Frequently Asked Questions about Tibet Small Group Tour

  • 1. How to get the Tibet Travel Permit?

    The most important document you will need for entry to Tibet is the Tibet Travel Permit, which can only be obtained after booking a pre-arranged tour with a registered Tibet tour operator or travel agency.

    Once you have booked your tour, we will apply for the permit on your behalf, using scanned copies of your passport and Chinese Visa. The approval process can take up to 15 days. Once approved, we will forward the permit to your hotel in mainland China, ready for your trip to Lhasa.

  • 2. How to get to Tibet? By train or flight?

    Getting to Lhasa can be done by flight from mainland China or Nepal, or by train from one of seven gateway stations across China. Flights are generally the fastest way to get to Tibet, and there are more than two dozen airports across China that have direct flights to the Lhasa Gonggar International Airport. Alternatively, you can fly into Lhasa from Kathmandu in Nepal, the only country with international access to the TAR. However, the flights are rather costly, and not affordable for everyone.

    The cheaper option, and often the better one, is to take one of the seven trains from mainland China to Lhasa, which depart daily or every other day from Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Chongqing, Lanzhou, and Xining. The trains can take from 22 to 53 hours to reach the Tibetan capital, but are much cheaper than flights, and you get to see the stunning landscapes of northern Tibet, something people that fly to Lhasa never get to admire. We can also help with your flight or train booking, to ensure that you can get the transport you desire on your expected dates of travel.

  • 3. When is the best time to visit Tibet?

    Tibet is a region of China that can be visited throughout the year. While the winters are cold in Tibet, they are not as bad as at the other two poles, and the region is just as beautiful in winter. However, the peak season for tourism in Tibet generally runs from April to October, when the weather is at its best for tourism. From late spring to the middle of autumn, the region sees its best time of year for tourism, and these peak months are the busiest in the year.

  • 4. Will I suffer from altitude sickness when touring Tibet?

    Simply put, yes, you most likely will suffer from some of the effects of altitude sickness when you first arrive in Tibet. Normally, with a couple of days of acclimatization in Lhasa, this will dissipate as your body adjusts naturally to the higher altitude. Plenty of rest, a good diet, proper hydration, and refraining from strenuous exercise can help you get over these effects faster and more easily.

  • 5. May I book a hotel by myself if I join in the group tour?

    Yes, you can book your own hotels for your group tour of Tibet, but it is not always advisable to do so. In order to book your own hotels, you would generally need to speak Chinese and have a Chinese-approved means of payment. And this would only work in the larger cities of Lhasa and Shigatse. Outside those, it is much harder to book accommodation yourself as contact may be limited. The best option is to let us know your preferences, and allow us to book your hotels or guesthouses for you, as part of our excellent service.

  • 6. Should I join in a small group tour as a solo traveler to Tibet?

    Unless you fancy paying for every aspect of your tour in Tibet, it is advisable to join a group tour when traveling to Tibet as a solo traveler. And the lower cost is not the only reason to join a group tour of Tibet. There are many other advantages as well. Primarily, you will generally pay a lot less, as many of the more expensive aspects of the tour are shared with the other members of the party, such as the cost of the guide, driver, and vehicle.

    It is also a good way to make new friends when traveling, and many of our solo travelers on group tours meet new people that become friends long after the tour is over. You can also benefit from having other people to travel with, as well as it being a lot safer for solo travelers, especially women. And we guarantee our excellent services throughout the tour, with limited tour sizes, professional tour guides, and guaranteed departure dates, no matter how many there are in the group.
