  1. When is the best time for Tibet tour?

    It is suitable for travel to Tibet from April to early November, and the best time is August and September. But if you only stay in Lhasa, you can go there any time of the year. Get real time weather report in different places of Tibet.

  2. When is the best time for Everest tour?

    Early May and early October are the best time to visit Mt. Everest. Due to the clear weather, you have great chance to see Mt. Everest's true face (if you are lucky). From December to February, you'd better not to go to this area because it is too cold - except you are real Great Adventure People.

  3. Can I travel with children?

    Tibet may not be an ideal destination for young Children. The climate and generally harsher conditions in Tibet may not be ideal for young children. The sights and attractions are not those which children like to visit and facilities will be very primitive. If you do decide to bring your young child to Tibet please ensure that you bring all your child's daily needs with you.

  4. Are the Tibetan dogs are dangerous?

    Tibetan dogs are dangerous. Do not approach any stray or wild dogs you see and carry a stick if you plan to wander off on your own or at any time after dark.

  5. What kind of Tibet travel documents I need?

    Besides a valid passport and a valid Chinese visa, you need two different kinds of permits for traveling in Tibet: the entry permit (TTB permit) and the Aliens' travel permit (if you want to visit the unopened area in Tibet). Click here to read more about "Tibet visa" and how to get them.

    Dear Mr. Li,

    Thank You for the opportunity to give some feedback!

    Our journey through China was perfektly organised! For me, it was a very good combination between sightseeing, historical information about the Republik of China and beside that, it became nearly the feeling of a roadtrip with good old friends!!! On the one hand, our driver Ladu (maybe I wrote it wrong!?) drove us very safely and though we couldn't speak a word together, the communication was warm and friendly! On the other hand, our guide Pipoo was always very careing, when we had some problems with the altitude, so that we were never worried. As I said before, all the time he was able to make a good mix between interessting historical facts about the sights and the developement of China, but also framed it with a lot of fun. It never got boring or exausting. Pipoo was also very helpful, when we had some problems with the service of one hotel, to manage this problem. So even in those few problemsituations, we never felt uncomortable or lost!

    I want to thank You Mr. Li and Your Team for organising this unforgetable trip for us. From my side, i wish defenitly to come back some more times in this beautiful country and hope to have the same guidance and service I was able to enjoy this time!

    Kind regards

    Anita

    Hi Leo,

    Just to say that all went well in Tibet. Lily did a fantastic job and also my guide in Lhasa, that Potala palace is unreal, and the other sights also unique, was a real rewarding trip one I've been looking forward to for a long time.

    I'm over the moon for having had the chance to visit there.

    Thanks to you and your company. All the best was a pleasure.

    Regards

    Harri

    Dear Mr.Leo Li,

    Please find below some comments regarding our experience in Tibet-Nepal.

    All the guides, in Chengdu (Mrs. Gila), Tibet (Mr. Po Ta) and Nepal (Mr. Bishnu) provided us an excellent service, they were very informative, forbearing and helpful about every matter along our stay (check in/out in the hotels, tickets for the attractions, rides, queues etc etc), also the drivers were very skilled and safe in driving us to the many visited spots.

    The vehicles were in good condition of maintenance, we always found bottles of water on board for us (provided by the assistant driver)

    The daily organization of the visits in China and Nepal was mostly done in the perfect timing, respecting the schedule (some more consideration about Nepal will follow).

    The included lunches and dinners, were very welcome. 

    Almost all the hotels were very good, high standard, comfortable, clean and the their staff very helpful.   The only exception was the hotel in Gyirong, of very low level (one star ? maybe less) and very old.  Furthermore the morning after we slept there, we found out that there was no water in the bathroom and it was really a bad situation for us and at our request to do something the staff was not helpful at all.  It seems that the missing of water in that hotel (maybe in all the city) is recurrent , but in this case would have been very simply to provide some spare water in the rooms.

    A note about the "road" on the border from China to Nepal.... from the information provided in the program/itinerary we supposed to find a bumpy and muddy one ....but in reality it was much worst than that, the journey by car was stressful, very long and extremely dangerous (no guardrail at all and the overhanging on the river in the valley !!!).

