My husband and I are planning to fly to Beijing then take the train to Lasha spend 4 days in Tibet then fly to Nepal then to New Delhi.
1- Is it possible to fly from Tibet to Nepal?
2- Can we get a guide in Tibet to take us to the places that we want to go?
3- do travel permits have to be obtained through a travel agency or can we obtained them directly
Thank you so much for any answer that you can provide.

all of the international travelers should be a part of package tour arranged by travel agency and only agency can apply for the permit for you.
Ticket information:
You can either book the train ticket yourself of let us to help with it.

Tour Information:
Of course yes our guide and driver will send you off to the airport to help you catch the flight from Tibet to Nepal. And take you to the places which you want to go.
Here I recommend you to do the 4 days tour only you two with influent English speaking guide and experienced local driver. But can you please let me know your travel date? So that I can quota to you accordingly.
We also have the 4 days group tour itinerary same with private tour you can join as well.

Thanks for your inquiry this is Sherry from Explore Tibet I am very happy to be your personal trip advisor and I hope me and my team can offer you 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.

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 traveler is doing cycling trekking or driving tours in Tibet. So any trip in Tibet is selling in packages or organized tours freelancers or independent travelers are not allowed in whole Tibet.

So you will need to book a tour first. Could you please tell me when you will visit Tibet how many days you want to spend on this tour so I will help make a tour plan and give you the price.
If you are traveling solo I suggest you check on our group tours: https://www.exploretibet.com/tibet-group-tours/

I want to do a self drive to ebc from ktm in an Indian registered vehicle of my own. Tell me how is this possible?
admin10-242017): Dear Sharad Agarwal
As far as I know it’s impossible because foreign travelers have to book a pre-arranged package tour and go with tour agency on tourist car with lisenced guide to travel to Tibet at least going with tour agency cannot drive by themselves. But not sure if can apply for other organization or government. Good luck!
