We will be heading to Nepal for a short trip, and flying back home from Kathmandu!

Quite urgent, so appreciate a reply fast!

Sander Hi, Im Sander and have been working for two years in China (im from Europe and 32 years old). Im planning to travel from Xining to Lhasa etc starting around 18 sept. Im quite flexible but have to be back in Shanghai on 5 oct. Im serious looking for travelmates, as this is the only way to have a good trip to Tibet. Please let me know if youre interested. I'm a experienced traveller.

Fenny Hi Sander, thanks for your response! Let me know what you think of the above itinerary. We only have 2 girls now, and are keen to make up a group of 4 so the cost can be kept low (we are on a really tight budget). We are pretty much set on going for the trip, just looking for 2-3 more buddies! We kind of have to keep to the dates 19-28 sep in tibet, and then 3-4 days in nepal, as we gotta get back to work the following monday! We are both from Singapore, moderately experienced travellers but have never been to altitudes higher than 4,000m; I currently work in Hong Kong.

Sander Hi Fenny, Thank you for your reply. I'm very serious in going to Tibet in exactly the same period, although in my preferred itenary I leave by train from Xining (China) to Lhasa. This must be most beautiful and exciting. Would it be possible to combine this in your itenary? In that case I would be very interested. My altitude experience is about 4800m in Peru/Bolivia. Look forward to hearing your reply. Cheers, sander
