I plan on traveling from Kathmandu to Lhasa.
My understanding is that I need to get the Chinese visa in advance but I can get the Tibetan travels permits in Kathmandu. Has anybody had any experience with getting Tibetan travel permits in Kathmandu? Is this still possible or do I need to go through China to Lhasa
I also heard that when I'm applying for my chinese visa, I shouldn't say that I am going to Tibet. Is that also true?
Thanks for your help
