Lhasa to Kathmandu overland

by Andsma

Does anyone out there know of a cheap way to get from Lhasa in Tibet to Kathmandu in Nepal overland around the end of April 2010?
I`ve searched a lot of travelagents as it seems we have to join a tour to leagally make this journey. But it looks as they all cost a bit to much(around 1000$- 1500$ pr person) for a budget traveler. I found cheaper options (400$-500$), but they all go the wrong way
Sofar i havent found any information on any of them going back for the same price. Does anyone know? Or know of any agencies that have "cheap" offers "the right way" (Lhasa- Kathmandu)?
If you have made this trip yourself I`d really like to hear from you aswell.
This would be the 2nd last leg of our 20 week Asian tour,(the last being from Kathmandu to Mumbai) so would be sad to change plans because of this, it would mean a wery long and expencive detour as we will start and end our tour in Mumbai.

We could fly, but i would really like to travel across the Himalayas on the ground, to se the nature in all its glory. Kind of the point in going there in the first place.

Or would it just be best to forget all about it an consentrate on the southeast and eastern parts of China (HongKong area, Shanghai, Beijing)
If so, is it possible to travel overland from Myanmar(Burma) to India\Bangladesh, i know it is "impossible" the other way round

If you arrange the tour locally in Lhasa you will spend a lot less. The usual package is to spend a couple days around Tibet then exiting to Kathmandu with a stopover at the Everest Base camp. You share it with four other people so that should give you in the $350-500 range.

Hi there - we are looking to do this route in a few weeks and have been researching the best ways to do this.

You say that the best thing to do is arrange a tour to Nepal locally in Lhasa - but how do you get into Lhasa without getting a permit. And how do you get a permit without booking a tour first?!

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks!

Well check with the current regulations first but when I did Tibet all I needed was a travel permit that got issued along with my train ticket to Lhasa. It was the guesthouse I stayed at in Chengdu (Sim's) that arranged the whole thing. Once we arrived in Lhasa we went around the popular guesthouses and looked at the bulletin board postings. Usually you can find posts from travelers looking for companions with the same itinerary on the bulletin boards. Or the travel agency will inform you of people looking for companions. From there we organized everything,cleared the cost with the agent, draw up the contract, etc and off we went.

Travel Tips for Lhasa

Jokhang temple

by extrajoce

This is the most sacred temple of Tibet. I was told all Tibetans must come here before and after leaving the country. It was built in the VIIth century to receive a gold statue of Buddha, a dowry of the chinese Princess Weng Cheng when she arrived in Lhasa to be married with the Tibetan King Songtsen Gampo. At the entrance, many Tibetans pray in a very typical way (see Local Customs tip).

Sera Monastery . Sera means...

by ErnieGal

Sera Monastery . Sera means 'Hailstone' in Tibetan, and legend tells that it hailed during the foundation of this famous monastery. Sear was the last of the three principal Yellow Sect monasteries to be built in Lhasa. Unlike Drepung and Gandan, it was not built in a mountainside, but at the foot of the 'Wudu Hill' to the North of Lhasa city. It was completed in 1419, under the supervision of Shaka Yeshe was an important teacher who travelled to Beijing and as far as Mongolia to preach Buddhism. He was given the title 'The Tutor of the Empire', by the Ming Emperor, Xuan De. Many precious gifts were set to sera by the Chinese Emperors of the time, many of which are well preserved and can be seen at Sera to this day. Sera comprises a great sutra chanting hall, a college and 32 sections. It once housed nearly 10000 monks and is proud of its glorious history during the Ming Dynasty.
Sera has been listed as one of the P.R.C.'s national cultural relic since 1982.

Tibetans are very religious

by mim95

Lhasa is the religious center of Tibet. Many Tibetans would visit Lhasa whenever possible during their lifetime. They follow the various traditional pilgrimage routes in the city. Some of them walk the route, some do a series of rituals which involve the whole body to the ground! They are the most religious people I've ever seen.

You are likely to encounter these devoted pilgrims on the streets around Johkang, which is one of the most popular pilgrimage routes.

Rituals

by Sharrie

Constant turning of prayer tubes - one of the numerous rituals performed by the lay believers.

Long pilgrimages to the temples involving endless kowtowing before the Buddha & prostrating the entire body on the ground constitue some of the wonders of Tibet to the outsiders & strength & character to the Tibetans.

Chinese army

by extrajoce

These members of the Chinese army just happened to come along as we were admiring the Potala Palace. At first, they didn't notice me, so I was able to take a picture of them. The Chinese government have cleared this place in front of the Palace, breaking it from the rest of the city.
