Additional Info
  • Not wheelchair accessible
  • On this tour, you will travel to demanding altitudes of approximately 11,975 feet (3,650 meters) above sea level in Lhasa, up to 16,404 feet (5,000 meters) above sea level at Everest Base Camp and over mountain passes of up to 17,060 feet (5,200 meters) above sea level when traveling between locations; it is common for travelers to experience adverse health effects due to this altitude, regardless of age, gender and fitness; it is highly recommended that you discuss this trip with your doctor prior to departure, and begin a regular exercise regimen in the weeks leading up to your trip
  • Rest breaks are available at any time throughout the tour if you find the walking to be too strenuous due to the elevation
  • After booking, the local tour operator will send you a packing list and other general information to help you prepare for your trip. You may also request more information about tips and prevention methods for altitude sickness
  • Be prepared for very cold weather; pack warm layers appropriately
  • In warm weather, please dress conservatively; shoulders and knees must be covered
  • There are no luggage restrictions for the trip, but Chinese domestic airlines only allow check in luggage of up to 44lbs (20kg) per person
  • At Everest Base Camp, the tent guesthouses usually reuse blankets for a few weeks at a time due to the limited washing facilities; you may bring your own sleeping bag for the guesthouse, if you wish; sleeping bags can also be purchased in Lhasa or in mainland China before your tour
  • Tour is not wheelchair accessible
  • Passport name, number, expiration date and country are required at time of booking for all participants
  • A current valid passport is required on the day of travel
  • Tibet tours must be booked at least 25 days in advance; upon booking, clear copies of all travelers' passports and Chinese visas must immediately be sent to the local tour operator in order to apply for and obtain your Tibet travel permit in time for your tour
  • Please note that if your Chinese visa is not an 'L' tourist visa, then you need to provide supplementary letters from your sponsored organization; please contact the local operator for more details
  • If you're flying into Tibet from mainland China: You need the original copy of the Tibet travel permit that the local tour operator will send to your hotel in mainland China. Therefore, please provide your hotel details (name, address and contact numbers) and your hotel reservation number. If you are not staying at a hotel and have a connection flight to Tibet from mainland China, please provide detailed flight information so the local operator can arrange someone from the tour company to deliver your permit to you at the airport in China when you arrive
  • If you're taking a train to Tibet from mainland China: You will only need a printed copy of the Tibet permit, which you will receive from the local operator via email
  • If you fly into Tibet from Kathmandu, Nepal: You don’t need to have a Chinese visa, but you do need a Tibet Group Visa (same as a Chinese visa) from the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu. When you send the copy of your passport to the local tour operator after booking, the staff will help you to get the Tibet Group Visa. The Tibet Group Visa fee is not included in the tour price, so you will be asked to pay at the embassy. Please keep in mind that even if you have a Chinese visa, if you enter Tibet from Nepal, it is required that you have the Tibet Group Visa. Please be advised that when you apply for the Tibet Group Visa, the Chinese Embassy will cancel your current visa. You can only apply for the Tibet Group Visa through a local Nepalese agent, so this tour operator's local agent in Nepal will help you obtain it
  • Single room or double room accommodation will be chosen at checkout. If a group with an odd number of people chooses double room accommodation, one person will stay in a single room and the extra single room price will be charged additional.
  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 10 travellers

This tour covered a fair amount. What was most worth while for me was the monasteries and temples and they were covered in a good level of neutral detail by our guide 'Dolma' who cared and respected a great deal for them. The mountains were incredible, but the travelling there
