So I found out about Budget Tibet Tours from this forum and am planning to visit Tibet through them. I currently live/work in Beijing so will be traveling to Tibet from here. The tour company recommended 2 tours and I'm leaning towards this one: budgettibettour.com/small-group-tour/small-g… (the other one is similar except it goes back to Lhasa). So I figured that I might as well cross the border and spend a few days in Kathmandu.
Has anyone done something similar? Can you provide some tips/suggestions on itinerary? Also transportation into Tibet and out of Nepal back to Beijing? I've read that it's good to fly to Xining, spend a couple days then train to Lhasa, or just fly straight to Lhasa...Has anybody had experience with either?
