Vancouver to Lhasa, Tibet - $595 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Lhasa, Tibet

Xiamen Airlines has dropped the price of their flights from Vancouver to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, down to $595 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

This is the first time I've ever seen an amazing price to Tibet. These are also the fastest flights from Vancouver to Tibet.

IMPORTANT: In order to travel to Tibet, you need both a Tibet visa (Tibet Entry Permit) and a Chinese visa. You also need to book a guide for your trip. Link with info: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/china/tibet/visas

WARNING: Tibet is usually closed to foreign travelers from sometime in late February to sometime in March. It changes each year. In 2017 it was Feb 20th to March 31st. Definitely contact a travel agency that specializes in Tibet before booking any flights (you'll need to anyways, for the permit and guide).

Given the logistics involved and the fact that they are for January/February travel (average high of 8 to 11C) - I can't imagine there are too many that will take advantage of these, but if you do go, please let me know. I'd love to hear about it.
