Nepal to Central Asia overland via Tibet, May 2023

Post by chump_chop »

My partner and I are in Nepal at the moment, had been hoping to get a China Group Visa for the two of us and join onto a Kathmandu-Lhasa overland tour at the start of May, but have just heard that the rules have been changed to enforce a minimum of 4 people to apply for the group visa (who would have to enter/leave the country together).

We were planning to get trains from Lhasa up to Urumqi / Kashgar and then leave via land border to one of Kazakh/Kyrgyz/Tajiki-stan.

Sounds like none of this will be possible now unless we find 2+ other people who want to do exactly the same thing!

Anyone else thinking about this sort of route over the next month or so?

Hello

My partner and I are in exactly the same situation. We have already arranged a tour and were planning to leave on 11 May but we are flexible - we haven’t officially booked anything. We had hoped to leave earlier in May but with visa processing times and upcoming May Chinese public holidays seems 11 - mid May is more realistic. We have exactly the same route planned.

I have sent you a private message with my WhatsApp number.

Thanks

Good morning,

my name is Carlos, a cyclist from Spain.

I am currently in Kathmandu searching how to reach Lhasa, so I can take there a train to mainland China. Not sure about my plan after that, but I would really appreciate if you could give me any information. I have sent you a private message with my contact info.

Thank you in advance :-).

Have a nice day
Carlos

Hi Carlos

I’ve dropped you a WhatsApp message. Happy to try and help - it’s all a bit confusing and there is a lot of misinformation out there (and a lot of Kathmandu based operators making false promises)!

Best

Will
