Most Asked Questions about Kathmandu to Lhasa Tour

Do I need to worry about the altitude sickness for Kathmandu to Lhasa overland tour?

Indeed, traveling overland from Kathmandu to Lhasa is much more challenging than doing it in reverse, due to the huge altitude gain. However, there is no need to panic for it. To ensure our clients’ safety, we extended the original 7-day Kathmandu to Lhasa tour to 8 days. So travelers can spend one night at Syabrubesi (2380m) and Kyirong town (2700m) respectively for the border crossing. And slowly travel to Shigatse (4000m). We provide enough oxygen supply and our seasoned local guide will closely follow each of our client’s health and provide necessary help when needed.
Our designated customer service manager and the professional team in both Kathmandu and Lhasa will closely cooperate with each other to ensure you a safe and pleasant tour.

What’s about the road condition between Kathmandu and Lhasa?

Overall, the road condition is superb, esp. as you enter Tibet from Kathmandu and drive all the way to Shigatse and Lhasa. You can enjoy the newly-built asphalt road along the way. Whereas, most of the bumpy roads occur in mountainous regions (around 10km) of Nepal bordering Tibet. The treacherous road along steep cliff will give you the adrenaline rush.
Meanwhile, since awful lots of winding roads and sometimes up to 9-10 hours of driving are involved, it’s advisable to bring the motion sickness pills or download podcasts just in case you might need it.

Will you be staying overnight at EBC?

Well, the extreme altitude of EBC (5200m) would be too high for the travelers to spend the night there. So, after a brief exploration at EBC and Rongbuk Monastery, you will be heading to Tingri (4800m) for the overnight. Besides, the accommodation is much better than that of EBC.

Nope, it’s not enough. You need to get a Tibet Permit and a China Group Visa for entering Tibet from Nepal. You can email the photos of your passport and Chinese visa to our travel consultant to apply for Tibet Permit. While the China Group Visa, you have to apply for it with your original passport after you land in Kathmandu. The processing of it takes at least 3 business days and our Nepali staff will help you.

Since the monsoon season of Nepal in summer often leads to landslide and muddy roads at border regions, so the most ideal time is March to May and Oct to Nov. The offseason from Nov to early Feb is also an option for budget-minded travelers, like students.
