The customer is responsible for providing schedule requests prior to acceptance of quote. If a time preference is not made for flights included within program proposals, the schedule will be auto-selected according to the logical order and coordination with surrounding components. The client will be responsible for any cost differences or change fees incurred if schedule preferences are not given until after ticketing is complete.

Excess baggage charges are the sole responsibility of yours. Regulations within China specify that all suitcases must have a locking device attached. Failure to follow this regulation may result in refusal by airport staff to load suitcases onto the aircraft.

Health Issues

Currently, Tibet does not require the tourists from major western countries immunizations. However, it is subject to change at any time.

Please consult a physician before making the trip and TE believe that travelers had been aware of any possible conditions travelling to Tibet. Visitors with respiratory or cardiac problems should avoid such high altitude.
