Back in October of 2017, I wanted to visit Tibet. While looking on Wechat articles for some way to get there, I came across Susan Lee, an amazing part of the Tibet Vista team, who helped me ultimately choose the 7-night Lhasa to Everest Base Camp tour, and it was an experience of a lifetime. I'm so glad I took the chance to go. I was teaching English in Beijing at the time, so although my trip from Beijing to Xining, and from there to Lhasa (the main city in Tibet), was likely much shorter than many other travelers coming in from around the world will experience, there were still many documents that everyone needs to prepare before you're allowed to step foot in the area, and Susan helped me with everything. She was very professional, experienced with the process, and answered every question I had. Two thumbs up to her! :) While in Tibet you'll experience bus rides in comfortable chairs viewing pristine lakes, glaciers and plentiful grasslands where yaks roam. Near the monasteries you'll watch monks engage each other with their famous debate routine, you'll see cats relaxing within every temple, comfortably adapted to the altitude, and all along the main city, you'll have opportunities to taste the local cuisine. Try the yak butter tea - it was a bit salty in my opinion, but I found it warmed me right up during the colder nights, it helped a lot. Our tour guide, Norbu, was knowledgeable of the area, spoke English, Mandarin and Tibetan, was very experienced, hospitable and you could just tell he loved the job. The altitude is such that when you reach some of the lower summits for photo-shoots, you'll see clouds *below* you. Be prepared to take warm clothing, hiking boots, and high spf-rated sunblock (being above the clouds means more direct sunburns despite the chilly environment). I also remember having to buy a new pair of sunglasses from a shop during a break one day, the sun can be quite bright up there. One thing I noticed some fellow tour group members complaining about while on the trip, were the small tolls you'd have to pay when visiting the bathrooms. They'd say they shouldn't have to pay to use the toilet, etc. I'd like to point out that Tibet is one of the most remote regions on Earth, it costs quite a bit to build infrastructure in places like that. When you go, just be aware that each time you visit a restroom when the bus stops, there will likely be locals at the doors asking you to pay 1 yuan to enter. One yuan is only worth about 15 cents (as of this review), it isn't a large amount, and please remember it goes directly towards the new infrastructure being built there so that it can one day be on par with what you're used to accessing back home. Altitude sickness is also a thing that happens to some travelers, but rest assured - the Tibet Vista team have you covered. The hotels you'll be staying at are equipped with anti-altitude medication and small portable oxygen tank canisters you can purchase, which help alleviate any dizziness or discomfort you may experience. Finally when you reach the base camp at Everest, there's a picturesque creek off to the side where tourists often gather to stack stones on top of each other for pretty pictures. Elsewhere on the site you'll be able to take amazing pictures and selfies, and also stay there overnight. The beds inside the shelters are super comfortable, and they have plenty of warm blankets, and the locals that host them provide hot beverages throughout the night, and a hot meal in the early morning, they're very hospitable people. The best pictures of Mount Everest are taken at early morning, between 5 and 7 am, when the sunlight shines off the peak and the clouds surrounding it produce this beautiful pinkish hue. Simply amazing, the stories and pictures you can tell your family and friends are worth every penny. P.S. - This trip review is for when I traveled to Tibet in October of 2017, but I unfortunately didn't leave a review back then (this site apparently only allows submitting reviews from a year back at most, it will say "Oct. 2019" below - but I went in 2017, just for clarification). Obviously, back in 2017 there was no Covid-19 virus, so there was no need for temperature checks, hand sanitizers, etc. However, for the sake of the algorithm, I will say "YES" to all the survey questions it will list about Covid-19-related safety below.…

I highly recommend Tibet Visa for anyone looking to explore Tibet The friendly, English speaking staff did an amazing job of helping me plan my trip. Quick response times, articulate answers, and turn-key solutions (for things such as visas, flights, etc) were thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated. Tibet Visa takes the guess work, anxiety, and stress out of planning a trip of this kind. Full disclosure, I didn't actually go on the trip due to COVID, but spent months working on-and-off with staff to plan and then cancel. I say with absolute confidence that the company is trustworthy and are worth your consideration. Don't look any further for your expedition!…

I took this week long trip with my wife in Oct 2019 with no prior experience of such high altitude.We couldn't stop ourselves from experiencing the wonders Tibet had in store for us even though the altitude was tough to adjust to. Food, culture and the entire vibe around was so great. Delicious and fulfilling food. Butter tea & Yak meat is a must have! The positivity that you feel around is mind numbing. All this was made possible by our guide Mr. Daniel. his involvement in everything was incredible starting from explaining the meaning behind the ideologies to spending a fun time with all of us in the group as a fellow traveller himself. If you are travelling Tibet then Tibet Vista is the go to company. Our tour advisor Kristin was patient enough to answer all our queries i.e Itinerary,Visa, stay(hotels were exceptional)...and list goes on. they took pretty good care at the Everest base camp too. it was a smooth and convenient journey from Lhasa to Kathmandu with the company taking all the responsibility to handle the zillion checkpoints we went through. Definitely once in a lifetime trip!…

Well what can I say... this is such a beautiful place to visit - definitely recommend it to everyone! Every Tibetan view was truly breathtaking 😍 I’m still very, very sad that we couldn’t make it to Everest Basecamp (circumstances out of our control in and around China) but perhaps another time in the near future. Our tour guide KonChok really made this tour such a fun and interesting experience. He was extremely knowledgeable and kept us safe during our travels. Thanks again! 🙏…

Had the best Tibet experience! Nothing disappointed me, the place, the people and culture all fascinating! Our guide Pasang was also the best! Unfortunately we couldn’t finish the itinerary due to corona virus and government shutting down places like Everest 😩 so we had to return earlier than expected. Even so the experience was amazing and the agency will refund us the money for the days we missed. Highly recommend the agency and especially our tour guide Pasang! Thanks for all…
