My girlfriend (28, Scottish) and I (27, American) are planning a trip to Tibet/Nepal with Tibetan Connections (www.tibetanconnections.com/Permits.html) and are looking for additional travellers to join us.
We plan on doing a slightly altered version of Trip 6 (see the above link) and we plan on leaving Xining on November 8th.
Here is the itinerary:
Day 1: Take the train from Xining-Lhasa
Day 2: Arrive in Lhasa in the evening
Day 3: Lhasa (Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Square)
Day 5: Lhasa-Yamdrok Lake-Gyantse (one of the holiest lakes in Tibet)
Day 6: Gyantse-Shigatse (two of the most famous monasteries in Tibet)
Day 7: Shigatse-Sakya Monastery-Everest Base Camp (camp in front of Everest)
Day 8: Everest Base Camp-Old Tingri (drive along the Himalaya to Old Tingri)
Day 9: Old Tingri-Nepal border at Zhangmu (drop off the plateau to Nepal)
We were quoted the following prices for the above itinerary:
2 people: Y5350/per
3 people: Y4110/per
4 people: Y3475/per
The above prices includes hard sleeper train ticket from Xining to Lhasa, guide fees, car, driver, all fuel costs and all necessary permits for travel to and outside of Lhasa.
If anyone is interested, please message me as soon as possible to let me know. Thanks!
