Since the promulgation and implementation of the “Regulations on the Administration of Tourism” in Tibet in 2008, all foreign tourists who are visiting Tibet must book the travel services in Tibet. An experienced tour guide and a qualified tour bus should take part in the whole tour of the Tibet Itinerary. When applying for a Travel Permit for Tibet from the Tibet Autonomous Region Tourism Administration, a travel agency in Tibet must submit the detailed itinerary.
Tourists, especially the backpackers, may cost high and with limited flexibility to travel to Tibet, because they will spend a lot of money to rent a car and hire a tour guide for the whole trip. Therefore, it is necessary to book a trip to Tibet from an authorized travel agency in Tibet. We apologized to refuse your inquiry if you only wish to obtain a Tibet Travel Permit without sign up the itinerary with us. But we did find solutions that increased flexibility and minimized costs.
