Trying to upload some photos, but seems not able to do so, those who want to see some photos can check out below website:

Tibet Visa ISSUE:
Can apply to LASA local agency, but have to join their designed trip as a group.

http://www.xizangcyts.com/ (this is just one example, there are many more agencies in Lasa u can search for price comparison)

I believe this is the cheapest and easiest way to go there if you are not intending to travel as a "Tourist", but "an explorer", log into the website, talk to an online agent (Chinese speaking only), decide a route, pay RMB 500, email passport and China visa, takes 1 week to process, but need to apply 15 days ahead. They will email u back all the paperworks for u to enter Tibet (by train - copy is ok, by flight, need original, so can ask them to courier the original to your domestic hotel address where you will departure to Tibet), once reach Tibet, pay the agency the balance fee and ready to explore.

This is not a commercial ads, just for personal interest.

Destination, plan or schedule can be discussed and changed. Anyone interested, please email me at redapple88811@hotmail.com for detailed discussion.


Time to explore...Join me if you can...

Cheers,

Apple

It is different for Non-Chinese, there is a permit for Tibet as some part of Yunnan which a physical guide needs to accompany as well as some documents and a few other troublesome paper work and bank details . I was planning for XinJiang/Tibet/silk route this coming autumn
