Is it easy to get a permit to Tibet?
How can I arrange that? I'm going from Chengdu to Lhasa (we don't know yet if we are going by plane or by train).
Does anyone has the expirience? And also if you are in Lhasa is it easy to arrange tours from Lhasa to katmandu?
How expensive will that be? We are low-budget travellers.
Thanks for the information,
Is there nobody around this site who has experience with travelling around Chengdu to Lhasa?
I am going from Chengdu to lhasa on the train in the middle of March 2007. I have arranged my tibet permit and fingers crossed train tickets through sims cosy guesthouse in chengdu over the internet. The only problem is that train tickets are scarce as it is around chinese new year and the railway is brand new. They can sort out flights for you as well if you like.
Alternatively try the mix hostel in chengdu - i think they offer the same services.
Hope this helps,
