    1. How can I get Tibet visa from Nepal?

    To enter Tibet from Nepal, all travelers must obtain a China Group Tourist Visa through the Embassy of the People's Republic of China in Kathmandu. Additionally, foreign travelers must obtain a Tibet Travel Permit to visit Tibet. These permits are mandatory for all foreign travelers and must be obtained before entering Tibet.

  • icon
    2. Is Nepal Tibet border open?

    Yes. The Gyirong Border between Nepal and Tibet is currently open for travelers in 2023, and it's possible to enter Tibet from Nepal without a Chinese visa. Instead, travelers will be issued a Chinese Group Visa from the Chinese Embassy in Nepal. To obtain this visa, it's necessary to book your travels through a certified tour operator in Tibet. 

  • icon
    3. What is Tibet Travel Permit
    The Tibet Permit is issued by the Tibet Tourism Bureau (TTB) and is required for all foreign travelers, regardless of whether they are traveling independently or with a group. The permit is intended to regulate and guide tourism in the region, and it's issued only to travelers who book a tour with a registered travel agency authorized by the Tibet Tourism Bureau.

    4. How to get to Tibet from Chengdu?
    There are two main ways to get to Tibet from Chengdu: by air or by train.
    By air: Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport has many direct flights to Lhasa Gonggar Airport, the main airport in Tibet. The flight takes about 2 hours and is the fastest way to get to Tibet from Chengdu.
    By train: Another option is to take the train from Chengdu to Lhasa. The Qinghai-Tibet Railway is the highest railway in the world and offers stunning views of the Tibetan plateau. It takes about 37 hours to travel from Chengdu to Lhasa by train, but it's a scenic and memorable journey.

    5. How to get to Tibet from Beijing?

    By Air: The most common way to get to Tibet from Beijing is by air. There are direct flights from Beijing to Lhasa, the capital city of Tibet. The flight takes around 4-5 hours.

    By Train: Another option is to take the Qinghai-Tibet Railway, the highest railway in the world. The train journey from Beijing to Lhasa takes around 40 hours and offers stunning views of the Tibetan plateau. However, it's important to note that the high altitude can cause altitude sickness, so it's recommended to acclimatize to the altitude by taking the train.

    Beijing to Xining by Air and then Train to Tibet:
    We highly recommend traveling from Beijing to Xining by flight first and then taking the Xining to Lhasa train via the famous Qinghai Tibet railway. As Xining is the starting point of the Qinghai Tibet railway, this approach allows you to enjoy the best part of the Tibet train journey in a much shorter time, which takes only 24 hours, with a comparison of a 40-hour journey from Beijing to Lhasa. Additionally, you'll have more train options to choose from in Xining, as there is only one train between Beijing and Lhasa.

    6. When is the best time to travel to Tibet?

    The best time to travel to Tibet is from April to early June and September to November. In fact, Tibet is worth a visit all year round, because the sceneries vary in different season. If you like winter view, winter is also good travel time with clearest snow-capped mountains and the most colorful rivers. However, the roads in Tibet might be frozen in winter. Please ask us for the exact weather if you plan to travel in winter.

    7. How to apply for the Tibet Travel Permits?

    In order to apply for a Tibet Travel Permit, you need to apply for a Chinese visa in the Chinese embassy or consulates in your country first. If you book a tour with us, we will send an invitation letter to you to help you apply for a Chinese visa.

    Once you get a Chinese visa, please send the photocopies of the visa and your passport to us, and we will apply for the Tibet Travel Permit for you. Please note that international tourists must book a tour with a local travel agency in Tibet if they want to travel to Tibet.

    After the permit is issued, we will send it to your hotel or the places you stay in China. You need to show the permit while boarding on a train or flight to Tibet. The government do not allow travel agencies to send the permit overseas.

    8. When is the best time to visit Lhasa?

    The best time to visit Lhasa is during the spring and autumn months, from April to May and from September to November. During these months, the weather in Lhasa is mild and pleasant, with clear blue skies and comfortable temperatures. Summer, from June to August, can be rainy, and the region can get crowded with tourists. However, it's a great time to witness traditional Tibetan festivals, like Shoton Festival and explore the stunning natural beauty of this mysterious land.

    9. Should I worry about altitude sickness when travelling in Tibet?

    The average elevation of the region is over 4,000 meters and altitude sickness is a common concern for travelers visiting Tibet. Not everybody will suffer from altitude sickness when traveling in Tibet and most visitors will be in good condition when they arrive.

    The symptoms of altitude sickness can include headache, nausea, dizziness, and shortness of breath. It is important to allow time to acclimate to the high altitude and to take precautions to prevent altitude sickness. Travelers should drink plenty of water, avoid alcohol and caffeine, and eat light meals that are high in carbohydrates. It is also recommended to take it easy for the first few days, avoiding strenuous activities and allowing time to adjust to the new altitude when arrive in Lhasa. Some travelers may also benefit from taking medication to prevent or treat altitude sickness.

    If symptoms of altitude sickness persist or worsen, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. Many hotels and travel agencies in Tibet have oxygen supplies on hand to help alleviate the symptoms of altitude sickness. It is important to consult with a doctor before traveling to Tibet, especially if you have a history of heart or lung problems, high blood pressure, or other medical conditions that may be affected by high altitude.

    10. Do I need to be in good physical condition to take a Tibet Everest Base Camp tour?

    It's recommended that travelers be in good physical condition before taking a Tibet Everest Base Camp tour, as many tours involve trekking and hikingg at high altitudes. The Everest Base Camp, located on the Tibet side, has an average elevation of 5,200 meters above sea level. Travelers with heart or lung problems, high blood pressure, or other medical conditions that may be affected by high altitude should consult with their doctors before traveling to Tibet.
