Nepal Tibet Tour

Map of Nepal to Tibet Tibet and Nepal are located in the hills and foothills of the Himalayas, and the natural scenery is different. Tibet has a world-class glacier, lakes and other fantastic landscape resources, while the territory of Nepal is a green-clad, beautiful scenery. In addition, the travel time between the two places is highly complementary. Nepal's golden season is from November to next March, in contrast, the Tibetan golden season between April and October.

Tibet and Nepal have a unique and complex culture, covering lifestyle, religion, architecture, festivals and other aspects. Visitors interested in Tibet may also be interested in Nepal, plus two places in the geographical location are also very close, so to visit two places once is a wise choice. And the only international flight to Lhasa is from Kathmandu, which also facilitates transportation between Tibet and Nepal. Or you may take an overland tour to see the beauty of the Himalayas along with the famed Sino-Nepal highway, as well as the top scenic spots. Choose from the Tibet Nepal tours below and start your adventure across the mighty Himalayas!

Note: If you'd like to have your Tibet and Nepal tours from Kathmandu, you're required to apply for your China Group Visa instead of a Chinese Visa. Getting a China Group Visa usually takes 3 working days. So please leave a few extra days in Nepal.

Frequently Asked Questions

What documents are required for my Nepal Tibet tour?

While planning trips to Nepal and Tibet, you must ensure that you have the following travel documents.

Nepalese Visa

Tourists require a Nepalese Visa to enter Nepal. If your home country does not host a Nepalese embassy, Nepal offers you the option of obtaining a visa on arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. If you are traveling to Tibet by crossing the Indian national border, you can choose to get a visa on arrival.

China Group Visa

China Group Tourist Visa is a special permit that allows tourists to enter Tibet via Nepal without having to issue a separate Chinese visa in your country first. It is issued by the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu.

Tibet Travel Permit

If you plan on traveling and exploring Tibet, it is mandatory that you have a Tibet Travel Permit. This permit is issued by the Tibet Tourism Bureau (TTB) for all travelers. While this permit allows you to visit most parts of Tibet, some places require additional permits as well. You can obtain this permit by booking yourself a tour with Great Tibet Tour, a recognized, well established and professional tour operator. Once you have confirmed a tour with us, we will do the rest for you.

Visiting Nepal and Tibet between the months of February and May and then during October and November is advised. During your visit to Nepal and Tibet, you must take a few treks around the grand Himalayan mountain range. From both the destinations, witness the majestic beauty of Mount Everest. Tourists can also absorb the natural extravagance of Lhasa and the spiritual heart of Tibet. You can perform Kora around Mount Kailash, and visit the most talked about holy Lake Manasarovar as well as the most beautiful Lake Namtso.

At present, you can choose the overland trip or fly directly to Tibet from Nepal. We will arrange a car or 4WD and drive along the Friendship Highway. You can experience the change of nature, landscapes and seasons in a short time with an altitude rising from Nepal to Tibet. The journey may last about a few days covering the main highlights in two regions.

Flying to Tibet is the most comfortable and convenient way. There is only one flight to Tibet every day operated by Sichuan Airlines and Air China alternatively. It usually takes 1hr and 20mins.

First of all, you need to plan your travel time. The length of time depends on your vacation arrangements and the attractions you want to travel to Nepal and Tibet.

Secondly, you have to plan the means of transportation to travel into Tibet. There are usually two options: land travel or air travel. The most popular is to enter Tibet by land and then enjoy the sights all the way. Of course, you can also choose to fly from Kathmandu to Lhasa for comfortable experience.

Thirdly, you have to consider whether to travel in a group tour or a private tour. According to local laws, Tibet does not allow independent travel so it's necessary to work with a local Tibet travel agency. If you choose a group tour, you will join other people in a fixed-departure date, share the itinerary, vehicle, and tour guide, which will greatly cut down your expense.

Due to the differences in age, gender, and health level, the impact of altitude sickness on everyone is different. But for the sake of health, we recommend that tourists slow down to allow your bodies to adapt to higher altitudes, drink plenty of water and rest. Avoid strenuous exercise, and reduce your coffee and alcohol intake. In addition, your tour guide will provide professional and effective assistance in emergency situations. Please don't worry about it and enjoy your adventure.

Mount Everest is located on the border between Tibet and Nepal, with Tibet in the north and Nepal in the south. The summit is in Tibet.

If you enjoy trekking, you may choose the south EBC in Nepal, which it takes 10 days to trek from Sagarmatha National Park to EBC and back. Along the way, you can enjoy the magnificent scenery of the snowy Himalaya mountains. But there is no direct bus to the south EBC so you have to trek all the way.

If you just want to have a glimpse of Mt.Everest, we suggest you go to the north EBC in Tibet, where you can arrive by car and the scenery will not disappoint you. Besides, this route saves your time and budget. After visiting the north EBC, you can drive to Lhasa/Kathmandu directly and continue your tours to Tibet and Nepal.
