                                    Do I really need a travel permit if I want to visit Tibet? How can I get one?

                                    Yes, foreign passport holders including Taiwanese and Non-Chinese ID card holders need to have a travel permit to visit Tibet according to the rules and regulations of the China National Tourism Administration. 

                                    For clients who book tours with us, we will handle the travel permit for you. You only need to provide us with the necessary information including your full name, nationality, age, gender, occupation, passport number as well as photocopies of your passport and visa at least 20 days in advance. After the application is checked and approved, the Tourism Bureau will issue the travel permit about two weeks prior to your entry to the region. Then we will deliver the travel permit to your destination before Lhasa so that you can board the flight or train to Lhasa successfully. 

                                    From start to finish, we will help you get everything ready for a memorable and best Tibet tour.

                                    When is the best time to visit Tibet?

                                    You can visit Lhasa, Testang, Gyangtse and Shigatse all year round, although May to October is especially favorable for sightseeing. Also, if you want to best explore the Everest Base Camp, we suggest you avoid the period from late October to early April as your journey may be hampered by the severe weather.

                                    Is altitude sickness a big problem? How can I avoid it?

                                    Travelers sometimes get altitude sickness when on the Tibetan plateau. Here are some tips to avoid and alleviate altitude sickness.
                                    • Get a thorough physical examination and seek advice from your doctor if you plan to visit Tibet. If you suffer from anemia, hypertension, or heart problems perhaps you should not visit the area.
                                    • Be careful not to catch a cold and also ensure you are in good health before heading there. Bring medicines for colds, diarrhea and fever with you. Some nasal ointment and throat-moistening lozenges will be of great help for those who are sensitive to chilly or freezing weather conditions.
                                    • On the first day of your arrival, avoid vigorous activities such as walking fast, running and swimming. Bathing and smoking are also not recommended.
                                    • Drink enough water and eat lightly. Snacks with high caloric content, like chocolate, will come in handy.
                                    • Please notify your private guide immediately to get instant help if you feel any discomfort.
                                    You need never to be nervous or worried about your vacation. Take it easy and you will adapt to the plateau environment very soon with the help of the guide.

                                    What is the appropriate behavior when visiting religious sites in Tibet?

                                    Tibetans are Buddhists, so it is very important to respect their beliefs. Below are some tips you should know about.
                                    • Visitors need to walk clockwise around the religious sites and facilities, like temples, monasteries, pagodas, Mani stones and prayer wheels.
                                    • Visitors are not allowed to touch Buddhist statues and sutras. Also taking pictures and smoking inside temples or monasteries is prohibited.
                                    • Avoid wearing shorts at the religious site.
                                    • Do not touch anyone on the head.
                                    • Do not step on the threshold of any house, temple or monastery.
                                    Though Tibetans have some religious taboos, they are always very friendly towards tourists.

                                    Is it convenient to use credit card and ATM cards when traveling in the region?

                                    Unfortunately, credit cards are not widely accepted in Tibet, and they can only be used at certain hotels. It is advisable to exchange enough RMB in big cities like Beijing, Xian, Shanghai or Chengdu before heading to Lhasa.

                                    ATMs are also not widely available in the region, so you may wish to withdraw money or exchange money at the Bank of China if you run out of Chinese currency. Remember to bring your passport, which must be presented when exchanging currency.

                                    I found all Tibet tour packages 2021 cost more than those of other major tourist cities in China. May I know why?

                                    Yes, the relevant travel costs in Tibet are indeed higher than those of other cities. A major reason is that higher transportation fees add to the price. Firstly, there are still only a limited number of cities with direct flights to and from Lhasa, and the airfares are usually higher with fewer discounts. Secondly, there are relatively few licensed tourist vehicles in the area, thus their cost becomes expensive. Thirdly, long drives are involved on trips because the distances from the airport to downtown Lhasa, as well as from one city to another are far, although road conditions have been improved a lot. In this case, the cost of fuel also accounts for a percentage of the total price. Although it is a bit more expensive to travel to the region compared with some other destinations, its landscape, religious traditions, culture and unsolved mysteries are of great value.

                                    Can I do independent travel in Tibet?

                                    Independent travel is not allowed for foreigners in the region. All visitors need to join an organized group or have a private trip with a confirmed travel itinerary, a licensed guide and a driver arranged by a travel agency. To meet clients' different interests, we design a 4-day private Lhasa package and some two weeks long Tibet tours starting from Beijing, Xian, Shanghai or Hong Kong via Guangzhou. Besides, we can also extend the private trip from Lhasa to Nepal and India.

                                      Last year, we were lucky to travel to Tibet for a few days with a clear sky and beautiful natural scenery. On the way to Yamdrok Yumtso Lake, one of the three holy lakes, we saw a lot of Tibetan mastiffs. You could take pictures with them if you like. Notice that there you need to pay extra money. Under fine weather, the green lake especially looked like a beautiful painting. At the end of this Lhasa tour, we drank the local Buttered Tea in Lhasa and hung out on the streets. Felt so leisure!!

                                      What impressed me most was the trip to Yamdrok Yumtso Lake with the enthusiastic explanation and professional photography skills of the tour guide. I am grateful for this perfect Lhasa tour arranged by TCG.

                                      I started my spiritual journey in Tibet where I must go all my life. The itinerary of the 10 days Tibet tour was reasonable. The guide was responsible and open to all my questions. She was very effective in helping us. The hotel was very good and comfortable with considerate service.

                                      While visiting, the guide gave us knowledgeable explanations of every scenic spot. The Jokhang Temple and Potala Palace impressed me most for their historical stories. In the Yamdrok Yumtso Lake, the guide took the initiative to take photos for us. We had great fun! It was a pity that we could only see the snow scene in Namtso in March this time. It should be more beautiful when we go there in summer. ... More

                                      Tibet was the destination I would like to travel to most except for Beijing in China. Finally I completed my Tibet travel dream through this 10-day Tibet tour! TCG was recommended by a colleague of mine, and I was very satisfied with this trip. My consultant Kelly had arranged a suitable itinerary and comfortable accommodations for me according to my needs. All the sights I visited lived up to my expectations. The Potala palace looked very spectacular, and the temples, old streets, Namtso Heavenly Lake, Mt.Everest... How fascinating!! Thanks again to Kelly who was in charge of arranging the wonderful schedule! Looking forward to traveling to Hangzhou with TCG next time! ... More

                                      I got to say the Yamdrok Yumtso Lake was beautiful! It was one of the three holy lakes in Tibet, and we all couldn’t help marveling at its stunning views of rivers and hills. Travel China Guide was very considerate, and their attitude and efficiency in solving problems were also first-class. We truly enjoyed a good time on the 5 days Tibet tours to Lhasa - Yamdrok Yumtso Lake!

                                      PS: Traveling to Tibet is easy to suffer from altitude sickness, so it is important to make adequate preparations and choose a careful travel agency! ... More

                                      We had an enjoyable holiday during the one week Tibet tour itinerary of Lhasa! The schedule was reasonably arranged and our hotels were well-selected, offering first-classic service and luxury rooms. Especially I spent a great time in the Four Points By Sheraton in Lhasa. It was well located, only a ten-minute walk to Jokhang Temple and an eight-minute drive to the sacred Potala Palace! Strongly recommend this hotel!

                                      Here I would like to express my sincere appreciation to our guides for their painstaking efforts and considerate arrangements! It was really a fantastic tour to Tibet in China!
