Asked Questions from our Clients



I will be in Nepal in April and wanted to go to Tibet as well. I thought about the Lhasa Mt. Everest Kathmandu Overland Group Tour for 7 days. How long and how much does it take me from Kathmandu to Lhasa (the way isn't included right? the title is confusing a bit ^^), should I wear extra shoes for this tour (because of the weather, the route, I don't know) and is there a tour ending at the 6th may? Thanks in advance! Best regards, Sarah Isabell



In your inquiry, you mentioned that you would like to visit Tibet in April, and you are interested in our 7-day Lhasa Mt. Everest Kathmandu Overland Group Tour. Yes, you should arrive Lhasa from Nepal by yourself. The most common way is to take a flight to Lhasa from Kathmandu. It usually takes around 1-2 hours. The way from Tibet to Kathmandu is included in the itinerary, which means you will arrive at the Nepal border when the tour finishes.

It is very important to have a strong comfortable pair of shoes. No high heels, no new shoes.




We will arrive in Katmandu on the 13th of April, stay there until the 18th and then get a flight to Lhasa to start the tour with your agency. Please let me know what you think and if this is a good trip plan or you suggest something else. As soon as we arrive in the Nepal border (after the tour), we will start our trip back to Katmandu, so we can get our plane back to Europe on the 28th of April. Thanks!

Interested in Lhasa to Kathmandu tour w EBC hike. Do you assist in obtaining Tibetan Permit/Chinese visa. I will be available for this tour 16-28 May and I would like to do it during this period of time. Thank you



Yes, we can help you apply for Tibet permit and Chinese visa. For China visa, you can apply it from your local China Embassy. Usually, they will ask you to provide the evidence for your booking hotels, round-trip flight tickets, etc. to show you are a tourist in China. For Tibet Permit, we will arrange it for you. This tour is a group tour with the fixed itinerary and departure date. It is not included EBC hike, but you can have enough time to see stunning Everest Peak at EBC and walk around EBC. How about having this tour on May 18th? Here is the brief itinerary for your interested 7 days Lhasa Mt. Everest Kathmandu Overland Group Tour

Myself and my husband want to come on the group tour next year, possibly around July fir our 19th wedding Anniversary, we would like to pay a deposit and pay the remaining balance over this year and upto when we leave if possible? Thankyou Mrs lorna Richards



In your inquiry, you mentioned that you and your husband would like to join our 7-day Lhasa Mt. Everest Kathmandu Overland Group Tour in July 2019. To be honest, it’s quite far from now that we haven’t had the rates for tours in 2019 yet. I can only give you an itinerary and quotation for your reference. Of course, you could pay a deposit to confirm the tour booking first. The balance can be paid 7-days before the tour starts by PayPal or on the first arrival day in Lhasa in cash. If there is something changed, we still have enough time to amend it accordingly.
