Hi there Ness I am going to Tibet in October. You cant just go there - you need a permit and you have to be part of an organized tour. You cannot go there as an individual like the rest of China. I am assuming you were aware fo that. There are plenty of agencies that do tours

Hi Ness! Tibet is a very complicated area in China. The government does not allow the foreign tourists to visit Tibet on their own. The Tibet permit is reqeusted when you board on the flight enter into Lhasa or train. And you couldn't leave every day as free time, you have to arranged the everything inlcuding the permit from an agency in China.
