Things to know before making Tibet travel plan and the contacting your service provider

It’s very important for you to know the little bit about the different tour options, your interest and the place you might want to visit. It is highly advisable for all to read about the Tibet as much possible.

With having little knowledge about Tibet, you can contact your service provider. Many websites and tour agencies offer different Tibet tour packages. But you must, at least, contact the Tibet travel agencies a month before your actual date of the tour. This gives you enough day for them to learn about your plan and interests. Which is very important for them to know to make you the most suitable tour itinerary. Many travel website offers lots of pre-made tour itineraries which are popular for them. But almost everyone will make the special tour itinerary for you.

Your Tibet travel service provider needs at least 10 to 15 days to process your travel permits and arranging your services like car and hotel. They are many, who claims to be a good travel agency and base in Lhasa.
