I grew up in the Landscape City of Leshan which is marvelous and eye-catching. Leshan City is a renowned tourist resort as it boasts the 'No.1 Buddha under Heaven' -- Leshan Giant Buddha scenic area and Mt.Emei scenic area.
I enjoy travelling and I like mountain climbing best. I love to see different views and take our customers to see the different scenery. If you would like to travel in China, you only need a brave heart, a backpack and then go ahead. When you are walking on the way, experiences can deposit your temperament.
Moreover, wider knowledge may expand your breadth of mind. I am. I’m waiting for you; making all efforts to provide the best quality service. Let’s go!"

Is independent tour allowed in Tibet?
In order to protect the centuries-old cultural relics, Tibetan fragile environment and respect the tradition of Tibetan people and considering the limited reception capacity in Tibet, all non-Chinese passport holders must travel Tibet with a licensed agency.
What documents do I need if I am planning to travel to Tibet?
First, you need to have a valid passport, and then apply for a valid Chinese visa for your travel to China. A Tibet Travel Permit (sometimes people call it Entry permit or TTB Permit) is needed for your Tibet tour. More visas or permits, like Aliens’ Travel Permit, Military Permit and Border Pass, Group Visa are also required if you want to visit more further regions outside Lhasa, Shigatse and Gyantse.

How to Avoid High Altitude Sickness?
Before visiting Tibet, you need to keep physically and mentally healthy. Taking a physical examination and consulting your doctor for advice are also important. It is also helpful to travel from lower altitudes to higher altitudes to acclimatize your body to the altitude gradually. During your journey in Tibet, remember to avoid strenuous activities and always walk at a slow pace and take deep breaths.
Is there any age limit for travelers to Tibet?
No. There is not any age limit for travelers who plan to visit Tibet. And it all depends on your physical condition. It will be dangerous to visit Tibet if you are suffering from heavy cold, severe anemia, high blood pressure, high blood pressure, heart disease or any other breathing diseases, because they may cause serious high altitude sickness.
What are the hotels like in Tibet?
Tourism in Tibet has developed a lot in recent years and hotel facilities and service have also greatly improved. Due to special location and geography, living standards in remote cities may not be as you expect from a hotel in other parts of the world. Hotels in small cities and the Everest Base Camp are very basic and simple. Usually you only have a public bathroom with a squat toilet to use.
