With everything that has started kicking off in Tibet, does anyone have any idea how far the harsh tourist laws are going? Are they starting to spread into Nepal or even Northern India.
Or is the general unrest causing some security problems around here or any other countries?

Anyone been there recently?

Hello there,

Yeah at present lots of protest going on in Tibet because of against the chinese rules and regulations and still as we are special agent for tibet, we have got some latest news and the chinese administration not going to open for any foreigners who wish to travel to Tibet.

But harsh tourist laws in other countries are pretty much but l they have been control by the government of the countries either in Nepal or India. So, if you wish to travel Nepal instead of Tibet you may travel with comfortable ways no problem..
cheers

Yes I have been there recently, was there on March 14th, in Lhasa.

Depends on what sort of tourist you are?

Heading into Tibet might be an issue for you, not possible from Nepal as the Chinese have stopped issuing Tibet Permits, so that border entry is closed to tourists! The Chinese are taking this seriously, no photos of anything sensitive. Including any Chinese Soldier in Tibet... which is a bit strange as they don't mind in Beijing.. hmmm (sarcasim). Or anything vaguly military or government like, but then you can always Google earth those building (sorry sarcasim again). So watch yourself there. We saw the military target tourists for there camera's in Lhasa at one stage during the riots.

I wouldn't go to Everest Base camp for a while either, Chinese have asked Nepal to not allow any climbers until the torch go's through.

Tibetans were as friendly as ever to me, can't say anything bad. Unless I was Chinese in a Tibetan Riot.

Nepal has protests all the time, and they have actually quite a different atmosphere. Generally as a tourist you will be fine there during a protest, that is so long as you are sensible.

India, game on. Anything goes.
