Traveling Tibet Made Simple

Independent traveling in Tibet is not allowed. You need to work with a travel company such as Far & High to obtain entry permit for Tibet and for this reason, Traveling to Tibet sounds like a complicated process but we will make it very simple for you. Whether you go on one of scheduled tours or take a private customized itinerary, our tour specialist will walk you through the process.

If you are entering Tibet from Nepal, we will apply a group visa for you in Kathmandu with prior arrangement of visa invitation document. If your travel begins from a mainland Chinese city, you need to obtain Chinese visa on your own in your home country and Far & High will arrange Tibet Entry Permit that you will pick up at the gateway city.

Going on a scheduled group tour

  • If you are going on one of our scheduled tours, you just need to fill out the trip application form online or we can email you  a pdf form that you can complete and fax us back. 
  • We will advise you if you are to apply your Chinese visa in your home country.
  • We will assume that you will arrange your international flight tickets yourself unless otherwise you request us to arrange it.
  • Final trip dossiers and Tibet Travel Permits will be mailed to you about a month ahead of the trip.

If you are taking a private custom tour:

  • Decide what season you are traveling and how long trip you are looking for.
  • Let us know the places, sights and activities you are interested in. You can take ideas from our tours listed in the website.
  • Let us know the number of travelers.
  • Decide what class of accommodation you would prefer. While there are options of budget, superior and deluxe accommodations in Lhasa, the towns of Gyantse, Shigatse and Tsedang have only three or four star hotels at the top end. Rest of the places in Tibet, accommodations are simple guesthouses with basic facilities. 
  • Basically our services start from and end in Lhasa. Please indicate if you need accommodation, transfers and tours in the transit cities. We have our own operation teams in gateway cities like Kathmandu and Chengdu and we have representatives in Xinning, Xian Beijing and Shanghai who can arrange you hotel, airport transfers and small tours.
  • Tell us if you have any other special dietary requirement (e.g., vegetarians, non-smokers, etc.)
  • All internal flights are part of land arrangement. Please, let us know if you are to make your own internal flight arrangement.
  • Once we gather all the basics of the tour you are looking for, your travel counselor will send you a tour proposal with price quote. The tour program can be further customized.
  • Booking: Once we reach into an agreement on itinerary, service requirement and price, the next step is to fill out the booking form and provide us tour deposit of US$ 300 by check or credit card. 
  • We will advise if you are to apply your Chinese visa in your home country.
  • We will assume that you will arrange your international flight tickets yourself unless otherwise you request us to arrange it.
