Of course! I hope you find some useful information in there -- but keep in mind that travel in China is easier now than it was when I went.

Considerations for Tibet:

Additional permission to go there. Not sure what the current situation is regarding the need for a group.

Acclimatizing to high altitude. If you fly you are more likely to have problems, if you take the train it will take longer to get there.

You said you had ten days.... And there is more to Tibet than Lhasa - where the current state of the main temple is unclear after a fire. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/17/w...mple-fire.html
