Dear Ms. Pa***,

Thanks very much for your inquiry. From your travel time, here we recommend one 6 days Exploration of Legendary Ancient Cities group tour to you, and we currently have one departure date on 14th of November. Taking train from Lanzhou to Lhasa will cost you about 24 hours, and we are happy to help you book train ticket. Please kindly note that there is no "permit-only" or "accommodation-only" service, foreign tourists are not allowed to travel Tibet alone, you have to book a pre-organized tour including guide, car, and hotel as well. As you are only one person, joining a group tour is the most economical way. We will prepare guide, car, accommodation, Tibet permit for you. Applying for Tibet Permit requires copy of your passport and Chinese visa, and it usually takes about 15-20 days, if you want to join our tour, please send copy of your passport and visa to us quickly. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Best regards.
