    Hi Lobsang,

    Great website, it’s been very helpful for trip planning, as I plan on heading to Qinghai Amdo, and Sichuan Kham this summer. To the best of your knowledge, is it currently possible to extend a visa in Yushu and/or in Ganzi? Thanks for your help!

    Hi about 2months ago we made enquiries to join you on a tour in Lhasa to Kathmandu. Of course the terrible earthquake changed our trave thinking. Can you please tell me if the tours are still possible for the date 7th October to visit Lhasa and return to Kathmandu. Is the border between Nepal/Tibet likely to be opened soon. If we remain in Tibet for longer and return to Nepal later. Which tour can you recommend to see more of the country or is it possible once in that we may travel alone. We could spend 2/3weeks in Tibet instead of returning to Nepal. Do you know if we could fly to Bhutan from Lhasa. Thank you for your help and please include costs of the tours for 2 persons

    We are 3 ladies and have no trekking experience, that´s why we need a very easy trek.
    We understand that Sham Valley is a very nice and easy trekking.
    Please kindly send us the itinerary of easy/baby trekking and cost.

    Can you please help me to find a good and honest travel agency? I already have been in contact with 4 different travel agency but don’t feel very good about it. I just don’t know why.
    Thank you.

    Hi Lobsang-
    I’ve sent a query to your email about Kham and Amdo, but I’m not sure if you’ve gotten it!

    What a beautifull website!
    We will fly 24 of may from Kathmandu to Chengdu and would like to explore the Amdo and Kham region for hikes/nature/culture.
    Which places can we visit without a special permit? We will have (hopefully) a china visa, but no tibet-permit. The travel agency in Kathmandu told us that these months the amdo and kham are closed for tourists, do you know something about that?

    Hope to hear from you,

    Kind regards

    I was just wondering if anyone could provide any information on the restriction of travel for foreigners in Aba? There seems to be two towns of Aba in Sichuan, but I am unsure which is restricted for foreigners! I am wanting to travel to Yyenbo Yurtse/Juizhi, through Aba, through Hongyuan, through Zoige up to Langmusi. It would seem a giant pain in the ass that Yyenbo Yurtse/Juizhi is only accessible from the west. Does anyone know if this is possible? Thank you.

      Hi Carl…right now all areas of Aba/Ngawa prefecture are open. The one region that can close is Aba county, not to be confused by the prefecture of the same name. Aba county, due to uprisings at Kirti Monastery, has been closed off and on for the past few years. You can pass thru Aba to Jiuzhi/Jigdril without problems.
