Explore Tibet, a Lhasa-based Tibet tour company, is happy to announce that they are now one of the few agencies who can acquire Tibet Travel permits, with no group size limitation, and no mixed nationality limitation.
“The situation has been really tricky this year, and the rules have changed several times,” Explore Tibet said. “But the recent change has made it much easier for foreigners to travel to Tibet. Our agency can provide permits for foreign travelers, and they are not limited by nationality or group size. So travelers from different countries can now travel together as a group, and the group does not have to be 5 people or more.”
Explore Tibet offers fixed departure join-in tours for travelers going solo. “This is the easiest way to explore Tibet, with other new friends from different part of the world,” the agency said. “Our small Tibet group tours maintain high quality services while keeping the prices competitive. These tours are a guaranteed departure even with a single traveler.”
Fixed departure tours offered include an 8-day tour to Mt. Everest, an 8-day overland trip from Lhasa to Kathmandu, a 5-day trip of Tibet highlights, and a 4-day trip of Lhasa highlights. Travelers should contact the agency for more details.
Previous restrictions a limited the number of people in a group to five, and required that they all be of the same nationality.
“The Tibet permit situation for foreign travelers in Tibet has changed multiple times this season,” Explore Tibet said. “There are a lot of rumors about the permit, but we have the latest information from the Tibet Tourism Bureau.”
There are still several restrictions for Tibet travel. Citizens of the UK, Norway, Korea, Austria and the Philippines cannot get permits at this time. And currently no foreign groups are permitted to visit the Mt. Everest base camp. Groups are allowed to drive to the border town of Zhangmu and view Everest and the Himalayan range from the village of Old Tingri.
Explore Tibet is a locally-owned travel agency committed to responsible tourism, Tibet travel permit and sustainable practice.
