2024 Mt. Kailash Kora Tours

Tashi delek! And Happy New Year!!

Although we are renowned for our spectacular three-week Mt. Kailash pilgrimage trips, many individuals reaching out to us have expressed the desire for shorter itineraries, enabling them to undertake the journey during their two-week vacation.

We are delighted to announce that within the next week, we will unveil three new itineraries that facilitate completing the Kora around Mt. Kailash in a shorter timeframe. This includes a more traditional 12-day option concluding at the Nepal border, with the alternative of finishing in Lhasa within 15 days.

As pioneers of tourism in Tibet, we are also excited to announce the inaugural regular departures to Mt. Kailash with a return to Lhasa featuring the most impressive flight in the Himalayas, all in just a 14-day itinerary.

Proposed dates for Kailash Kora 12 days tour ending in Nepal or 15 days ending in Lhasa:

June 14 (full moon at Mt. Kailash)
July 13 (full moon at Mt. Kailash)
August 11 (full moon at Mt. Kailash)
September 10 (full moon at Mt. Kailash)

12 seats only! The best quality for the best price!!

And remember, we still have 2 departures for our top 19-day itinerary to Mt. Kailash with some spaces left! One starts on May 13 (Saga Dawa Festival), and the other on August 3.

For further details, please reach out to us. Following the Christmas holidays, the influx of requests has surpassed our daily capacity, and it will take a few days to update our website. We sincerely appreciate your support and referrals to friends and family. Your assistance is invaluable to us and truly makes a difference. Thank you! To-che-na!

2023 China Visa Update

We recommend starting the visa process 3 months in advance of your intended entry date to Tibet.

Alternative: Online visa application is available for specific cases (consult us, minimum 2 people, not valid for most trips to Mt. Kailash).

Due to the new regulations governing visa issuance at Chinese consulates worldwide, it is necessary to schedule an online appointment and physically visit the corresponding visa center. Please note that in many cases, appointments are being scheduled for 2-4 weeks later.

Remember that we need 2-4 weeks from the date your visa is issued to process your entry permits to Tibet, so it’s best not to leave the visa process until the last moment.

To travel to Tibet, in addition to the necessary permits to enter Tibet, a Chinese visa is required:

Traveling to Tibet via Nepal: There is still no Kathmandu – Lhasa flight. Entry must be done overland in groups of at least 4 people or by making a stopover in China. The entire group must leave the country together, either on the same flight or by returning to Nepal overland.

Traveling to Tibet via China: The visa must be applied for in the country of origin, providing all the required documentation. Once the visa is obtained, the entry permits to Tibet are processed. Consult us to see if it would be possible to apply online in your case (minimum 2 people).

Tibet awaits you!

Dear friends & partners – Tashi delek!

We’re expecting that borders will be open to international tourists anytime this year. China lifted all pandemic restrictions to enter the country on January 8th (a 48h negative PCR is needed only) and will gradually resume the entry and exit of passengers at land ports too. Tourist VISA still not being issued, hopefully it will change in the following months. At the moment, only China residents are allowed to visit Tibet.

To all our new & old partners; tour operators, travel agencies and tour & expedition leaders around the world: We are ready to welcome you in Lhasa again! Please, contact us anytime to plan the current and 2024 seasons.

We celebrate Losar (Tibetan New Year) on February 21st and all the team will be on holiday for a couple of weeks. We plan to start announcing our group departures in March, including our most requested & highest ranked trips during the Saga Dawa Festival 2023 (bookings open).

Contact us now if you are interested in a particular itinerary but willing to join a group. Remember we can always organize a bespoke tour for you, your family & friends.

Thank you for your support during these terrible 3 years. We start from scratch with more desire than ever.

All our best wishes to you and your families,
The Tibetan Guide Team
