We plan to travel from europe to india by road and enroute would like to visit Mansarovar. We plan to travel in the month of July 2021. We enter into Tibet from Lhasa then visit mansarovar and then leave tibet to enter into nepal towards Kathmandu. We would be driving a european registered car. Please also let us know what kind of permits, visas and health checks required.

Answered by Beatrice

Foreign travelers are not allowed to drive in Tibet so the best solution is to hire a vehicle and tour guide to visit Tibet. You may visit Kathmandu first and park your car here. Then take a flight to Lhasa and take an overland tour back to Kathamndu. Hope this info helpful for you.

Asked by Natt***

I will spend 5 days (April 12-16, 2019) travelling in Nyingchi and nearby places, may be the route to Ranwu lake.I plan to fly from Chendu to Nyingchi directly.I would like to make the Tibet travel permit and also Alien"s travel permit. How to do these and how about the cost per person?
Thank you.

Answered by Caroline

In your inquiry, you mentioned that five of you would like to visit Nyingchi from 12-16 April 2019.

According to the regulations, foreigners have to provide Tibet Travel Permit when traveling to Tibet. Besides, must be accompanied by a tour guide. Not travel agencies will provide Tibet Permit only without a tour booking. Because as the inviter, travel agencies have to take responsibilities for clients’ behaviors in Tibet. Thus, we could arrange the Tibet Permit and Aliens’ Permit for your as long as you book a tour with us. Please have your understanding!

I will send you the quotation after you confirm the arrangement. If you have any further questions or doubts, please let me know without hesitation.
