We are two 28 year old Belgian guys who are looking at arriving in Lhasa on the 9th of November. I've recently contacted some agencies about hiring a guide for the full 8 days and a 4WD with driver for 5 days. And also arranging all the neccesary permits. I'm still waiting for some replies to see which comes out cheaper. We will look for accommodation at the different destinations ourselves.
We are now looking for 2 extra travel partners to share to costs of the trip. The trip would start 9/11/13 with the first 3 days in Lhasa and after 5 days on the road visiting the relevant monasteries and including Everest base camp for one night and arriving at the Nepalese border on the 16th.
We haven't decided yet if we'll go to Lhasa by plane or train, but we'llbe coming in from Beijing.
If you are looking to be in Tibet around the same period or if you have anymore questions about the itinerary, feel free to ask. I would prefer email.
