How can I enter Tibet from Kathmandu?

Generally, there are two ways for you to get into Tibet from Nepal:

  • A direct flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa (normally available on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday). The price of the ticket is about $450 US.
  • The overland drive to Tibet, which generally will take 3 days on the road (from Kathmandu to Lhasa.). The overland drive poses a greater risk of getting Altitude sickness due to the extreme increase in elevation along the way.
