Tips For Tibet

Jump to last reply

In about ten days I leave on my second attempt to visit Tibet. However, with Tibet now more likely to stay open to tourists, I am feeling more confident about success than earlier in the year.

For about US$1000.00, I am doing a ten day trip from Beijing to Lhasa with an overnight at Everest Base Camp returning through Nepal. I am using Budget Tibet Tour for this trip and so far I have been happy working with them.

If you have done this trip before I welcome your input and suggestions especially for the train ride from Beijing. Our group does have “Soft Sleepers” booked but this will be the longest train ride I have ever taken and in some ways I hope the 44 hours pass quickly.