    The drivers were very skilled and they drove in the safest possible way, but at end for the time needed to get in Kathmandu would have been better to return from the Everest Camp Base to Lhasa and take a flight.

    The itinerary in Nepal should be balanced a bit better considering the huge time needed for the transfers, of course not because of the schedules provided by the guide or the driver but because of the incredible traffic jam and the very poor conditions of the "roads", for example both Patan and Bhaktapur visits would have been deserved more time. 

    Same consideration for the time needed to go and to come back to Nagarkot, where, beyond that, the view is also too variable because of the weather.

    In Chitwan park, the possible options to chose from, should have been provided (and booked) before (as we requested many times by email)  because not everyone can enjoy what scheduled by default. Some of the group didn't like to ride the elephant because this causes him/her pain, and for the same very poor conditions in which the animals were kept (chained and with no space), they didn't like the "elephant breeding center".

    To conclude, the suggestion is to include in the itinerary/program all the possible information and details (even the sensitive ones, as  the mentioned bad treatment of the animals), so that the clients have the right to decide what to see and what to skip.

    Dear Mr.Leo Li, hope what above gives you a better feedback about the great adventure we lived thanks to your agency services. 

    And please share our special thank also to the representatives of the local nepalese agency, they were very welcoming and helpful.

     

    We'll be happy to be back to you, with further details in future if requested.

    Best Regards

    Alfonso & friends

    Hi Leo,

    Must say, my Tibet trip with you guys was one of the memorable trip ever. Tibet is blessed with good landscaping. Each corner has scenic beauty and lots of culture. People are very welcoming. So, overall wonderful experience.

    When you received us from Chengdu airport untill dropped us at the railway station by our Tibet tour guide by Dhargye, my family felt very special touch and care by you guys. We really appreciate it.

    Even, was polite and trying to explain us each and everything in detail in Chengdu. Even he offered his mosquito spray to us. We got free very early in Chengdu so got extra time and watched movie too. Food was too good in Vegetarian restaurant.

    After 36 hours journey, we found our self tired so Dhargye took us to the hotel and showed us vegetarian restaurant next to our hotel... almost daily we had meal there.

    Tibet guide Dhargye, is the BEST. He knows everything big and small about Tibet. No matter, if it is food, people, crowd, timings, altitudes... anything. His small small tips created the wonders in our whole journey. He never followed the crowd, so we saw and experienced the best ALWAYS.

    I got high altitude sickness at Mt. Everest. He brought oxygen cylinder at 4.30 am which made me feel little comfortable and changed his plan without thinking further and asked us to leave mountain 5.15. He promised to show us better sunrise on the way which everyone did and I slept in the car for another hour with cylinder. He was so concern same our driver. Must say, they both deserve a pat.

    For me my husband and Son they appeared as life savior. Big Thanks for that.

    If I say hotel, It was not that bad but definitely could have been better. Hotel Mansarovar had some sewage problem, so the washroom was so stinky. We barely breathe in the bathroom. Couldn't say anything as language problem.

    Another point is, no one asked or suggested us to take flight till Xining and then train to Lhasa. In this way we could have save our big 10-11 hours easily.

    Overall, It was a nice trip. Our many friends are ready to explore Tibet and we will definitely recommend you and your company (if we get good discount in future...LOL).

    Will send you the pictures.

    Thanks
    Jyoti

    Hello Leo,

    Firstly I would like to thank you for your work in organizing our tour. It was fabulous!

    Very important to us was our guide. Lobsang was absolutely fantastic. He was very knowledgeable, passionate about his country and tentative to the group needs. We had a fabulous experience because Lobsang was so good. We are feeling very grateful for him sharing his piece of the world with us. 

    I will be sure to recommend your company and Lobsang with others who are interested in visiting Tibet. 

    Thank you,

    Lisa 

    Life is Good. Get out there!

    Dear Leo,

    First of all, thank you for being there 24*7, literally! Because everytime I had a problem with my travel plan, I troubled you. I remember when I started planning the trip, I had a problem in booking the train tickets. You were the one who helped me out for train tickets, travel dates and even local advice in Chengdu.

    Thank you for working so hard to make my trip memorable, thanks for listening to all my problems, thanks for always be there as a tour guide and a friend.

    XIE XIE NI WO DE PENG YOU!

    Lots of best wishes!
