Getting To and From Tibet
1) By Air. From April to November there are 2 flights a week available between the Kathmandu and Lhasa. Schedule air services fly from Kathmandu to Lhasa, and back every Tuesday and Saturdays with additional flights on Thursdays from July. This flight last a little over one hour and gives you a fabulous panoramic view of Everest and the Himalayas. It is indeed one of the most spectacular flights in the world. However, individual travelers can get neither a visa nor an air ticket, which are only available to members of an organized group.
2) By Road. Kathmandu via Dram (Khasa) to Lhasa As with the Qinghai-Tibet Highway, the China-Nepal Friendship Highway is a popular route for travelers. This route brings you close to a number of famous sights, such as Shigatse, Gyantse, and the Everest Base Camp. It takes 5-7 days of traveling over the Tibetan Highlands to get to Lhasa via this route. This overland trip also subjects individual travelers to the same restrictions as access by air from Nepal.
Our Itineraries include all combinations of flight and road options, with the most popular being the flight in, and road out option as in the Kathmandu-Lhasa-Everest Base Camp trip, the Tibet Overland, and the Tibet Cultural tour. We will also take care of the necessary visa's for these journeys.
