There are some very basic guesthouses at the Syabrubesi Town in Nepal near the border, you can book upon arrival or let our partner in Kathmandu to book for you in advance.
After entering China Tibet, near the port about 23km there is the Gyirong Town, there are some hotels but not as good as those in Kathmandu and Lhasa, just some clean business hotels or like motel. Normally after our guide pick you up from the border, we will drive to Gyirong County to have some rest, because there will be better hotel condition and more choices on food, then closer to our destination for the next day.
Syabrubesi Town in Nepal
There is ATM in the Gyirong Town and Gyirong County, so you can withdraw money (RMB cash) directly. And also there are many scalpers at the border to do the money exchange business, but the exchange rate might not be competitive as official rate. If you just exchange for the tour use, there will be not much difference from the bank, so it is also acceptable.

I want to visit in Oct 2020 and do the Mt Kailash tour. I want to bring two of my grandchildren - aged 8 and 10 years old. Do you think it is possible?
Dear Mr. Ul***,
Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. I think it will be no problem for you to bring your grandchildren to do the trekking, as we had clients before who took child less than 4 years old did it, and they hired porter to carry him for some part. If you like, you can hire a horse and horse man to carry them to save the energy there. And also I recommend you to arrive in Lhasa1-2days earlier to make the children adjust the high place better if you have enough time. And I will send you the tour details, please check it by email. Best regards.
