Most importantly, all travellers travelling in TIBET are kindly requested to bear in mind that TIBET being extremely remote and isolated by the most formidable Himalayan ranges, remains still one of the most captivating but least developed parts in the world. With its very short history of tourism (just about 8 years), the facilities for tourists although being upgraded are still at basic and limited scale. So, the visitors are requested not to have high expectation in terms of facilities in TIBET. However, we will always put all our effort to make your journey as pleasant as possible.
Besides, the road between TIBET & NEPAL is not up to the standard. It is rough, bumpy and full of bends. Particularly, during monsoon (June - August), it can be temporarily obstructed by landslides and erosion. So, a bit sporty wears and shoes are much advised facilitation the travellers to walk over the landslides (specially in the NEPAL portion)
