Trip Note of Tibet Travel 6 days:

Tibet’s direct international flight is only with Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. Thus, lots of tourists travel Tibet from Kathmandu. If you plan to enter Tibet via Kathmandu, you are supposed to arrive in Kathmandu 2 days before you leave for Tibet. Actually, the purpose of 2 days stays in Kathmandu is to obtain your Chinese visa from the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu.

You utilize your stay in Kathmandu by sightseeing of World Heritage Places of Kathmandu valley. For the information of Chinese Visa click here . Also please contact us for any further information and the Price of Tibet Travel 6 days.
