Essential Information


At a higher altitude, you get less oxygen in the air. It takes your body a few days to get used to this less oxygenated environment. During this visit, you will spend the first four nights in Lhasa, which gives us plenty of time to acclimatize. Therefore, it is a good idea to exercise or jog regularly, preferably a few weeks before traveling at high altitudes. We recommend that guests consult their doctor before starting their trip, especially those who suffer from known heart, lung, or blood disorders.

Best travel time

Summer (June, July, and August) and autumn (September, October, and November) and Spring (April and May) are the best seasons for this trip in Lhasa. We can also enjoy this trip in the winter months, but it can get colder.

Necessary documents

The documents below are essential and must be with you at all times.

  • Minimum of six-month Valid passport
  • Health and travel insurance card
  • Plane or train tickets etc.
  • Few passport size photos
  • All necessary entry permits

Changes in travel Itinerary and cancellations

We endeavor to arrange tours as stated on itinerary but reserve the right to change the itinerary or replace activities, hotels, meals, or transportation if we deem it necessary due to any reason. We also have the right to cancel the trip any time for any reason, like unforeseen circumstances or circumstances beyond our control. In this case, we will book you again on another day. However, if we cannot book you again, we will return a full amount


Sorry to say that you cannot do an independent tour in Tibet. Instead, you have a private tour or group tour with a guide, driver, etc. Even a separate trip in Tibet restricted by adding many checkpoints along the way, especially when travelling outside of Lhasa or visiting some sensitive areas. There is always someone to verify your permit, and you need to have a tour guide to help you with these formalities.

8 days Everest Base Camp Tour from Lhasa

We did this Lhasa Everest base camp tour In September / October 2018. It was an exhilarating and incredibly impressive tour with other 15 participants from four different countries. The trip arrangement worked perfectly, which was decisively shaped by our experienced and committed Tibetan guide Mingma, who organized everything perfectly and always ensured the best atmosphere with his friendly and cheerful treatment. He always had an open ear and a solution for special requests and minor problems that some participants had. He also provided us with a lot of exciting information that has significantly expanded our knowledge and image of Tibet. As a result, the entire tour was a great experience that I will remember for a long. Many, many thanks to Mingma
