Name 7-day Lhasa to Nepal via EBC

We are a couple of travelers looking to share the cost of a seven day trip from Lhasa to the Nepal border via EBC. We've gotten the quotes we listed under Budget from the travel desk at our hostel in Chengdu; they include the standard stuff that hostel tour desks offer and are for travel by jeep. We could do things cheaper by going by van if that interested others. We can leave a couple of days earlier than the 10th if that suited fellow travelers, but we need to arrive in Lhasa by then and get the seven day clock running due to our visas. The trip we figure we'll take is the standard Lhasa-Gyantse-Shigatse-Shegar-Rongphu-EBC-Zhangmu itinerary that I have been seeing listed everywhere.

We have not yet determined whether we will take the train or fly from Chengdu to Lhasa, as that depends on how quickly we get this organized and can request our permits. Our hostel says that they need five days if we fly and three if we take the train.

We are also thinking about doing the four day trip if we can't get this one put together in time, so feel free to e-mail if you are interested in that.
