G Adventures Welcomes Easing of Tibetan Travel Restrictions

15 Apr 2013

Small group adventure tour operator G Adventures has welcomed the relaxation of restrictions for travel to Tibet this year.

Ben Weiher, Director of Global Operations, G Adventures says previous government policies regarding nationalities made it logistically difficult to confirm travellers on Tibetan tours.

“Being able to travel with people from other countries is a big part of the G Adventures’ experience, so we welcome these changes which make it easier for our travellers to experience the beauty of Tibet.”

While there are a number of restrictions still in place, the most pertinent for travellers looking to book trips to Tibet are as follows:

- There is no longer a minimum number of travellers required per nationality within a tour group.

- For trips entering Tibet from China, permits will be granted for tour groups with travellers of three nationalities or less. Tours will not be able to enter Tibet with four or more nationalities of passengers.

- For trips entering Tibet from Nepal, there are no restrictions on the number of nationalities allowed per group.

G Adventures’ High Road to Tibet tour is priced from $2,599pp. Travellers experience the Tibetan cultural capital of Lhasa, witness monks in debate and prayer, explore rural villages and lunar landscapes and hike to Everest Base Camp.
