Getting around in Tibet

Getting around in Tibet is pretty straight forward, due to restrictions for overseas visitors using public transport, your whole trip will be done by private car or minibus. The majority of our trips are private with your own guide and driver, we also offer a group trip from Lhasa to Kathmandu in Nepal if you would prefer to travel with like-minded fellow travellers. For more information and tips on travelling through Tibet see the sections below.

Private Transfers

During your Tibet holiday, you’ll usually travel by jeep or minibus. You’ll cover large distances each day and naturally you’ll want to do so as comfortably as possible. That’s why we’ll arrange private transport so that you’ll have your own private driver and guide for the length of your stay. You can stop off wherever you want to take the most beautiful pictures and you can ask your guide any questions you may have. Your guide will speak English very well and will know all about Tibetan life and Tibetan culture.

Travelling with Meaning

There are quite a few top attractions in Lhasa within walking distance from each other, which has the least impact on the environment. There are plenty of taxis in the city and a bicycle taxi is a comfortable alternative when the distances are just a bit too much to walk. We recommend having a map of the city and your hotel’s business card with you when sightseeing.
