Dear Do***,

Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. Based on your requests, and I think I would like to recommend you to fly to Lhasa from Kathmandu then take the 15days group tour, as we do not have group tour starting from Kathmandu then head to Kailash from there. All group tours will start from Lhasa. We have the 15 Days Kailash Trekking back to Lhasa group tour on 12th Sept. and 3rd Oct. 2019, sorry we have not set up a tour to Guge yet, but if you take it as private tour, no problem about it, of course the fee for solo tourist would be quite costly in Sept or Oct. and on 3rd Oct we have one female who would like to share room. And I will forward you more details to your email. Best regards.

user portrait Mr. Em*** from: 5 Days Lhasa & Yamdrok Lake Hiking Tour

Hello,

I am writing you to get more information on your 5 days Lhasa and Yamdrok tour.

Especially I would like to know if you can confirm me the dates and prices mentioned on the website for the month of October 2019 (apparently 8 departures in the month, prices between 590 and 680USD depending if beginning or end of October?). Regarding the price, I would also like to know if it is possible to get cheaper ones if spending the night in a cheaper accomodation, such as guesthouse, instead of 3 star hotel.

I thank you in advance for all this information.
If I get interesting information, I might make my choice of date quite soon, before the end of May.

Best regards,

Dear Em***,

Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry.

1) Based on your situation I would like to recommend you 6days Lhasa to Shigaste group tour which will cover Yamdrok Lake too as this tour we can run even if there are 1 people, because we can mix it to 8days Everest group tour and get back to Lhasa by train from Shigaste. As for the 5days Yamdrok Lake tour, we only can start it when they are at least 2 people.

2) You can book the hotel in Lhasa on your own, so I can cut the hotel fee in Lhasa for you, and in Shigaste we can arrange you the guest house which will be cheaper but there will be no breakfast and you can have it on your own with 10-20RMB for meal.

3) If you can come to Tibet after 15th Oct, which will be better as less cost on the tour. And I will give you the choice for the whole month. Right now we have the date on 1st Oct, 3rd Oct, 16th Oct and 24th Oct and all the dates have people booked.

And I will forward more details to your email. Best regards.

I only have single entry China Visa will that be a problem if I go Tibet and go back to China?

Answered by Helen

Dear Mr. Mac,

Thanks very much for your inquiry. Tibet is part of China, so it's no problem for you to travel Tibet and go back to China with your single entry Chinese visa. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Warm regards.
