Thanks so much for your promotion email, and I suggest you take the whole trip with us, because we need apply for the Tibet permit for you, and you also must have the tour guide to company with you for entire trip, so you cannot visit Lhasa alone without guide, and this is the policy by local Tourism Bureau.

We can arrange all sightseeing including The Potala Palace, The Jokhang Temple, and Barkhor Street in Lhasa, and you need 8 days for the entire trip, is that OK for you?

In addition, do you need flight from us? from which city to Lhasa and back to which city?

Asked by Bre** Date Added:
Question: Your questions about our tour package?:,8 Day Photography tour to mysterious Mount Everest,Could we join the group? Do you have already people for this group? When will start this trip in June? We have working permit in China. What do you need to get Tibet Permit for us? When is the last time to book the trip in Tibet? We are from Xuzhou (Jiangsu Province) and will take the flight to Lhasa. Could you recomend me where from should we take the flight, maybe from Xian? In that case we will take the night train from Xuzhou to Xian,After Lhasa we will take the night flight to Chengdu and stay there for 2 nights (visiting Panda and Leshan Giant Buda),How is it possible to go with the train to Chongqing? We will bord to Yangtze Cruise from Chongqing to Wuhan - 3 nights/4 days (or to Yichang if to Wuhan is not possible). Then we must go somehow to Wuhan and from there take the flight Wuhan - Guilin. We will stay in Guilin for 2 nights (1 day Li River Cruise, visiting rice filds,..) Flight from Guilin to Kunming - visiting Stone Forest. Flight from Kunming to Xuzhou,I think I can make flight and hotel reservations by myself. But to compare the costs, you can send me two options:,1. if you book for us the cheepest flights (also nights flights) + all transportations (train, bus) + Yangtze Cruise from Chongqing to Yichang/Wuhan without hotels,2. if you book only fligt from Xian to Lhasa + tibet tour 8 Day Photography tour to mysterious Mount Everest
