Additional Info
  • Confirmation will be received within 48 hours of booking, subject to availability
  • Not wheelchair accessible
  • Visa for Nepal to Tibet
  • If coming from Nepal to Tibet, you do NOT need China visa, but need to spend 3 working days in Kathmandu to get Tibet Group Visa(TGV), the weekend and holidays do not count as working days, for example---You have to apply TGV in morning of 1st working day, and get TGV at noon time of the 3rd working day, then you fly to Lhasa next day after the TGV is obtained, so please firstly confirm your dates with us before booking any flight, otherwise it might be problem. Contact us for more about TGV.
  • We actually do not suggest to come from Nepal to Tibet, because the government issued a policy that only the group of 5+ persons can apply TGV, so if you are small group of 1-4 persons, we will have to find other ex-customer's passport to make it totally 5 for application, and as mentioned above that visitors have to spend 3 working days in Kathmandu to get TGV, so it is a bit complicated, if possible, we suggest you come from China to Tibet and get China visa beforehand in your country, which is a lot easier.
  • Please note that if you already have China visa but still coming from Kathmandu to Lhasa, by this way you still need to get TGV for the tour and your China visa will be automatically cancelled by Chinese embassy in Kathmandu and will not be able to use again, the TGV will cover your trip to Tibet and China for single entry usage.
  • We also need to know which destination you fly to after Tibet trip, because the destination name will be listed in permit and not changeable
  • Please note that if your group is 2 or more persons, please make sure all of you will be flying out of Tibet together on same flight and to same destination, we could not separate the TGV for different destinations, it has to be group action.
  • We need you Kathmandu hotel name, address, phone number, so that our Nepal worker can get to your hotel to apply TGV for you.
  • The TGV fee is not included, you need to pay our Nepal operator in cash + 2 passport size photos for TGV application.
  • Since Whatsapp is blocked here, so please install Wechat in your phone, we can make a group chat to include you, us and our Nepal operator, so that our 3 parties can get in touch with each for online discussion to sort things out, our Wechat ID is: 18577338850
  • Visa for China to Tibet
  • You need to send us passport + china visa copies at least 20+ days beforehand for Tibet permit application. If booking late we can not have enough time to get the permit.
  • If you do not have visa yet, you can send passport copy first and visa later. But if you are holding Singapore passport, you will enjoy 15 days visa free.
  • If your visa is working or study visa, we need a document from your company/school to prove your identity, contact us for the sample.
  • Please note that D type passport holder is NOT allowed to visit Tibet, please check your passport type and make sure of this.
  • You need to apply China visa in your country WITHOUT mentioning Tibet, othewise your application might be rejected by embassy. If you need us to provide you the invitation letter, please do let us know, for making this invitation letter, we need to know your China arrival city + arrival date, China departure city + departure date.
  • We need to know from which Chinese city you take flight to Lhasa, and what city you fly to after Tibet, these city names will be written on Tibet permit and NOT changeable, you can only enter or get out of Tibet from the fixed cities.
  • If you take flight to Lhasa, you need to stay one night in China so that we can post the original permit to your hotel there, you can get it from hotel front desk when checking in, so we need your China hotel info for delivery. And if you do not want to stay one night in China, please make sure that your Home-China-Lhasa flights have at least 3+hrs in between, you need to get out of the airport security check to meet our driver and get the permit, then check in the security check again for next flight, if in any case the 1st flight is delayed, you will not be able to catch the next flight to Lhasa, so this is actually risky and do not recommended. Also additional USD70 fee will be charge for arranging a driver to hand you permit at the China airport.
  • If you take train to Lhasa, you will NOT need original permit, you only need to print the permit TWICE for the train boarding is fine, we will email you the permit copies 5-15 days beforehand.
  • If you want more info, please kindly download Wechat and add us at 18577338850, then we will give you more info online.
  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 12 travelers
