Looking for US travel companions to Tibet

by chulsoo Online Now May 22, 2012 at 5:21 AM

We are a group of 2 Americans who were planning a trip to Mt. Kailash, entering Tibet through Lhasa (from Kathmandu). Our trip is for a total duration of 18 days and has been organized by Tibet Highland Expedition fairly inexpensively. Since the rules were changed recently we are looking for atleast 3 more US passport holders who would like to do a similar itinerary with us. We are flexible to change the itinerary and dates a little depending on your interest since being able to go is of primary importance.
Itinerary is as follows:
