Dear Ms. Dita,

Thank you very much for your inquiry and welcome you to join our tour. Entering Tibet from Kathmandu, you need to apply for the Chinese group visa in Kathmandu, which will cost your 3 or 4 working days. If you arrive in Kathmandu on 21st Nov, you can start to apply for the group visa on 22nd Nov, then you’ll get your visa on 26th Nov (24th and 25th are weekend). We currently have departure date on 27th Nov for 4 days Lhasa city tour, 6 days Lhasa – Shigatse tour, 8 days Tibet Mt. Everest tour. You can fly from Kathmandu to Lhasa on 27th and join any tour that you prefer. I will send the detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Best wishes.

user portrait Mr. Vincenzo from: 7 Days Lhasa to Kathmandu Tour via Everest Base Camp
Hello,
I'd like to subscribe the tour "7 Days Lhasa to Kathmandu Tour via Everest Base Camp" starting from 30th September.
I'll be in Chengdu on around 20/25th September. I have read you have an office there, it is possible to pick up the passport personally there? Do I need to buy a train ticket from Chengdu to Lhasa far in advance? To do it, I need the Tibet visa already done? In a post published on your website you mentioned an English website where purchasing the ticket, can I get it? Is it possible reaching Lhasa by bus from Chengdu?
In case any issue arose for reasons beyond my control, would you refund the 200 dollars you ask in advance to book the tour?
Thanks in advance
Answered by Helen

Hi, is it possible to do the tour "20 Days Big Loop Northern Tibet Adventure with Mount Kailash" without Kailash Trekking?( we are 60 and 61 years old) And what would be the price for 2 person in September 2019?  
Answered by Nancy

Dear Mr. Manfred,

Greetings from Nancy Chung at Budget Tibet Tour and I am so glad to get your inquiry about Tibet tour. Yeah, it would be no problem that you would not like to do the Kailash trekking for the Big Loop Northern Tibet Adventure with Mt. Kailash, and we can customize the tour for you if you will take it as private tour. Your age would be no problem at all we even had clients who was 73 years old did the tour with trekking in Kailash. And I will send you the price in email with all the tour details. Please check it. Have a nice day to you.
