I wish to make a Mt Kailesh trip starting from Katmandu, flying to Lhasa, joining a group tour to Mt Kailesh returning to Katmandu (ie not having to go back to Lhasa)  by 4x wheel drive through the mountains
Please explain my best way forward re all the permits one seems to have to obtain. Do I obtain any China visa from my home country NZ or obtain nothing and sort it all out in Katmandu. I can obtain the air flight Katmandu to Lhasa, then I need your help re the group tours, accommodation, camping meals etc I am a budget traveller  so I am not into paying mega money like an American thanks
admin(04-06,2014): Dear James, If you coming from Nepal: You don’t need to obtian the China visa form your country because if you enter form Nepal you need group visa, so please send us your passport copy and we will apply for the permit with the copy of the passports, then you should obtain the Tibet Group Visa (same as Chinese Visa) from the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu, but you can’t apply for the Group Visa by yourself and you should apply it through a local Nepalese agency, so we will use our contact Nepalese agency for you, therefore please give us your hotel detail in Kathmandu and we will provide you our contact agency information that you can contact when you checked in the hotel. Then they will meet you at the hotel and collect your passports for the visa application. Make sure you have at least 2 full working days in Kathmandu for the visa process and cost of the visa and Nepalese agency service fees are not included in our tour cost, for more detail of the Group Visa and cost please check on our website on this link Tibet visa & permits

Is It possible to travel to Tibet holding a student visa issued in chengdu?
admin(04-06,2014): The Sichuan to Tibet Southern route tour is closed from 2008. While you are more interested to visit, so we have so many different itineraries for your choice.
While you are a student, it is positively possible to apply for Tibet Travel Permit, though on the top of Student Visa we need an Approval Letter from your university saying that you are the student from this college with your passport name and number on it.
Please let me know, when will you visit Tibet and how many people is there in your group?
If you have any questions or any services need from us then please feel free to contact with me. (Kalsang)

We would like to take the train from Xining May 5th to Lhasa, spend 3 nights in a medium range accomodation in Lhasa and participate in two full-day and maybe one half-day tour while in Lhasa. We have to leave Lhasa by plane to Zhangjiajie on May 9th in the evening or May 10th in the morning. Maybe you could arrange a flight for us? We have a Chinese visa, but we do need a Tibet travel permit and train tickets.
Thank you!
