Entering Lhasa from Kathmandu, you need to apply for Chinese Group Visa in Kathmandu, the group visa is the only voucher for you to enter Tibet from Nepal. That is to say it is useless to have any other kind of Chinese visa obtained in any other country. The Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu accepts group visa application form from 10am till 2pm from Monday till Friday, but it takes at least three working days to get the Chinese group visa issued. So, please leave yourself enough time for visa application in Kathmandu. Firstly, we will apply for a Visa Invitation Letter with a copy of your passport about 20-25 days before your departure date based on the fact that you book a tour with us that early enough; Next, we will send the visa invitation letter to you and our visa agent partner in Kathmandu (about 10 days before departure date);
Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu
When you arrive in Kathmandu, you need to meet with our partner and give your original passport to him, and he will go to Chinese Embassy and apply for the group visa for you. Finally, pick up your passport and Chinese Group Visa from our partner and start your tour to Tibet. There are two kinds of group visa application, one is normal application, which takes four working days; another is urgent application, which takes three working days. During visa application, you don’t have to stay in Kathmandu all the time, you can travel other places in Nepal with a photo copy your passport. Different from normal visa printed on the travelers’ passport, Chinese Group Visa is a separate piece of A4 size paper with your name, gender, date of birth, nationality, passport number, entry and exit date of China on it.

Dear Ms. Pa***,
Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. At present we do not set any date in Oct 2020, and we can set any date based on yours, and if possible I hope you can come in next half of Oct as all the cost would be cheaper and less people there.
There is environment bus in Kailash, and people can take about 10 km with bus taking, but after that, no vehicle will be available during the trekking, so if your husband cannot take trekking, he has to rest in hotel with our driver and wait all of you come back. And also there is horse hire, people can hire a horse to ride, but as the road off mountain, because it is quite cliffy, so people are not allowed to ride a horse and need to take foot on own. And also the highest mountain pass will be around 5300meters high. So better for him to rest in hotel. But we will visit the holy lake without problem. I will send you more details by email, please check it there, best regards.
