    Not intend to go at Feb, most like the 2nd half of this year. I prefer all hardcore photographers in a group, and he/she shall have this in mind: it's not a typical shopping/sunbath type of trip. We are not going to see common things and you should only join me if your heart answers yes.

    Depending which month(s). Mid October to Early December is the best time to go places like Tibet/Nepal/Bhutan etc.

    Budget?

    To me, no budget. Spending as necessary. But I may make it cost effective through some insider's way (cos I am a Chinese).

    No fixed plan. Not flying directly into Tibet, but via bus. Experience the scenery along the way to LaSa, capital of Tibet. I was told a friend's friend's friend spent as less as 4000RMB (<S$1000) for 20 days as a backpacker. I will check for more info later. The planned group shall be 4~8 persons, backpacking.

    Guess budget is about S$2500 to 3000. Don't like too cold as it will be heavy carrying warm clothing. Better plan for the warmer part of the year.

    In fact, according to my plan, I will be back home and go visit northwest part of China, the silk road, during May-June. Tibet will be another one, and hopefully New Zealand end of this year. Big saving is required so I cannot upgrade anyone of my lenses at the moment. Sigh... 50mm/f1.8 is broken into two pieces liao...

    My home is far from the silk road, I may discuss with you and maybe some others who are interested privately.
