Tibet Permit 2016
Notice: all foreign travellers mustn’t stay in any part of Tibet from 18 ~23 Jun 2016!
Kyirong Port is 100% confirmed to be opened to foreign travellers since Jun 2016. But Kyirong is of a lesser location comparing with Zhangmu Port – it is further away from Lhasa, and further away from Kathmandu as well, meaning you will spend much more time on the road. From Kyirong to Kathmandu is abt 8~9hrs of driving (Zhangmu was of 4hrs). and because the road condition isn’t ideal, you can only use 4WD, of which has 6 seats in total. 1 for driver, so 5 passengers tops.
Zhangmu Port is confirmed to be closed for now.
