Tibet Tour from Kathmandu Overland – Purang Port

Purang County of Tibet borders on Nepal and India. It is only about 10 kilometers away from the international border of China and Nepal. A large number of foreign pilgrims, businessmen and tourists would like to enter into Tibet through Purang County.

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.

Purang Port faces Khojamath, a mountainous region of Nepal. Tourists planning a Tibet tour from Kathmandu overland have to trek to Purang Port through a path in Himalayas for about two days since the vehicles are not available in the mountainous region. Hence, make a Tibet tour from Kathmandu overland through Purang Port is would be pretty challengeable and difficult.

Overseas tourists could enter into Tibet through Zham Port if you join the tourist group organized by formal Chinese travel agency.
