Ngari Permits Application in 2014

Update: May 5th, 2014


2014 is the famous Horse Year of Tibetan calendar. It plays very important significance for local Tibetans and other devout Buddhist pilgrims from all over the world. According to traditional customs of Buddhists, they will all gather together around Mt. Kailash and Lake Manasarovar in Ngari Prefecture. Some of them may start this plan since last year, or ever earlier, some of them crawl along the way here. Meanwhile, many grand religious ceremonies will be held as well as other celebrations.

We know that, it is expected by many tourist from home and abroad. But unfortunately, Ngari Permit is hard to get since April 28th, 2014. Chinese people have to apply it in which their registered permanent residence is with their ID card, itinerary and other necessary documents. The process may change to be very complicated and it is hard to get. On the other hand, it is closed to foreign tourists.

What kind of Ngari Permit

We speculate that Ngari may be opened again to foreigners in November. If you would like to be updated for free, please feel free to contact
