What is permit entry fee per person if enter from Lasha?
admin02-212017): Dear Ram Patel
Permit information: It is impossible for you to apply for the Tibet Travel Permit without booking a tour together from a travel agency so the permit entry fee will be included in the tour package. And Tibet travel permit process takes around 18 days and we need 3 days to send you the permit in mainland China so we need your clear scanned copy of passport and China tourist visa. Yes we will take care of the permit for you.
If you find Tibet Tours you are interested in please let me know so that we can arrange for you accordingly.

Dear  Sir

Thanking you

As you know that the Tibet Nepal Border was closed since after the earthquake in Nepal in 2014 the government had closed the border and also stated that it will not open for another 5 years. Due to that reason there will be no possible to do the land drive from Nepal to Tibet. But if there is good news then we will inform you immediately.

Hello I‘m interested in traveling into Tibet from Nepal. Is there no way at all to travel by ground and have a private tour? Please let me know.
admin02-202017): Dear Sky Gelbron
Sorry there is no way to do the travel by land from Nepal to Tibet because the Tibet Nepal Border was closed since after the big earthquake in Nepal in 2014 due to that reason the government had closed since after the incident and stated that the border will remain closed for 3 – 5 years because of the safety purpose and underconstruction of the border town and the road. The only option to enter Tibet from Nepal is to take the Flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa.
If you are a single traveller then we would suggest to join with one of our Tibet Group tours because the cost for single traveller will become extremely high.

I live in Australia and was wondering what the process is to travel to Tibet. How do I obtain a Visa or Permit to enter Tibet? Are there any other things I should be looking into like Travel Insurance?
If you could also advise on good airlines for travel and accommodation that would be great.
