welcome to gotibet.com

Tibet, the roof of the world, is also called the third pole of the world. Due to the high altitude and thin air, this is a piece of pure land that was difficult to reach in the past. At present, however, Tibet has built a comprehensive transportation system of airports, trains, and highways. Every traveler has a chance to see her beauty.

There are mainly two access points to reach Tibet, namely, the mainlands of China and Nepal. From mainland China, you can take flights or trains to Tibet. From Nepal, you can go to Tibet by road or flight. Many travelers may get confused about how to choose the best way to Tibet.

A visit to Tibet is one of the most spectacular journeys you can take, during which you will not only witness the highest mountains in the world, but also meet hospitable local Tibetans who live and breathe Buddhism in their everyday lives.

However, lying on the world’s highest Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, Tibet remains a far-flung destination that requires careful tour preparation.

Here we offer you the best insider tips on how to visit Tibet before you hit the road.

No matter you are a solo traveler, a single woman tourist, or travel with family, the journey to Tibet will be surprisingly safe. The social security in Tibet is quite good and local Tibetans are simple and welcoming to guests from all over the world.

The only thing that threatens your safety is altitude sickness. Travelers with high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, coronary heart disease, severe asthma, lung disease, and untreated cold are not able to visit Tibet.

It is advised to have a good rest after arriving in Lhasa so that your body can get used to the high altitude. You can also take medicine and oxygen to reduce the discomfort of altitude sickness.

You need Tibet Travel Permit, a Chinese Visa, and your valid passport to visit Tibet. Without any of these, you can even not board the flight or the train to Tibet. You can easily get a Chinese visa in your county. But the Tibet Travel Permit can be only applied through a licensed local Travel agency with a pre-booked Tibet tour package.
