Tibet Permit 2013

Today people have spent another peaceful 14th March here in Lhasa, the nation also has named its new president. The series of national congresses starting last year which is believed to make TAR tighten up on the Tibet Permit issuance for 2012 will has its end in few days. The closing of the congresses may indicate loosing of the limitation on number of foreign visitors. Foreigner may be able to visit TAR as single (or perhaps in couple) again. Let's pray for happy news coming soon.

There's no border between Tibet and the surrounding provinces. You can just rent a car with a local driver and go to Tibet. No one would stop you. Most people rent a car from Chengdu and go all the way to Lhasa. The only barrier would be language~~~~

This is purely speculation. No news yet.

And, no you cannot just drive into Tibet. You will be stopped at check points.
