G Adventures excited to open the door to Tibet for diverse travel groups

July 9, 2014 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

G Adventures, the world’s largest adventure tour company, is excited to invite all travellers, including those from Australian and New Zealand, to join all group trips to Tibet after the Chinese government announced travel permits to the country would no longer have nationality constraints.

G Adventures has been taking travellers to Tibet for over five years, but up until recently, Chinese Government laws permitted only a maximum of three nationalities on each trip. Updated laws mean all travellers are now welcome to immediately choose from and book without any restriction a range of G Adventures trips, regardless of the nationality of fellow travellers who will share in their journey.

Belinda Ward, Duchess of Delegation for G Adventures Australia and New Zealand is excited to offer a more diverse group of travellers the opportunity to explore the fascinating country.

“In the past, we have sometimes had to disappoint travellers who were eager to visit Tibet because we were unable to obtain a permit for them due to there already being travellers of three other nationalities booked on the trip,” she said. “For instance if an Australian traveller expressed an interest in joining a particular trip to Tibet, but travellers holding British, Canadian and Japanese passports had booked ahead of them, we would have to encourage them to look at another departure date.”

“The beauty of G Adventures trips is you are surrounded by like-minded travellers from all over the world, and we are thrilled to now be able to offer this same experience in Tibet.”

G Adventures offers several itineraries to Tibet which travellers of any combination of nationalities can now choose from. All trips are guaranteed to depart. Itineraries include:

  • Tibet Adventure – Travellers can visit incredible monuments and palaces, explore the bustle of Beijing and hike the Great Wall in China before riding the Trans Tibetan Railway to Tibet to experience monk debates in Sera Monastery and travelling on to Kathmandu in this trip that encompasses three countries. Trips from $2699*
  • High Road to Tibet – Travellers can experience the Tibetan cultural capital of Lhasa, witness monks in prayer, explore rural villages and lunar landscapes and hike to Everest Base Camp. Trips from $2899
  • China, Yangtze and Tibet Explorer – Explore Tibet as part of a larger adventure around the region where travellers can ponder Tibetan spirituality in Buddhist temples and monasteries and gain more cultural insight with an expert guide. Trips from $3999
