment in March/April so she will not be able to trek very much at all. Is it possible to get a custom trip that can accommodate us?

Thanks for your post
based on your family trip interest here now I would like to tell that there we received so many family group with small children I usually suggest a very itinerary and most of them are happy and they enjoy that itinerary. As I suggest that not to stay overnight at Mt. Everest base Camp but to come down to a lower place but during the day time you will driving up to the EBC. So please check the detail itinerary of 8 days Tibet Overland Tour to Nepal border with EBC on our website
