I am travelling from Kathmandu to Tibet on the 20th Dec [I may reach Kathmandu earlier]; I am getting some help and advice from a friend in the UK - they have assured me that they would get the cheapest tour package for me, and I really hope they get back to me soon. I am backpacker on a tight budget travelling alone and can't afford to spend 7 days waiting for my Visa/Permit and also I can't afford to pay800 or more to just cross into Tibet.
My plan is to take the train direct to Beijing after that just in time for New Years Eve.
If anybody is travelling in the same direction [i.e. into Tibet] please let me know, maybe we could group togheter and get this group visa and tour at a cheaper cost?
