Please do not have a solo trip!In tibet,The environment is not like current places at all,Human who is not the ordinary people in Tibet may meet dangerous all the time!So,more one,more safe!I think that is why the China government do not permit the independent travel in Tibet.If you want to go,you'd better think all over at first,and get the cell phone,keep the battery in power all the time,and take GPS set if you wish(That always be more better.)
So, why not stay at comfortable home or the metropolis? LoL

|I'm facing this problem right now. I've already joined a 16D package tour, and would like to extend my stay in Lhasa for anoher 10 days. However, the Tibetian agency insist independent tour is not allowed, and is now insisting me to take up another package in order to extend my stay in Lhasa. To make matter worse, the package is way out of my budget as it is already costing me dearly for the 16D package... yet i heard so many stories of independent travel in Tibet. AT a lost now....|

|it is not dangerous in Lhasa, it seems to be a ploy by greedy travel agents to frighten people into only using agencies and milking foreigners of money..|
i am a 33 yo female and i recently travelled to Lhasa (ON MY OWN) with a permit from a chinese travel agency into Lhasa via Chengdu.(MONEY TALKS) I must admit, they tried to bully and scare me out of Lhasa once the 7 days were up... but i stayed there for 2 months on my own....
it was interesting to watch travel into Tibet being abused by some chinese travel agents..
such a pity..... this HOLY LAND is amazing ~ like no where else on earth

|Contact places like Sam's Guesthouse in Chengdu. Or any of the other Hostels that offer Tour Services. they know what's going on and they know the needs of independent travelers.|
You can google and write them, but they are certainly up to speed on permits to Tibet
All the best and have a good trip
