Lahasa and Everest BC !

by lahoree

I am planning for a trip to Lahasa and Everest Base Camp during April 09 and looking for travel mate for us to share the costs that are prohibitively expensive for a single travller. If interested, please drop me an email.

I would also like to know train and plane fare between Lahasa and Changdu/Beiging.

Thanks in advance

You can check http://www.elong.net/ for flight information. Prices are sometime discounted as the departed date gets closer. Enter different dates of you flights to see what I mean.

Some of the backpacker places like the kery hotel offer trips to EBC and other areas. You do not have to stay at the hotel to take the trips. I was in Tibet back in 2006, I'm not sure how things are now.

Re: Lahasa and Everest BC !

Am I right in saying that if you get the train to Lhasa from Beijing, it doesn't stop anywhere that you can get out to break up your trip? How many hours is it please?

Do you need a permit for Tibet if you are an independent traveller? Where do you get these in Beijing? Where can you travel as an indepedent traveller in Tibet? Which cities?

And where do you buy the train tickets? Ellyse mentioned that there is a lot of paperwork to fill out...does anyone know how long you have to wait for the permit? And can you get it for a friend (saves them the time waiting in Beijing for it?!)

Thanks for any answers you can help with me!

Sugarpuff.

I did a lot of research and my conclusion was never ending "if and but". As I am short of time, therefore I declined Lhasa/Everest. It's not logical that you spend a lot of money and then while you are close to Everest, some one asks you to return just because there is a deficiency in the last (~10th)permit.

Next month I will go to Nepal and will hop on an Everest Safari.

Travel Tips for Lhasa

BULLETINBOARDS/CORKBOARDS

by mavl

if you're looking for things to do and/or people to do them with while in lhasa, check out the bulletinboards/corkboards at the lobby of hotels and guesthouses - these will almost always contain posted notes from other travelers looking for companions to complete a tour group (which will inevitably make the tour cheaper for them and you if you join).

they will also contain tour offers from local tour companies and guides - the informal kind anyway.

they may even contain notices of items for sale such as used backpacks, hiking boots, etc.

whatever the case, these boards are worth checking out. it's a good way of getting info that might turn out to be valuable.

the board in the photo is from the lobby of snowlands hotel, just a few establishments down from the barkhor along mentsikhang lam road. it may also contain a lot of funny stuff! i remember one note looking for a left hiking sandal, size 9 - just the left! hope for the guy's sake that he found it!

The Norbulingka Park ....

by ErnieGal

The Norbulingka Park . Norbulingka, or 'Jewelled Garden', was the site of the Dalai Lamas' summer palace. From the mid 18th century, each successive Dalai Lama moved to the park during the summer season, and carried out all their religious and political affairs from there. The site of the Norbulingka was originally chosen for its banks were shaded by many willow trees, in the 1750's the 7th Dalai Lama spent much time in the peacefulness of this area, studying Buddhist texts. It was during his lifetime that the tradition of a 'Summer Retreat' began. The park was considerably extended during the reign of the 13th Dalai Lama (1876-1933) and many more buildings were erected. In 1954, the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, built the 'New Palace', consisting of two major halls, richly decorated with murals. The murals depict many religious legends and historical stories, such as the marriage between the Chinese Princess Wen Cheng and the Tibetan King Songtsan Gampo in the 7th century. The 14th Dalai Lama's living quarters are also found in the 'New Palace', and many of his personal possessions, as well as gifts presented to him by the Central People's Government in 1956, are on display in the reception room. In the past 38 years the Norbulingka has been opened as a public park, an is frequently used as a place for picnicing, relaxing an for entertainment.

Prayer flags and Mani stones...

by titti

Prayer flags and Mani stones On the top of each pass there are rows of small, colourful, printed pieces of cloth: prayer flags. They flutter in the strong wind sending prayers directly to heaven. Each colour symbolises an element from which Tibetans still believe that everything was made: earth, air, fire, water and iron. Mani stones “grow” all around. Stones engraved with mantras, like Om mani padme hum, are piled up to form walls in every kind of sacred place. Due to the rarefied atmosphere, physical and emotional, strange mixed feelings will possess you, even if you don’t believe in mysticism. Don’t try to resist; let your soul free to pile new Mani stones up and send your prayers wherever they will address themselves.

Medication

by Sharrie

Layered clothing since the day & night temperature differs quite a great deal. Also, at certain time of the year, esp. during season changes, most hotels do not have their heater on! So, thermal is a necessity if you want to sleep well.

In addition, hot water supply is restricted to only certain time of the day. Take note of this. Do bring your own medication for headaches & altitude sickness. Alternatively, you might want to get these capsules of liquid (made from natural herbs as per claimed by the Chinese) from your hotel. It's v. effective & you must take them as soon as you arrived. Cost = RMB 20 - 30 depending on where you get them.

Drepung - the kitchens

by grets

The kitchen in Drepung monastery is absolutely amazing. All the walls are lined with pots, pans and kettles, and cooking was carried out in enormous vats. Stirring was done with a spade! The kitchen could feed up to 15,000 monks at any one time. I shouldn’t think it would have been a three course gourmet meal!
