Kathmandu Lhasa Fixed Departure Group Joining Tour

  • Best Price Guaranteed
  • Fully Protected
  • Expert Knowledge
  • Socially Responsible

This tour departs from Kathmandu every SATURDAY on regular basis. Independent travelers with different prospective can join this tour with us. While traveling from Kathmandu to Lhasa, you should bind in a group and travel together, however, we do organize a different "TIBET GROUP VISA" for every individual / couple, so after finishing the package tour in Lhasa, you can split from the group and make your own journey ahead.

Travelers, who would like to continue their journey to mainland China by Train OR by Plane, can join this tour. Also, alternatively they can fly back to Kathmandu from Lhasa after the tour. However, the Train ticket OR flight ticket should be booked and issued through us because we have to submit the copy of your Train ticket/flight ticket while applying the Tibet Travel permit for you. The Chinese Government would like to make sure that you are not going to linger in Tibet illegally after the tour finished. They want to make sure it, before they issue the permit for you.    

We are able to manage the Tibet group visa that will be valid for 25 days only. The count-down starts from the day you cross the Nepal/Tibet border. Those who wish to travel to mainland China can use the same visa, which is totally legal. But, if they would like to remain in China for long time, they have to obtain the individual Chinese visa by them, which is practically possible but we do not guarantee this. The visa will be valid for 25 days only. The visa cost ranges from US $ 85 to US $ 175 depending on your Nationality. The Chinese government had applied different visa fees for different Nationalities.    

This is a joining tour but seats are unlimited. So, the group size can be fairly large sometimes but it depends on time (months / season) that you are traveling. In average, there will be 12 to 20 people in one group. No matter about the group size, there will be only one tour guide for the whole group. Indeed, the Tibetan tour Guide can't do his/her job as a guide for such a large group, so please don't expect too much from him/her. In Tibet, the main job of guide is to deal with Chinese Military/Police check posts on the way and sort out the papers / permits with them.

For the first two nights, we provide accommodation in dormitory rooms (3 bedded OR 4 bedded rooms) with common toilet outside. But, from the third night onward, we provide double room (twin bedded OR big bedded) with attached bathroom in descent hotels (tourist standard).
