We have China visa already.  We want to take the train from Xining to Lhasa Lhasa to Kathmandu tour. And then tour Nepal.
Please can you book the train tickets for us to make sure that we are in Lhasa in time to join your tour Lhasa beginning of October or end of September please.
How much are the train tickets for 2 adults for soft sleeper?
We are flying to China from the UK  where should we land in China to make it easier to reach Xining?

Thank you.
Kind regards

Dear all
My friend and I are interested in joining 8D EBC tour starting on 26th Jul.
Planning to flying to Chengdu from London. Do you recommend to take any particular flight from chengdu to Lhasa? Or could you arrange the return flights Lhasa - chengdu for us? Any discount?
Also what would be the temperature around that time ? We would like to ensure to have the right range of clothes we have.
Usually rain a lot in that time?
Thank you!

Thanks for your inquiry

Flight tickets:
We also can help you book the air ticket as in peak season the air tickets near the full cost we can help you book the flight tickets but we will charge the full cost of the air ticket no discount because the tickets cost will change everyday. And you can choose morning noon or afternoon flights as you wish. I hope you can understand. And you can book it by yourself will be cheaper on this website: Expedia. com(on this website you can book the tickets without Tibet travel permit)
The one way economy air tickets from Chengdu to Lhasa is USD271 per ticket.
The one way economy air tickets from Lhasa to Chengdu is USD271 per ticket.

In July it was a little cool in the mornings and you would need a fleece jacket or light sweater. But the afternoons were warm. It rained every day but usually in the evening or at night. As you go to higher elevations it is colder. Then you will need a jacket and a hat. I would think that August would be warmer than July.

I am interested on the overland tour from Sichuan to Tibet Lhasa.
We are US passport holders.
What routes will be using? Is it 317 or 318? Are American citizens allowed to travel by car along 317 or 318 highways?
Thank you.

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 tell you that right now foreign travelers are not allowed to go overland from mainland China to Tibet.
But you will have to go either by plane or by train.
We can apply for your Tibet travel permit for you to travel in Tibet by car or trekking.

If you and share your plan like when you come and how many days also how many people will come with you then we can quote for you accordingly. Looking forward to hear from you.
