  • Travel policy this year is relatively lax compared to 2013 and 2014, for most visitors. Groups of all sizes and nationalities can now enter Tibet on the same permit. Starting this month, the Tibet Tourism Bureau has started issuing 2015 entry permits. Travel to Mt. Kailash will be possible beginning in May; however, word has been received in the last week that Indian passport holders must travel with other Indian passport holders when visiting the area. Keep in mind that they are not restricted from entering Tibet or visiting other areas with non-Indian passport holders.
  • The quickest and easiest way to arrive for the tour is by air. There are daily flights from cities across China and several from Kathmandu each week. Those with a few extra days ought to consider riding the Qinghai Tibet Railway. The scenery is fantastic! If you are taking the train, be prepared to be flexible on travel dates, as tickets can only be booked a few weeks in advance. Now that the 2015 travel season has started, there have been reports of tickets selling out very quickly.

This time of year can be a wonderful time to travel Tibet; temperatures are beginning to warm and rain showers are less common now than during other times of the year. Conditions like these will remain until mid-May to early June; they make for great Tibet trekking tours and unforgettable overland journeys. Availability is filling up quickly, so now is the time to take action.
