Everyoen has a Himalayan dream in a lifetime. Tibet located on the third pole of the world is in Himalayan ranges as well as Nepal. If you plan to travel to Everest Base Camp, you need to enter Tibet from Singapore first, then start your Mt.Everest journey.




First, you need to get your Tibet Travel Permits to enter Tibet. Due to Tibet's unique background, all foreign tourists allowed to enter Tibet must have Tibet Travel Permits. As a Singaporean, you dont need a Chinese visa to enter China city for 15 days. So you can use your passport copy to get your Tibet Travel Permits from a travel agency in Lhasa. To get your Tibet Travel Permits, you need to plan a Tibet tour at least 30 days in advance, so that the travel agency can get it for you within 12-working days.

For flights, there is no direct international flight from Singapore to Tibet, you need to fly to a China city like Chengdu, Chongqing, Guangzhou etc, then transfer to Lhasa by train or flights.
