Tibet is in China’s southwest corner, bordering Nepal, India, Burma, and Bhutan. Tibet’s historical area would make it the tenth-largest country on the planet. Tibet is currently occupied by China and has been split, renamed, and merged into Chinese provinces. When China refers to Tibet, it refers to a portion of historic Tibet known as the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR).
To enter Tibet, you will need to apply for a Tibet Travel Permit (TTP), which is provided by the Tibet Travel Bureau (TTB). We are unable to travel to Tibet without the proper authorization. Your travel agent will apply for the permit, which will take two weeks to complete.
Tibet’s weather is pleasant from April to mid-November, and much better from August to October. Lhasa’s climate is significantly more pleasant than that of other parts of Tibet, making it ideal for year-round travel.
Tibet uses the Chinese Yuan as its currency. Any bank or ATM in China may exchange your dollars, euros, or pounds for Chinese currency. In Tibet, banks are closed on Saturdays and Sundays. So, bring some cash with you before you start your day or trip. ATMs are available in Lhasa, Shigatse, and Gyantse; however, finding one in other small towns in distant areas may be difficult.
