Just wondering if anyone's every travelled to Tibet. I will be in Nepal in the Fall. After a month there I will be heading to Thailand but I would like to spend some time in Tibet first. I'm a female and will be traveling solo. If anyone can offer me advice and offer some information as to what I should expect it would be appreciated. I am also wondering how difficult it will be to enter Tibet. I've read online it may be difficult entering from Nepal as a solo traveler. Not sure why this would be the case.

Hello NYGal,

have been planning to visit Tibet since last May..but couldn't make it. However sincethen i have been collecting all information from Chinese and people who have travelled there.It is likely that i might visit there in Oct this year.

From Nepal, you can go to Tibet even as a solo.You need to appraoch some authorized agency in Kathmandu who will get you a speacial (tibetian) visa and will list you as one of the members of a group.The group will travel to tibet but in Tibet you can be on your own--not necessary to follow the group.
Never apply for Chinese visa (and show that you are visiting Tibet)in Chnese embassy in your home country as your application for visa will be rejected.You will get Tibetian visa only in Kathamndu if you are taking Nepal route.

Another route to tibet would be thru main land China.

Hi Everyone,

I just like to post a few questions about Tibet. Which is the shortest journey to Tibet from China and how long does it takes? Is it Beijing or Shanghai? Is there any electrical supply in Tibet for charging mobiles or camcorders? Thank you.
