Tibet travel is an excellent way for students to satisfy their craving for summer adventure while gaining the global perspective they need to set themselves apart from their peers. Now that summer is coming up quickly, Tibet Ctrip Travel Service-TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com) discusses recent changes to travel regulations that make visiting Tibet easier than previous years.

According to travel research conducted by Tibet Ctrip Travel Service-TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com), students seeking adventure this summer are finding that traveling in Tibet is an experience that can help build the global perspective they need to set themselves apart in a competitive market for jobs and graduate school admissions. Unique cultural experiences and unparalleled natural beauty reward those who make the trip happen; thanks to this year’s relaxed travel restrictions students will find it easier to visit Tibet when traveling with friends of different nationalities. Now that summer is right around the corner TCTS shares the details.

A Tibet travel permit, also known as a Tibet visa, is required for all foreign travelers in Tibet. In previous years, such as 2013 and 2014, there were many more restrictions on what kinds of travel group could and couldn't get a permit. Previously groups had to consists of 5 or more travelers whose passports were all from the same country. This made visiting Tibet difficult for groups of traveling international students, as they frequently consist of people from all over the world.

In 2015 this is no longer the case, per an update to travel regulations by Tibet’s Public Security Bureau. Travel groups may now consist of any number of travelers of any nationality, with the exception of Indian passport holders visiting the Kailash area (they must travel with other Indian passport holders). Although this caveat still exists, groups of traveling students still have plenty of options at their fingertips. Some of the most popular options include TCTS’s Lhasa culture tour, for those who only have a few days, and the Everest Base Camp tours for travel groups who have more time on their hands.

Tibet is an incredibly unique travel destination. In just a few short days visitors can satisfy their taste for adventure and walk away with valuable knowledge of Tibetan culture and history. An experience like this is perfect for students looking to enjoy time away from classes while engaging in enriching activities that expand their knowledge of the world. With summer right around the corner now is the time to book a tour!

Tibet travel agency TCTS is based in Lhasa with more than 12 years experience.
