Question: Your questions about our tour package?: how much is this tour in Australian dollars in total, my wife is Chinese from leshan and we want to get a train back to Chengdu after the touron a sleeper train can you
Answer:
Hello,
 
After your tour request, you send us two email, one telling us that your target price is $600 and the other is for hotel in Lhasa and Train back to Chengdu, right? If I understand correctly, here we got the information for you.
 
1) For foreign guests visiting Tibet, you need to apply for Tibet Travel Permit with a tour agency and your stay in Lhasa must be accompanied by a local tour guide.
 
2) For train tickets back to Chengdu, we can try to book it for you, but cannot guarantee that we can get it.
 
3) If you need us to arrange the 6 Days Lhasa and Shigatse with a 3 star hotel, the cost for one person is around USD $1,300.
 
4) If you just need to book train and hotels, please book it online and be sure that you can get the Tibet Travel Permit.

Question: Your questions about our tour package?:,Can you provide a hiking tour to Tibet, only Lhasa and a lake Namtso can be included? We don't need common routes- just a hiking. Probably you can provide permits for us and just help to get a direction - no need to give us a guide. How much?
Answer:
, but we just can arrange the tour with local guide and vehicle, and we can arrange Tibet Permit for you by this way.
 
Even you just need hiking in Lhasa city and Namtso Lake,  you still need vehicle from Lhasa to the late.
 
What's your hotel budget?
 
Await your reply soon.

Answer:

Hi Nancy,

As for your request, we could arrange a Private Tour Package for you to visit Lhasa, Tibet. But the tour could only start and finish at the border of China and Kathmandu, so you have had Chinese visa before entering China, and we will prepare the Tibet Travel Permit for you, is it OK? If you think it fine, then please let us know so that we can continue to organize a tour package for you.
