Answered by Nancy

Dear Gene Raymond Kinne,

Greetings from Nancy Chung at BTT. For the 7 Days Lhasa to Kathmandu Tour via Everest Base Camp, there will not be much walking daily as you will be driven to each place and dropped off there. And please no worry about your age, ha-ha… we had clients who were 83 years old taking this tour before without problem, and I think you will be ok too. best regards to you.

Dear Mr. Srihari,

Good day to you. This is Nancy from BTT and I am glad to be at your service for your Tibet tour. Please kindly let me know your travel date and your nationality( as there are 23 countries people cannot enter Tibet from Kathmandu, so I need to check out) before I can provide you more details about the tour. And also we can arrange you the transfer from Kathmandu to the border if you like. Best regards to you.
