What Our Customers Say

  • Outstanding service from Tibet Vista!

    I had an excellent experience with Tibet Vista (did the 4D/3N tour), starting with my initial contact with Liam/Jiang. The Chinese Embassy in Kenya has exceptionally stringent requirements that are not common with other embassies, necessitating multiple revisions of the Letter of Invitation. Throughout this process, Liam remained patient and accommodating...More reviews

China Tibet Group Tours FAQs and Travel Tips

  • When is the best time to travel to China and Tibet?

    Generally, the best seasons to visit China and Tibet are Spring and Autumn, although both can be visited throughout the year.

    Tibet experiences significant variations in weather from winter to summer due to its high altitude. Therefore, it is preferable to visit Tibet during spring and autumn, particularly from April to June and September to October, when the weather is warm and stable. During these times, activities like trekking, cycling, and overland driving can be enjoyed more comfortably.

    Summer in southern cities of mainland China can be quite hot, whereas Tibet remains relatively mild. While the summer scenery can be stunning, be prepared for large crowds.

    Winter is an ideal season for budget travel to China and Tibet, although some attractions may close due to harsh weather conditions on the plateau. It's advisable to double-check before planning your trip during this time.

  • Is it recommended to get to Tibet by train or flight?

    In general, the Tibet train is more popular among tourists for its scenic landscapes along the Qinghai-Tibet Railway. However, flying can be time-saving, flexible, and convenient.

    If you're starting your journey from cities like Beijing, Shanghai, or Guangzhou, which are far from the plateau, it's recommended to take a flight. The train journey can be quite time-consuming, lasting up to 40 to 50 hours. In contrast, flights depart daily and take only several hours.

    Another option is to combine both flight and train travel. You can first fly to Xining and then board the train to Lhasa from there. Xining has the most frequent trains departing for Tibet, and the train takes the shortest route possible. This option can reduce your overall travel time while still allowing you to experience the scenic Tibet train journey.

  • How many days are needed to travel around China and Tibet?

    At least one week should be allotted for a relatively comprehensive tour of both China and Tibet. For instance, if you plan to tour both Beijing and Lhasa, you'll need at least three days to explore Beijing and gain an overall impression of this historical capital city. Then, when you travel from Beijing to Tibet, you'll require one to two days for the flight or train journey.

    Exploring Lhasa city itself will require at least two days to cover the most popular highlights, such as the Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Sera Monastery, etc. Additionally, it's advisable to rest for several days in Lhasa to acclimate to the altitude if you plan to visit higher regions in Tibet later on.

  • Do I also need to book a tour while visiting mainland China?

    No, you don’t have to. As many know, one needs to book a tour through a travel agency when visiting Tibet. But you can travel independently in mainland China, as long as you get the Chinese Visa before entry. You can choose to visit the sights or take the trains or flights all by yourself.

    But it is also recommended to book your trip if you have trouble speaking or reading Chinese and are not familiar with the attractions and destinations. The best way is to book a China Tibet group tour with a Tibetan travel agency like us, to handle your Tibet Travel Permit, help to book the ticket in a smoother way.

  • How to get the Tibet Travel Permit?

    The Tibet Travel Permit can only be obtained by an authorized travel agency. As the leading tour operator with years of Tibet permit application services, we can help you to get the Tibet Travel Permit. All you need is to mail your copies of passport and Chinese Visa to us. After the permit get issued, we will deliver it to your hotel or address in mainland China.
