Frequently Asked Questions about China Tibet Nepal Tour

  • 1. What travel documents required for a China Tibet Nepal Tour?

    The first thing you will need is your passport and the Chinese Entry Visa (if you are going from China to Tibet) or a Group Tourist Visa (for those entering Tibet from Nepal). The Chinese Entry Visa can be obtained from your nearest Chinese Embassy, and processing takes around three working days. For those entering from Nepal, the Group Tourist Visa is applied for once you arrive in Kathmandu for the trip to Tibet, and takes three working days to process. Since the embassy in Kathmandu does not accept personal applications, one of our agents will be there to meet you and process the visa application on your behalf.

    The Tibet Travel Permit is required for all non-Chinese nationals entering Tibet, and can only be processed by a registered Tibet tour operator after booking a pre-arranged tour. Independent travel in Tibet is prohibited, so all tourists need to have guided tours. Once you have booked your tour, we will process the application for the Tibet Travel Permit on your behalf using a scanned copy of your passport and visa, if you are entering from China. If you are planning to enter from Nepal, we only need a scanned copy of your passport. Processing can take up to 20 days, so it is best to book early to avoid mishaps and disappointment.

    For all travelers, you will need to have a visa in order to enter Nepal, whether you are entering before or after your trip to Tibet. Fortunately, visas for Nepal are easy to arrange, and can be applied for using your passport and a passport-sized photo once you arrive at the airport in Kathmandu. Visas normally cost around 30 dollars, and can be applied for online up to 15 days before you arrive in Nepal, or you can use the kiosks to make the online application once you arrive. The barcode that your application submission provides is then given to the immigration officials, who will process your visa into your passport within an hour.

  • 2. When is the best time to visit China Tibet Nepal together?

    China is a vast nation, and the best time to visit is really going to depend on where you are traveling to in China. Across this huge country, there is something to keep you interested at any time of year, and in the four different seasons. However, it is best to avoid the Chinese National Holidays, as these are usually the busiest times for travelers in China.

    The best time to visit Tibet is normally from April to October, and while summer is the monsoon season, from June to September, it is also the peak season for tourism, as there is very little rain on the plateau.

    For Nepal, the best seasons are spring and autumn, from March to May and late September to November. These are also the best seasons for trekking in Nepal, the country’s most popular tourist activity.
