It's all starting to look good for Tibet: the agency in china confirmed last week that currently there are no restrictions
on group size or nationality!
The cost is high though, so if anyone else is interested in joining us
with their own vehicle, we've got a route and a quote (6,900 EUR for 1 vehicle, 7,782 for 2 and 8,613 for 3) do get in touch!
Haven't negotiated anything yet with the agency (neither route nor price) so if anyone has any advice (just starting to trawl the posts for info now), happy to hear from you.
Suggested route is (also viewable on Tripline
Mongolei – Erlianhaote – Urangab – Beijing – Datong – Taiyuan – Pingyao – Luoyang – Xi’an – Tianshui – Lanzhou – Xining – Golmud – Namtso See - Lhasa – Shigatse - Mt. Everest – Zhangmu - Nepal
He recommends 25 September to enter China (first week in October a week of national holidays...bad time to enter he says) and we'll take 30 days. I also have a description from him in my inbox as to which sites we'll visit along the way: let me know if you'd like me to email to you.
