Wondering if anyone can help. I am going to be going to Tibey with the intent on making it to base camp. i was to be traveling with my brother but due to his lack of funds he cnnot make it as far as i can. So i was wondering if anyone can recommend a tour groups that is not too cheezy. As i would rather not take a tour but i think traveling by my self it is my only option. Thanks
I think you may find some info from the following website.
And if your first stop in China is Chengdu, you can also check with the local travel agents for group tour. Please compare the itinerary and price to select the most suitable one before making decision.
Wish you a pleasant journey!
Depending on how comfortable you are travelling, you may just want to forgo the tour for now and see what you can find when you get to Lhasa. Once there, the major hostels in town all have message boards where you can read/post messages of travellers looking for people to share Landcruisers with. It may take a day or two to find one that your schedule works with, but it may save you money, and having your own driver will permit you more flexibility. I did it that way (not all the way to base camp, but easily could have), and it was pretty simple. You just get a group together, usually 4-5 (or join a group) and talk to the travel agents that will be in the major hostels, and then go from there.
You can check out this site as far as getting to lhasa: 2lhasa.com. Getting to base camp will be less expensive if you arrange the trip with one of the agents in Lhasa.
when will you be going?
I will be in Tibet at the end of August.
