I am Pema Tshoki from Bhutan. I am very much interested to visit Potala Palace with my parents for 4 days Lhasa highlight tour.   When is best time to visit and how long does it take to process visa?
Please advice me.
Thank You
Pema Tshoki

As you are from Bhutan we advise you to enter Lhasa via KTM It will be more convenient for you taking less time. Also you don’t need to apply for Chinese individual visa.
Generally speaking from April to October are the best time to visit Tibet as in these months we have a warmer and beautiful climate.
You can join our 4 Days Lhasa highlights group tour choose one of them based on your available time the starting and ending dates are fixed you can share the cost and fun with other group members with low price!

Permit application:
Tibet Travel Permit process takes around 18 days and we need 3 days to send you the permit in mainland China . We also need your passport and China visa copy for the permit application. Please send me clear photos or scan copies. If your China Visa is not an "L” visa then you must also provide additional documents such as student certificates work permits residence permits and so on.
If you will take plane from Nanning to Lhasa will need you to offer me your last hotel’s name/address in Shanghai China before flying to Lhasa so that when your permit is issued we will mail it to your hotel that usually takes 3 days with the permit you can board the plane to Lhasa.
Tour Information:
Our 4 Days Lhasa Highlights Private Tours are with private fluent English speaking guide local Tibetan driver you can decide where to stay longer for taking photos and shorter to get to next place definitely do not need to take other members into consideration more flexible and everything is prepared for you only!

We’d also like to suggest you to join our 8 Days EBC Exploration Group Tour too as you are travelling alone but we don’t have the exact 12 days EBC tour this is for private tours.

Hi We are a group of 4-6 ppl from Malaysia and would like to take a tour to Tibet we actually prefer free and easy so what package do you have that can suit us better and what is the price like?
admin03-202017): Dear Rachel
Since after 2007 the Tibet Tourism Bureau announced that all the foreigner should contract with a Lhasa based local agency where every group or individual tourist is compulsory to lead by a licensed guide and driver for whole trip whether a traveller is doing cycling trekking or driving tours in Tibet. So any trip in Tibet is selling in packages or organized tours freelancers or independent travellers are not allowed in whole Tibet. So all our tour is quoted with packages tour include tour guide tourist van Tibet Travel Permit accommodation in Tibet. Please take the above point into serious consideration and then plan your tour since those rules are directly from local government and that is out of our hand.
Yes we can help you with the Tibet permit but now firstly we will need to know the following and then we can help for customizing a better trip. Please let me know the specific date or month of you arriving in Tibet and how many days you would like in Tibet then we can quote to you accordingly.
Best Regards

So you can only book a tour with an agency so that the agency can help you apply for the Tibet Travel Permit according to the tour contract and arrange the Tibet Tour for you.

Hi
I am currently doing an internship in Shanghai and I am willing to go to Tibet in May. I would like to travel alone with a guide if possible and i am currently holding a student X2 visa. Please tell me what is the price for the 12 days trip and what is the procedure to start applying for the Tibet permit.
Thanks in advance!
admin03-072017): Dear Gaetan Laforge
Permit information: Tibet Travel Permit is very essential and must for foreign travellers travelling to Tibet. The application can be started 2 months before the tour starts and permit can be obtained in 18 days. We will take care of your permit application in Lhasa.
Will need you to send us clear scan copies or photos of passports and Chinese tourist L type visa. If student visa need to provide with student ID copy or school invitation letter.
Have a nice day!
Sherry (Your Trip Adviser)
