How to Book a Tour to Tibet? 

Booking a Tibet tour is a breeze! We've covered you with these five simple steps to book your dream tour.



If you're planning a trip to China or Nepal and need to book flights from your city, we suggest purchasing them directly through www.trip.com or a quick Google search. However, if you're looking to book flights or trains from cities within China to Lhasa or Kathmandu to Lhasa, we're happy to help! Just let us know, and we'll take care of the booking process for you.

1. Please Pre-plan your Tibet tour.

If you are already working in China or have a China visa, it might take 2-3 weeks to obtain a Travel Permit. However, if you are outside of China and need a China visa, it is recommended to plan a Tibet tour 1-2 months ahead of time to guarantee a timely acquisition of the China Visa and Travel Permit.

2. Travel from various Chinese cities to Tibet or from Kathmandu, Nepal to Tibet.

When organizing a tour in Tibet, there are two choices for getting to Lhasa: via train or flight from Chinese cities or via flight or land travel from Kathmandu, Nepal.

3. Choose a tour from our Tibet Tour Menu and pay the deposit.

We have three different tour options for you to choose from on our TIBET TOUR menu: Join Group Tours, Private Tours, and Trekking Tours. You can find all of these tours on our website. To secure your spot, all you need to do is deposit 50 USD through PayPal using the email address provided at infotibettravelers@gmail.com.

4. Apply for a visa to China.

  2. What is the process for obtaining a Chinese visa from the Chinese Embassy in Nepal?

Once you have your China Visa, we will obtain a Tibet Travel Permit using the scanned copies of your passport and China Visa.

5. Please provide this information to apply for a Tibet travel permit.

  1. Confirmation of the itinerary and prices to finalize both.
  2. Could you confirm the date of your entry from cities in China to Tibet, as entry into Tibet is only permitted on that particular date? 
  3. Confirmation of the number of travelers in the group.
  4. Confirmation of traveler's occupation.
  5. Please provide a clear scan copy of your passport and China visa.
  6. If a Chinese visa is not an (L) travel visa, the Tibet Tourism Bureau requires a documented letter, student card, business letter, or work letter from your company's letterhead.
  7. When arriving in Tibet via plane, we ask for the mainland China address and contact number to send the original Tibet travel permit. We kindly request travelers stay one night in a hotel near the airport in mainland China since we are only authorized to transmit the Tibet travel permit in China. Therefore, we will need details of the hotel's name, address, and contact number to mail the license to the hotel reception.
  8. A scanned copy of the Tibet travel permit will be sufficient to board the train if arriving in Tibet by train. We will send you the scan of the Tibet travel permit around 5-10 days before the trip. Travelers can print the Tibet travel permit to buy train tickets and board the train.
  9. For deposit and payment choices, we require a payment of 100 US Dollars per individual to be made to our PayPal account at infotibettravelers@gmail.com. 

When travelers reach Lhasa, there are two options for completing payment: using cash in US Dollars or YUAN or sending the payment via an international bank account transfer using US dollars or Euros a week in advance.
