    For the 14-days trip, the cost tentatively will be approx 4K SGD, more ppl confirm on the trip, most likely can get a better price.

    When I was in Yunnan last year our driver told us that he would only do the Yunnan-Tibet trip if there are 2 cars as the route is very remote and it's necessary to have a back-up vehicle.

    ya, that is always better to have 2 car, and 6 is the most idea to go...

    hi longman and everyone going to tibet. Please don't take chances cause the security is still very very tight. Chinese government troops are still stationed along the route. The last people they want to see is group of you carrying camera heading for tibet. Also tibetians may think you're Beijing Journalist covering tibet issue. You may end up with broken cameras than good pictures. My advise is don't take the risk now. Postpone your trip to a later date. May mid next year.

    Take good care if you guys still want go!

    for people who want to see the tibetan culture, the indian states in both northeast and northwest corners offer very much as well. i also think there is less cultural pollution, but ain't sure. zoeljasa and championboxer, if the 2 weekers can gather a small group, you guys can plan a separate duration and route. 7 days is only good enough for accessible places, so drop the idea of going inland and remote. longman, maybe u can stretch your arm over to sgtravels to look for hardcore backpacker who can often travel for longer period.

    just returned from ladakh bordering west tibetan SAR. excluding flight, two weeks only cost us about S$400. probably another less than S$100 is spent for 2 days in delhi.
