We had a wonderful time in Tibet. We have learned a lot about this unique destination because of the wonderful guide Degyi who is so knowledge and always available towards our tours. We stayed at the Shangri-La Hotel Lhasa, and we would never imagine a Tibet travel could be so nice and amazing without the help of Degyi.

Also, thanks a lot to our Tibetan driver Mr.Wongdun for his safe driving and a good sense of service along the way.

We shall return Tibet in the near future!

How To Get ThereThe transportation in Tibet has changed and been improved a lot especially during the past three decades. Now Tibet can be accessible by plane, train and by bus. The most fast and convenient way is getting Lhasa, Tibet by air. Lhasa's Gonggar Airport has flight links other major cities on the Chinese mainland such as Beijing, Xi'an, Chengdu, Kunming, Guangzhou, Chongqing, Shanghai, and Kathmandu in Nepal. Among all the cities, Chengdu is the most important hub which has the most flights to Lhasa on a daily basis. Most travelers choose Chengdu as their gateway to Lhasa, Tibet. Traveling to Tibet by overland trips is getting popular for these who have a longer and flexible travel plan. There are five highways stretching into Tibet from the Chinese Mainland and Nepal, namely, Sichuan -- Tibet Highway, Yunnan -- Tibet Highway, Qinghai -- Tibet Highway, Xinjiang -- Tibet Highway, and the Sino-Nepal Friendship Highway from Lhasa via the border town Zhangmu/Dram to Kathmandu,Nepal.
