Nepal borders on Tibet Autonomous Region. Tourists could make a Tibet tour from Kathmandu by air or overland. Make a Tibet tour from Kathmandu by air is much more time-saving compared to enter into Tibet from Kathmandu overland.

The direct flight between Kathmandu and Lhasa is the only international flight in Tibet Autonomous Region. It takes only about 70 minutes to fly to Lhasa from Kathmandu (the capital of Nepal). Tourists could land on Lhasa with a Tibet Travel Permit directly. Some of the tourists could even fly to Kathmandu from their own city and then fly to Lhasa directly.

Overland

Tourists planning a Tibet tour from Kathmandu overland could choose to enter into Tibet through Purang Port or Zham Port.

The buses between Kathmandu and Kodari are available and there are direct buses between Zham Port and Lhasa.Tourists could enter into Tibet through Zham Port via the Sino-Nepal Friendship Bridge. It is pretty convenient to travel to Lhasa from Zham Port since there are long-distance buses between Lhasa and other parts in Tibet.

A certain number of Nepalese and Indians would enter into Tibet through Purang Port, as well as a small number of foreign tourists planning a Tibet tour from Kathmandu overland. Purang Port is not an official entry port of China, certain permits and certifications are required, or entering into Tibet through this port will not be allowed.
