Nancy Hey there, I am also planning a trip to Tibet this summer, but maybe it's a bit earlier than your date. I want to fly into China on 1st August, then directly head to Tibet after 2 days preparation. Is it possible for you to change your plan? I have to leave China before 25th August.

Msi @Nancy - my friend and I are planning a trip to China around the same time, altho thinking of going to Tibet near end of trip as we fly out of HK on 8/25 and will go there after Tibet. Have you settled your plans yet? Not sure which is better snowlion or windhorse.

inthesky729 Wow, sounds like a cool trip Jess. Definitely matches my own itinerary...I'm looking at getting into Nepal around the start of October, spending a couple of weeks there, mainly on the Annapurna Sanctuary trek, then zig-zagging my way across India for two months. Any particular parts of India you're keen to hit?
Jessica_Alice
Jessica_Alice Cool! I got sick on the Annapurna last time but was great still! No particular parts of India, although I definately want to go to Goa, just so I can say I've been to one of those crazy psychedelic beach parties :)

Jessica_Alice Hey! I am looking to be Tibet around this time (although no flights or concrete plans have been made yet). I am not so sure if you can only get through Tibet via China? My plan was India & Tibet - I have been to Nepal before so may not go there again. Let me know if you are still looking for folks to travel with :) Jess Either of the tours you posted would suit though

inthesky729 Hi Jessica! You can get into Tibet via China, but you require the appropriate permits, which have to be obtained through a tour group/guide. What kind of itinerary were you looking at? If you don't want to go in through China, then you can go reach Lhasa overland from Nepal, or fly in from elsewhere, but again, you require the permit. My plan is to head into India also, after doing a little bit of trekking in Nepal.

Todd Hey Jessica, the 'talk' forum is a bit confusing, but we're working on it. I think what happened is that you posted a comment under 'General Talk' on the 'talk' page. Whereas, if you want to comment on someone's post on a Trip, you must do it on the trip page. We structured it that way so people would have to visit a trip before asking questions about it on the 'talk' page. :)
