Tips for Kathmandu Tour from Tibet – Nepal Visa

Tourists planning a Kathmandu tour from Tibet could apply for the Nepal Visa from the Nepal Embassy in Beijing if you are willing to spend some time in Beijing before heading to Tibet. The application process is very simple, the applicants only need to prepare your photos, passport and fill the application form. Generally, tourists could get the Nepal Visa in three work days. The Nepal Embassy in Beijing used to receive the application in the morning and release the visa in the afternoon.

It would also be a good choice to apply for the Nepal Visa from the Nepal Embassy in Lhasa. The necessary documents and application fee are the same with those required in Beijing. Generally, tourists could get the Nepal Visa in the next afternoon if you submit your application documents in the morning between Monday and Thursday. The Nepal Embassy in Lhasa is quite close to Norbu Lingka. Tourists are strongly suggested to pay a visit to the embassy and submit your documents once you arrive in Lhasa since there are many applicants there in the peak season.

Generally, Tibet Tour would arrange our clients to spend one night at Zhangmu Port before heading to Kathmandu. Zhangmu is a small border town with complete living and service facilities. There are many guesthouses in the town seat and the 2-star Zhangmu Hotel is the local best hotel. The hotel provides currency exchange service for tourists. Actually, tourists are sincerely suggested to exchange some Nepal rupee in advance.

After go through the relevant formalities at China Customs office, tourists making a Kathmandu tour from Tibet have to say goodbye to your Tibetan guide. Tourists will enter into Nepal after crossing the Friendship Bridge. Relevant inbound formalities are also necessary at the Nepal Customs office. There is a 4.25 hours time difference between China and Nepal. Generally, there are vehicles waiting in front of the Customs office. Tibet Tour could also help our clients to arrange a private vehicle and guide to pick you up at the Nepal border.

Tips for Kathmandu Tour from Tibet – Transportation to Kathmandu

It takes about 5 hours driving to get to the downtown of Kathmandu from the Nepal border. It should be noted that the road condition in Nepal would be pretty poor in its rainy season. Hence, Tibet Tour would always arrange our clients with a SUV so as to cope with the possible bad road condition. For individual tourists willing to cut down the transportation cost, it would be a better choice to share a taxi with other passengers. Tourists could always get a good price if you are good at bargaining with the drivers.

There are different levels of hotels in Thamel District in Kathmandu. Tourists could choose the hotel in Kathmandu according to your own preference. The price of the hotel is relatively cheaper than that in Tibet. For tourists have a relatively longer vacation, it is a good choice to pay a visit to Chitwan, Nagarkot, Pokhara and some other famous tourism destinations in Nepal.
