There are several ways from Kathmandu to Lhasa by overland. The most common and also economical way is the group tour, several people will travel together, and our agency will provide the guide and vehicle to pick up people at the border then go on the Tibet tour. If you would like to do it as private tour, that is OK too. In one word, travel agency will provide the whole tour package.
You can drive on your own too, but in this way, the special self-driving permit needs to be applied at least 3 month beforehand. Motorbike will be in the same process. We still need to arrange the guide to take care your group well in this way.
Bicycling the China Nepal Highway
Sometimes even you can ride bikes in this way, but this will take about 15 days or even more time from the border to Lhasa. Do not overestimate your ride ability in such high altitude place, so take it slowly is better.
The last but seldom people would take is on foot, trekking from the border to Lhasa would be more than a month to complete, as it is more than 800km to go. At present except the pilgrims who did the kowtow along the way, hardly the travelers would try it in this way.

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.
