admin08-282015): Dear MIHALAS Stelian

Thanks for your inquiry this is Mia from Explore Tibet I am very happy to be your personal trip ad visor I am confident that I can answer all the questions you may have based on my own experience and help you plan a memorable tour in Tibet.

Explore Tibet is one of the few Tibetan owned agencies based in Lhasa we practice Responsible travel by using local services and employ locals as much as possible. We use Tibetan drivers and tour guides for their strong Tibetan Cultural and religious background to make your travel unique and authentic.I am sorry to inform you that it’s impossible now for us to obtain the permit for your arrival on the August 22th. Because the permit application takes around 15 days your time is not enough.

Perhaps due to the 50th Tibet anniversary the Tibet travel will be closed for foreigners during early September. It’s not confirmed yet no official announcement we would suggest you to book the tour for arriving after middle of Sep. Is that possible? Just in case

If you have any idea please feel free to contact me. Looking forward your reply.
Best Regards
Mia (Trip Advisor)

admin08-162015): Dear Jon You have mentioned that you would like to take the Train from Lhasa to Shanghai to Lhasa on September 25th. But all the train tickets from Shanghai to Lhasa on September 25th are sold out. I would suggest for you to book the Train Tickets from Lhasa to Shanghai.
As from October 1st to 15th is the China National Holiday so there will be thousands of domestic travelers will be coming into Tibet so if you want to book the train tickets then I would Highly suggest for you to book the trip as soon as possible so that we can book the train tickets accordingly. Else you can see the No. of Train seats. So it is very limited if we late.
Regarding your Trip fully based on your trip information there I re-customize an itinerary please check them below and there is a slightly changes are there as I added the visiting of Namtso Lake which is the highest salty lake in the world and it is also extremely beautiful and worth worthy to visit as you will also visit the Tibetan nomadic life.(Kalsang)

I would like to take the train from Lhasa to Xi Ning on September 18.
admin08-162015): Dear Ian If you want to do 4 days group tour in Lhasa then we have several fixed departures and as per current permit policy it’s better if you travel after 15th Sep due to 50th Anniversary of Tibet meeting holding in Sep. We received notice from Tibet Tourism Bureau and local government that all groups need to depart before 31st Aug and enter after 15th Sep. Please plan your trip accordingly.
Hope everything is clear to you if not then please don’t hesitate to ask me.(Samdup)
