Holidays in Tibet - Trek to Mount Kailas

ALL our Autumn 2013 and Spring 2014 departures to Tibet can now go ahead

In our May eNews we reported that the Chinese government were lifting their restriction on visiting the Rongbuk and Kharta Valleys below Everest. In the last few days they have further eased restrictions on groups visiting the region once again allowing groups composed of more than one nationality. Previously, everyone in the group had to hold the same nationality passport for the group to be granted a visa which made things quite difficult if for example we had six Brits signed up for one of our trips and someone from Canada wanted to join. The Chinese government have now eased this restriction so that a group may be composed of a mix of up to 4 different nationalities. However it appears that for the moment Norwegian and Japanese passport holders will still have difficulty in being granted visas for Tibet. This latest development means several of our holidays to Tibet in the autumn season whose futures were looking uncertain, will now go ahead.

This Autumn we will be running our 16 day Everest from Tibet discovery tour which makes the journey from Lhasa to Kathmandu across the Himalaya, staying in hotels, visiting major monastery towns and Rongbuk close to Everest Base Camp. We will also be running our 20 day, high passes trek to the stupendous Kangchung Face of Everest and the classic 22 day Lhasa to Kathmandu mountain bike traverse right across the Himalaya to the middle hills of Nepal. There are also still 4 places available on the Mount Kailas Circuit which treks from Simikot in far west Nepal to reach Kailas and drives back to Kathmandu via Everest's north side.

Judging by the response to our recent enews article it seems there are many of you out there ready to head for the 'Roof of the World' - just as soon as you get the all clear.  We will be contacting everyone on the waiting list for any of our Tibet holidays over the next couple of days.

Due to the uncertainty about visas for Tibet, there are still spaces available on all our Tibet holidays this Autumn. However, now that the Chinese have announced the lifting of restrictions don't expect these places to be around for long.  Contact us now to secure your place.
