An important meeting was held today by the Tibet Tourism Bureau, the Tibet Public Security Bureau and some other relevant authorities. All bosses or managers of tour agents or tour operator in Tibet attended the meeting.
Due to the notorious unrest happened in Lhasa in March, 2008, after that, Tibet is generally closed for the non-Chinese tourists in each March in case any damage took place again. And coincidently, next May comes with an important moment of 60 anniversary of Peace Liberation in Tibet Autonomous Region, in order to prevent unnecessary trouble and to make sure the anniversary goes smoothly, authorities from relevant government departments reached preliminary agreement that they will strengthen cooperation between each other and strengthen control and supervision on the application and approval of Tibet Travel Permit, particularly for those who want to travel to Tibet from March to May.
This tentative agreement will make Tibet travel in 2011 more difficult, particularly for those who want to travel to Tibet in April or May. But this does not mean that it is impossible to travel to Tibet in next April and May, yet based on our years of operation experience, Budget Tibet Tour suggests those who want to travel during this period of time better postpone your Tibet tour to June.

Hello, we are considering to travel in Tibet in summer. We are a family of 5, two adults and three kids, age 13(then), 10, 8. We are interested in the 10 days Mt. EBC & Namtso Lake Group tour. We are US citizens with valid 10-year Chinese multiple entry visa, which we have applied when we went to Beijing in 2019. We are currently living in South Korea.
1. Are kids suitable (or even allowed) for this tour?
2. If kids can join, are there any discount deals for kids?
Dear Ms. Ho***,
Greetings from Helen at Budget Tibet Tour and welcome you to join our 10 days Mt. Everest & Namtso Lake group tour. For your questions: 1. Your kids are suitable for this tour. Travelling in Tibet is as safe for kids as it is for their parents. While the high Tibetan plateau may be the highest place on the planet, very often, the kids that visit this region are more adaptable and have fewer problems than their parents. We also have arranged wonderful Tibet tours for many families with kids such as a tour to EBC for a family with a 3-year-old son, a 9-year-old girl and a 11-year-old boy, they did have fun in Tibet and there is no problem for them. Or you can take some medicine under the guidance of doctor to prevent high altitude before enter Tibet. 2. If kids travel with you, we'll offer some discount for them, please check your email and find more detailed information. Thanks & Regards
