Time: 19-02-2019 This Article is Composed by BudgetTibetTour

First your Nepal side driver can take you to Nepal immigration office to check out from Nepal part. Then they can take you to the friendship bridge point (border line between China and Nepal), where you need to take all of your luggage and say goodbye to your Nepalese driver there. Then you might have to to wait in a line if there are many people wait to check in in peak season. Then you will enter a Customs room, where you will find our guide holding a paper of your name and also have your permit in his hand which has been recorded, and you need to give your passport and China Group Visa and the permit there in the office to check in. As our guide cannot go further in the room, so you will have to go inside patiently there. You will have no problem being picked up there with the clear signs in every place.

Hi Nancy

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?

Thanks

Answered by Nancy

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.
