guest22216 Hello,

My name is Sal, I hope you can help me.
I will be traveling with a friend to China in April.

• We will arrive in Shanghai Saturday 26th April.

• We want to fly to Lijiang or Kunming Monday 28th April.

• We want to explore Yunan (Lijiang, Shangri-La..etc) and reach Lhasa Monday May 5th.( 7 days)

• Spend 2 nights in Lhasa and fly to Beijing Wednesday 7th May.

Is this possible? What is the best way to do this?

Kind regards,

GUEST22216 Thanks for the reply Ellyse.

I didn't think about the climatisation.

With the amount of time I have do you recommend an alternative route? maybe skip Kunming and arrive to Lhasa earlier?

GUEST22216 Hi Ellyse,

Thanks for the reply.

I didn't think about climatisation.

Do you recommend I alter my plan?
Maybe skip Kunming and fly to ljiang from Shanghai.
Giving me more time in Lhasa?

Do I need to be with a tour to fly into Lhasa from Shangri-la?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Well, I would probably advise you to just skip Lhasa! You're not going to do it justice in so few days.

GUEST85122 Maybe the time is not suitable for travel to Tibet.

Don't count on visiting Tibet anytime this year. That's my guess.

That information is outdated again. They decided a couple of days ago to reverse that announcement.
