Namtso in Winter
Since the heavy snowfall in the Namtso area of Tibet on October 8, the scenic spot has been suspended for the protection of tourists. On November 3, we learned from the Namtso Scenic Spot that the scenic spot will continue to be closed to the guests, and the specific opening hours are yet to be determined.
"When can I open it? Can I visit the Namtso Scenic Area now?" For the past month, visitors have been asking about when to open through multiple channels such as Weibo and scenic phone consultation, but the answers are not to receive tourists temporarily. On November 3, Namtso Scenic Spot Management issued a notice from Dangxiong County Tourism via Sina Vlog: due to the poor road conditions for the reconstruction and expansion of the Namtso road and the fact that there are many snow and ice weather in winter which may cause dangers of traffic safety. Taking into account the safety of tourists, the Namtso Scenic Area will continue to close to tourists since November 1, 2018. After the road condition improved, the opening time will be noticed.
At present, the mobile APP and WeChat ticketing platform have stopped selling tickets for the Namtso Scenic Area, and the shuttle bus to the Namtso Scenic Area have also been suspended. If citizens and tourists want to know the opening time, road conditions and weather of the scenic spot for the first time, you can call the hotline 0891- Consultation on 6110123 or 0891-6111111.

Dear Mr. To***,
Thanks very much for your inquiry. Travelling to Tibet from Nepal, you need to apply for Chinese Group Visa in Kathmandu. Firstly, we'll apply for visa invitation letter with copy of your passport. Next, we'll send visa invitation letter to you and our partner in Kathmandu. When you arrive in Kathmandu, you need to meet with our partner and give them your original passport, then they will go to Chinese embassy and apply for Chinese Group Visa for you. When you board plane from Kathmandu to Lhasa, they'll only check your passport and Chinese Group Visa. Apart from Chinese Group Visa, you also need Tibet Permit, we'lll apply for Tibet Permit for you in Lhasa, and our guide will pick you up at Lhasa airport with your permit. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Thanks & Regards
