Can I organize a Tibet visa myself? Can I travel alone in Tibet?

As an authorized travel company, Global Holidays Adventure Will organize everything; visa, permit to enter and all other paperwork.

So, what red tape do I need to wade through for a Tibet trip?
The red tape for Tibet trips is a pain, no doubt about that. But, it's a pain that we're very used to dealing with. Just get a photocopy of your passport to us three weeks before your arrival and we can sort out the rest.

When is the best time to visit Tibet?
The Tibetan climate is not as harsh as many people imagine it to be. Tibet's climate is favorable to travel from April to the beginning of November, and most ideal in August and September. However, Lhasa's climate is more clement than the rest of Tibet, and is suitable to travel year-round. The sun radiation in Tibet is extremely strong. It's not for nothing that Lhasa is called the Sunlight City. The months of May, June and September are the primary tourist season in eastern Tibet.

What do you suggest to include in clothing list if we travel to Tibet?
We suggest traveler to include casual attire and layered clothing in their packing list. In the day time you may need just T-shirt or cotton shirt (short and long sleeved). Usually a jacket also, but at night you may need a coat because temperature decreases dramatically. Down coat will be very effective if you wish to go further than Lhasa and Shigatse to the remote areas like the Mount Everest Camp or further to Mt.Kailash. Sun glasses, sun blocking cream and lip protector, moisture cream, warm cotton trousers, thermal underwear (top and bottom), warm woolen hat and gloves , sandals , towel , sleeping bag (for camping/trekking) , rain jacket , camera will be very helpful if you include them in your packing list.

What currency do I have to use in Tibet?
The unit of currency is Chinese Yuan. The Bank of China can exchange all foreign currencies. The banks in Tibet/China are closed on Saturdays and Sundays. Travelers Cheques and credit cards are very difficult to be cashed outside the banks especially outside Lhasa.

Are there ATMs counters in Tibet?
ATM facilities are easily available in Lhasa and Shigatse; however, it may be difficult to find one in other smaller towns or in remote places.

What kinds of vehicles are available for getting around Tibet?
In Lhasa, there are many options for getting around, such as taxis, busses, minibuses, pedicabs and jeeps. There are also cars and bikes for rent. In more remote areas, the road conditions are not very well developed, making traveling by taxi and bus difficult if not impossible. In such cases, minibuses and jeeps are the only option.

How bad is Altitude Sickness in Tibet, and what can I do to avoid, or treat it?
Known as the Roof of the World, Tibet is one of the highest places on earth. Due to Tibet's high altitudes, many visitors from low-altitude areas may suffer from altitude sickness. Most people suffer minor effects of altitude sickness only, which include headache, loss of appetite, and a tendency to have no energy until their bodies adjust to the high terrain. This adjustment can take anywhere from a few hours, and in rare cases, a few days. If visitors do some simple preparations before going to Tibet, most of the symptoms of altitude sickness can be avoided. Being healthy and in good shape before you arrive in Tibet will help greatly. It is also recommended that you talk to your local physician about AMS pills to help combat altitude sickness. Once arriving in Tibet, walk slowly and take deep breaths. Your tour guide will be there to offer help and suggestions

Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Hepatitis B are some of the vaccines advised to all travelers who are planning to visit Tibet. Yellow fever vaccines are recommended for those who are coming from Yellow-fever-infected country like Africa or the Americas otherwise it isn’t required or recommended. But the best would be if you consult your doctor or physician prior planning your tour.

Will there be problems with the language barrier?
Visitors to Tibet do not need to worry about the language barrier at all. Each visitor will have an English-speaking tour guide, and most of the front desk staffs in the big hotels can communicate in English. The main languages used in Tibet are Chinese, Tibetan, English and Nepali. If you are a solo traveler, you will get pretty more people who can speak these languages in Tibet's most popular tourist spots.
