Tibet Small Group Tours

Tibet is vast, in that it normally covers a long mileage from point A to point B. Besides, the living standard of Tibet is much higher than China’s inland provinces. For instance, if a can of soda sells for CNY 2 in China inland, it will be CNY 5 in Tibet. That’s why if you were traveling alone, it’s better to consider a Tibet tour group to share the expense with other travelers by saving at least 30%.

Our Small Group Tours include the most classic itineraries. Led by our experts and with a maximum of 12 travelers, you will discover Tibet's best sights and enjoy a premium travel experience at an affordable price. The departure is guaranteed once you book confirmed group tour packages. Even if we fail to recruit others, no extra charge will be forced upon you.

Be smart with your money, join our fantastic group and enjoy a worry-free vacation!

Frequently Asked Questions

How to get a Tibet Travel Permit?

The Tibet Travel Permit is a necessary document for international tourists before traveling to Tibet. In fact, you can't even board a train or plane to Tibet without this permit. To get this permit, you first need to book a tour with us. Then, send us a photocopy of the information pages of your passport and Chinese visa. Once we've received all these copies, we will hand them over to Tibet Tourism Bureau to process your permit. It normally takes around 8-9 days. We assure you that we will deliver this permit to you at your hotel in mainland China or email a copy of the permit to you, according to your means of transportation. Please plan at least one month for your Tibet Travel Permit before you set to Tibet.

Tibet can be generally reached from two basic access points, namely: mainland China and Nepal. Hence, all points of entry to Tibet originate from these two countries. 

If you enter Tibet from mainland China, you need to apply for the Chinese Visa in your home country in advance. You can take direct flights from major cities of mainland China to Lhasa, such as Beijing, Shanghai, Xi'an, Guangzhou, Chengdu, or Kunming. You can also choose to take a train to Tibet. The top five cities to take a train to Tibet is Xining, Beijing, Chengdu, Xi’an, and Shanghai.

If you enter Tibet from Nepal, you need to apply for a China Group Visa at the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu even if you have already had a Chinese Visa. It usually takes 3 working days. There is a daily direct flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa, which takes about 1hr 30min. Nepal to Tibet Overland Tour is also available, and it takes about 4 days from Kathmandu to Lhasa or vice versa. 

We offer a one-stop service to secure your train & flight tickets to Lhasa. Please feel free to contact us and our staff will help you book your preferred tickets & schedule. 

It depends on where you would like to visit. The top three destinations in Tibet are Lhasa, Shigatse, and Nagri. Actually we have already designed the top three destinations in our itineraries. 

For your first time trip to Tibet, if you have 4 to 6 days, you may have a glimpse of Tibet by joining 4 days Lhasa City Essential Group Tours or 6 Days Lhasa Gyantse Shigatse Group Tours. For most travelers, 8 Days Lhasa Gyantse Shigatse Mt. Everest Group Tour is our best seller. If you are going to have a pilgrimage trip, 15 Days Mt.Everest& Mt.Kailash Kora Pilgrimage Group Tour would be your choice.

If you are very interested in the natural landscape, 10 Days Lhasa Gyantse Shigatse Everest Namtso Group tour is a good choice. However, if you are going to Kathmandu, 7 Days Lhasa Everest Kathmandu Overland Group tour is perfect for you due to the good value and stunning scenery. 


Generally speaking, the best time to visit Tibet is from April to October. However, it entirely depends on what you want to see and to do. In fact, most tourist spots in Tibet can be visited at any time of the year, such as Lhasa, Everest Base Camp, Shigatse, etc. But a certain time of the year is better than others. For visiting Everest Base Camp, you may go there in April and May, or September and October with a clear sky and awesome visibility for having a better view of the Himalayas, and starry sky. Also, it's the best season to have trekking tours such as Mount Kailash Trekking tours.

Usually, our group size is 3 to 6 people, the maximum number is 12. It’s our belief to ensure our members an excellent user-experience. Other travelers come from all over the world. It's fun to travel with global tourists with different backgrounds, professions, interests, and so on.

You are welcome to bring your children to join our Tibet group tours. We quote prices for children according to their age. For infants below 2 years old, they are free of charge. For children between 2 to 12, there's a big discount for them if they don't occupy a bed. For teenagers aged 12 and over will be charged as adults. 

Not definitely. Only 1 or 2 clients going to the hospital due to altitude sickness among our thousands of travelers of all ranges of conditions every year. So the data is less than 0.1%. Please do not worry about it.

Generally speaking, altitude sickness is a series of physical discomfort when someone gets to a place with a high elevation, usually 2,700 meters(8,859 feet) and up. The elevation of Lhasa is 3,650 meters(11,975 feet). It's possible to have mild symptoms of altitude sickness like shortness of breath, tachycardia, or fast heart rate, headache, insomnia, and dizziness a few hours after your arrival. Usually, you will get restored in 2 days. In case the symptoms of high-altitude sickness persist, just inform your guide about it. Our travel guides are trained to handle any problem you will encounter in Tibet and they will send you to the hospital as soon as possible.    

If you travel by train, you will adapt to the high altitude better as you will ascend your altitude gradually.

Sure, you can book hotels of your own choice. Please inform your travel consultant about your accommodation to synchronize everything for your tour(ensure pickup and dropoff). However, you might find it's hard to book a hotel or lodging in the remote regions in Tibet like Mt. Kailash and Everest Base Camp. Please feel free to turn to our staff for help.
