Dear Sir/ Madam
I would like to book the 5 day holy Lhasa tour at the end of July 2017 or first week of August 2017.
I will be travelling alone and I would like to review prices for staying at the St. Regis vs the more economical hotel in Lhasa.
Can you please provide detailed information about the different prices?
Also which would be the easiest & most economical way to arrive in Lhasa? I have not made any travel arrangements so I can plan accordingly.
Thank you in advance for your reply.

The most economical way to arrive in Lhasa is actually by taking the train from a city in Mainland China to Lhasa. As there are two ways to enter Tibet. One is from Nepal by taking the Flight to Lhasa & other is to take the flight or Train from Mainland China to Lhasa. But I don’t have any idea from where you will take the international flight to China or Nepal so it will be good to calculate accordingly.
As you are a single traveller it is best idea to take our Group Tour 4 Days Lhasa Highlights and then take one Private day trip to Namtso Lake. That will help for you to reduce the tour cost. As if you take the whole trip as a Private tour then the tour cost will become very high.

Tibet Visa or Tibet Travel Permits are the same document to enter or visit Tibet. To apply this permits once your trip is booked through us then we will need your clear scan copies of your passports and Chinese visas. The process for the permits will take around 15 Days it is best to apply them in much advance so that we can receive the permits sooner. There is no difference with nationality as right now we can receive the one permits for several different nationalities.

Hi
Me and my friend have a plan to book you 8 days tour to EBC on 16 April 2017. We‘re going to make Chinese visa next week and probably will take another one week to get the visa. After reading your notice about the Tibet visa/travel permit closing from 25 Feb to 31 Mar is it possible to get the Tibet Travel Permit and Alien Travel Permit if we apply for it at about 18 February (since the earliest issuance of our Chinese Visa would be at around  16 February 2017)?
Do you have suggestion what else should we prepare in order to get the permits?
Thank you in advance!
admin02-062017): Dear Gisha Prathita
Do not worry about the Tibet Travel Permits being closed from Feb 25th to March 31st. From 15th of March the Tibet Tourism Bureau will start to work on the permits for foreign travellers but all the permits will be issued from April 1st. Also as you are planning to enter Tibet from April 16th there will be no problem to receive your Tibet Travel Permits without any problem. As we have travellers who had booked their trip from April 1st and we will receive the permits from them before 5 - 7 days of their entry in Tibet.
Aliens’ Travel Permit will be issued in Shigatse from the Public Security Bureau we will need your hard copy of the passport and Chinese visa with the permits to apply it. That can be done only when you arrive in Shigatse.
Now as you are looking forward to join with our Group Tour 8 Days EBC Exploration Trip Departure date from April 16th so we will receive the permits before April 10th. I will be sending you the copy of permits through email then if you take the Flight to Lhasa then I will use the fastest courier services to your hotel in Mainland China so I need your Hotel booking information in China.
The Main thing is you will have to book the trip in advance so that we can prepare your documents to apply the permits as soon as the Tibet Tourism bureau accept the permits application then we will apply it accordingly and the process will take around 15 days or sometimes less… Booking in advance is highly appreciate…
From your-side once your trip is booked then I will need you to send me your clear scan copies of passports and the Chinese visa. Then we will do everything for you accordingly without any hardness.

You can share the cost and fun with others.

Hi I was wondering what the weather conditions are like in March? For instance is it safe to cross the Chola pass (before Dege) in the winter weather? And might the passes not get blocked?
Regards
admin02-042017): Dear Kevin
First of all please note that the northern route from Sichuan to Tibet is not open for tourists it was closed since 2008. So you need to change your plan for that and you can visit the Sichuan areas first and then take a flight to Lhasa from Chengdu to do the trips in Tibet.
Secondly March is not open for foreigners to travel Tibet and none ofTibet Travel Permits are issuing by local government and Tibet Tourism Bureau to any foreign tourists. As March is politically a very sensitive in Tibet.
So your option is to enter Tibet in April and do the trip. And if you are interested or if your time is flexible then please let me know so that we can send you the details for the tour with quotation.
