When making a tour to Tibet from mainland China, you are not required to obtain a Tibet visa. However, you do need a Tibet travel permit which will be issued by the TTB (Tibet Tourist Bureau) office in mainland China. The tour program and itinerary must be finalized before we apply to the TTB for the permit, and the permit will only be valid for the length of your tour. After completion of your tour you can take a flight back to either mainland China or Kathmandu, or alternatively, you can make the overland journey to Kathmandu via the Friendship Highway.
