2023 Travel Advisory: Great news! Tibet travel is now open to everyone!

After 3 years of closures, Tibet travel permits are now being processed for all international travelers, no matter if you are traveling from outside China, or if you currently live and work in China.

To travel to Tibet you must have both a Chinese visa and a special Tibet travel permit, which you must get from an official Tibet travel agency. Ask us for an introduction to a reliable Tibetan travel agency here, at no cost to you.

To get detailed pricing from a Tibetan-owned travel agency, fill out the form below. There is no obligation when you fill in the form — it just gives you the chance to get your questions answered and see some possibilities, with no pressure.

  • First name only is okay.
  • Please be sure to confirm your email in the second box.
  • (Examples: USA, Australia, UK. Sorry, we cannot help Indian nationals going to Kailash in groups of less than 50, due to government policy.)
  • This is a small sample of the many tours available. If you don't know what you want, no problem. Just check the "I'm not sure yet. I need some advice." option.
  • Usually, our agents need at least 21 days advance to pull permits. In winter, it can be a bit faster. Due to travel restrictions during the month of March, please avoid travel March 1 to April 15. Take a guess if you don't know the exact dates of travel. Note: the date is formatted Month/Date/Year.
