Tibet Group Tour FAQs - Plan Your Tibet Group Travel Worry-free
1. Do I need to get a Tibet permit to visit Tibet? How long does it take to obtain?
All foreign travelers are required to obtain a Tibet Travel Permit to visit Tibet. The permit can only be applied for through a registered travel agency in Tibet (we are local based Tibet travel agency with office setting in Lhasa) and is required to purchase flight or train tickets to Tibet. The permit is necessary to enter Tibet and visit certain areas within the region, including Lhasa and Mount Everest Base Camp. Travelers should plan ahead and allow sufficient time for the permit application process, as it can take one to two weeks to obtain the necessary permits.
All foreign travelers are advised to make their bookings at least one week in advance and send the necessary documents to us for obtaining the permits. However, if you plan to visit Mount Kailash, it is recommended to book at least two weeks in advance, as it may take longer to obtain the necessary permits.

However, if the solo traveler agrees to share the room with another traveler in the group, the single supplement can be waived. If you are a solo traveler, please let us know your preferences and we will do our best to accommodate you.
6. Do I need to be in good physical condition to take a Tibet tour?
Yes, it is recommended that travelers be in good physical condition to take a Tibet tour, as many tours involve hiking and trekking at high altitudes. The average elevation of Tibet is over 4,000 meters (13,000 feet), and some of the popular tourist destinations, such as Mount Everest and Mount Kailash, are even higher. 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.
7. 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.
8. At what age are children suitable for Tibet tour?
There is no specific age requirement for children to take a Tibet tour, but it is important to consider the high altitude and the physical demands of some of the activities involved. Children who are too young or not physically fit may not be able to participate in some of the more strenuous activities, such as trekking or hiking at high altitudes.
It is recommended that children be at least 4 years old to take a Tibet tour, as younger children may have difficulty adjusting to the high altitude.

In major cities like Lhasa, there are a variety of accommodation options available, ranging from 3 star to 4 star hotels.
