How to Travel to Tibet from Malaysia

Every year, a considerable number of Malaysians choose to journey to Tibet, which is a widely acknowledged fact. You may be interested in knowing the reasons behind this, and we are pleased to share them with you today. So, let us explore these reasons in detail!

1. 30-Day China Visa-free for Malaysian citizens.

Before starting the reasons, we have got some excellent news for all Malaysian Passport holders planning to travel to Tibet! Malaysian travelers can now visit China without the hassle of a visa for up to 30 days.

Malaysian travelers can take advantage of the fact that all the tours in Tibet can be finished in less than a month. This gives them the opportunity to set aside additional time for exploring other cities in China, such as Chengdu, which serves as an intermediary point to Lhasa. Knowing this fact can significantly benefit those who are preparing to travel to Tibet from Malaysia.

2. Taking a flight to Tibet from Malaysia

If traveling from Malaysia to Lhasa, Tibet, the most recommended route is through Chengdu and Kunming. We can help you get discounted flight tickets. The flight from Chengdu to Lhasa takes 2 hours and 10 minutes, while the flight from Kunming to Lhasa takes 2 hours and 40 minutes.

3. Malaysian Hindu Travelers.

Are you a Malaysian Hindu looking to travel to Tibet? Then you must visit Mount Kailash, the Palace of the great Hindu God Shiva. And guess what? The shortest way to reach this holy destination is in just 12 days! You don't need to worry about the arrangements; we at Tibet Travelers organize group tours for Hindu Malaysian travelers a few times a year.

Join us for a spiritual and adventurous journey to Mount Kailash and holy Lake Manasarovar. Siva, the leader of a Malaysian Hindu pilgrim group, visits Tibet multiple times a year with fellow pilgrims and is acquainted with Tibet Travelers Manager Tenzin Dhondup, who happens to be his good friend.

4. Malaysian Muslim Travelers.

For 2016, our initial tour is being organized for Yasmin and her three children, who belong to a Malaysian Muslim family, as numerous Malaysian Muslims are visiting Tibet. There are various reasons behind this trend, with one being the significant presence of Muslims in Tibet, along with the existence of a Mosque located near Bhakor Street in Lhasa city.

For the first time, I was allowed to witness the exquisite beauty of the Mosque in Lhasa while visiting with them. I am so grateful to Yasmin for being there for me during the early days of my business when things were tough. Thank you so much, Yasmin! Plus, we've provided Halal food options for Muslim travelers so you can feel comfortable and at home during your visit. Suppose you're a Muslim traveler interested in experiencing Tibetan culture and nature. Let's explore together!

5. Malaysian Buddhist Travelers.

Malaysian Buddhists love traveling to Tibet because it's the ultimate destination for Mahayana Buddhism! The Jokhang Temple, in particular, is an absolute gem among Buddhist temples worldwide. It houses a 2600-year-old Buddha Shakyamuni statue that Buddha himself blessed, making it a must-see for any spiritual traveler. The center of the world and the palace of Buddha Chakrasamvara is what Mount Kailash is also referred to as.

We recommend Mount Kailash and Mount Everest as the top travel destinations for Singaporean travelers. For those seeking spiritual experience, Mount Kailash is considered the center of the world and offers a 52km trek around the sacred mountain over three days. We have written a detailed article on this, which you can read by clicking on this link.

We recommend a few travel itineraries for travelers. The first Tibet travel journey is a 10-day Tibet travel that begins in Lhasa and culminates at Mount Everest base camp and Namtso Lake. The second Tibet trip we recommend is a 17-day Tibet travel journey from Lhasa that takes you to Mount Kailash, where you will trek for three days over 52km at an altitude of 5000 meters. During this tour, you will also visit the Guge Kingdoms and Mount Everest base camp.

If you're a traveler intending to visit Nepal following Tibet, we highly suggest our 8-day overland excursion from Lhasa to Kathmandu, which includes a stop at Mount Everest's North Face Base Camp.
