Adventure Tibet Tour

Tibet, with an average height of 4000 meters above sea level, has within its borders, some of the world’s highest peaks. This includes Mt. Everest {8848m}, the highest peak in the world which rises just between the Tibet-Nepal borders. There are 4 other mountains that exceed 8000 meters & 38 peaks which exceed 7000 meters.

Appropriately known throughout the world as the ‘roof of the world’, the far spread 3482 km international border touches Nepal, India, Bhutan & Myanmar. Tibet was a hidden sanctuary shrouded in mystery to the Western world for a good many years. This continued till the mid 80s when Tibet was finally opened to outsiders & developed into a prime tourism destination that literally fascinated visitors who entered its borders.

Tibet has many topographical wonders to boast of and is also home to three world class nature reserves which are namely, the Qomolangma {Mt. Everest}, Northern Tibet Changtang and Eastern Tibet Yarlung Zangbo {Tsangpo in Tibetan}. Devotees & culture enthusiasts travel from all over the world to get a glimpse of the Jokhang temple built in the 7th century, the Potala winter palace and Norbulingka, the summer palace of the Dalai Lamas of Tibet.

For adventurous travelers, Tibet is a thrilling destination offering both challenges & lasting experiences of a lifetime. Its rough arid terrain, laden with snowcapped landscapes is still perhaps the most hidden, beautiful & untamed land in the world; a place with pulsating ancient traditions, mysterious but friendly peoples & timeless splendor. Travel in Tibet can sometimes, ironically or literally mean ‘adventurous’ where scenes can be thrilling but still remains one of the least developed parts of the universe. Facilities & levels of services down this part of the world are still basic but for those avid travelers willing to accept this, visiting Tibet can be worth every cent you put into your program.

 

‘Trek Nepal Now’ will always go that extra mile to ensure that your journeys to this mystical destination will be as comfortable & enjoyable given the circumstances & also stress that traveling to Tibet requires flexibility & the true spirit of adventure. Please keep this in mind when traveling to this awesome country….however, you will take home memories that will be remembered for many a cold winter fireside story to the generations to come…

Things to remember for all Tourists visiting Tibet:


Arriving Lhasa via mainland China:

If you are planning to arrive in Lhasa via mainland China, you would need to apply for your Chinese visa from the Chinese Embassy in your country.

Once you have the Chinese visa, you will need to scan the visa and email it to us along with the copy of your passport. Both the documents should be clear and readable otherwise it will be rejected by the Tibet Travel Bureau in Tibet (TTB).

Please note that you would not be eligible for the Tibet traveling permit without the Chinese visa.

On the basis of the copies of the Chinese visa and passport, we will apply for your Tibet entry permit from the TTB.

With the combination of the Tibet permit and Chinese visa you would be allowed to enter Tibet from the mainland China.

Once your Tibet permit is issued, you can collect it from anywhere in mainland China where you are supposed to arrive or have it delivered at your hotel you would be staying while in mainland China at an extra charge of USD 30 for courier.

 

Arriving Tibet via Kathmandu or go overland via Zhangmu or Simikot border

On the other hand, if you are planning to fly to Lhasa via Kathmandu or go overland via Zhangmu or Simikot border, you would need to arrive in Kathmandu at least 2 to 6 days (if you want to apply for the minimum visa - normal charge) before your entry into Tibet.

Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu issues visas only on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays from 0900 hrs to 1100 hrs.

Travelers are thus required to arrive in Kathmandu a day prior to the visa issuing days to enable us to get Chinese/Tibet visa for them.

In order to get the Tibet visa, we would need to show your original passport at the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu. As such, our operating officer who would be at the airport to receive and transfer you to your respective hotel would collect the passport from you and get the visa.

 

Have a look at the chart provided below for your reference for the costs on Tibet visa:

Normal (5 days) Top Urgent (same day)
American Passport Holder USD 164 USD 198
Other Nationality USD 80 USD 114


SPECIAL NOTE TO CONSIDER:

Do not apply for the Chinese visa in your country if you are intending to travel to Tibet via Kathmandu (Nepal). If you had applied for the Chinese visa in your country prior to arrival in Kathmandu, it would be automatically cancelled when we get the Tibet visa for you here in Kathmandu.

The Chinese/Tibet visa you get in Kathmandu is a “group visa” and is not entered in travelers’ passports but on a separate sheet of paper - be it one person or a group consisting of two or more persons.

When this is complete, get geared for a stunning trip to this wonderful country that will, in most cases; leave you mesmerized for a long, long time to come. ‘Trek Nepal Now’ & its representatives in Tibet will go all the way to ensure that your trip will be as comfortable as possible throughout the whole tenure of your stay in Tibet.
