Visa Requirements

Besides getting a 'L' Category Chinese Visa to enter China, do I wait until I get to Chengdu or Kathmandu to obtain the TTB permit and group visa from a Travel Agency there? Do I have to be on a tour in order to go around Tibet? I'm a bit confused..... I just want to be able to travel around Tibet without joining a tour.

Read …typepad.com/life_on_the_tibetan_plate/2007/… for permit information. The situation for entering from Nepal vs entering from mainland China is different.
