I want to travel to Tibet without a travel agent tour? is this possible? If so how can I arrange a ttb?

0 votes
I can book the flights online from Xian to Lhasa, but I cannot find a way to get the travel permit. One agent said he would get it for us if I get a tour with them in Xian but after arranging tour in Xian, he wanted me to arrange tour in Lhasa as well.
Tours in Lhasa are overpriced and I don't like to be submitted to an itinerary. Is this possible? Any help much appreciated .

No you can't travel on your own. There are regulations on this issue. Non-citizens inChina are not allowed to enter Tibet without a travel agency. And you'll have to get a permit to enter Tibet.
