Required Documents for a Trip to Ngari Area

Required Documents for a Trip to Ngari Area

Ngari area, known as the "roof of the roof of the world", was once the core area of two ancient Tibetan kingdoms – "Zhangzhung" Kingdom and "Guge" Kingdom. Among all of the places in Ngari, the holy Mt. Kailash and the holy Lake Manasarovar are reputed as the center of Ngari. It is not only the birthplace of Bonismo (a local Tibetan religion), but is also recognized as "the center of the world" by Tibetan Buddhism and Hinduism. Disciples from different places come here for pilgrimage every year. Countless tourists also come here to have a look at the holy lake and holy mountain and feel the power of devout faith.

If you want to enjoy the beauty of the holy mountain and lake, and follow the disciples to do kora (an activity refers to people turn a hand-hold prayer wheel as they walk) around the lake and the mountain, you need not only perseverance spirit and a strong body, but also need to apply for a series of official documents to guarantee a smooth tour in Ngari area.

Compulsory document - Tibet Travel Permit

Wherever you come from and wherever you go in Tibet, a Tibet Travel Permit is the primarily necessary document, without which you will not be able to take the flight or train to Tibet.

You just need to tell us your needs and we will tailor a satisfactory trip for you. After signing a travel contract with us, you need to send us scanned copies or clear photos of required documents such as your Chinese visa, passports, and other relevant documents.
