Call for Participation for a Tibet Trip
Some of our FG18 attendees consider self-organizing (not through the conference) a week long trip to Tibet right after FG18 (May 20-May 27). The trip will visit top Tibet attractions, including Potala palace, Jokhang temple, Sera monastery, Yamdrok lake, Tashi lunpo monastery, and Mt. Everest base camp. The cost is about $1000 per person, which includes local accommodation, foods, entrance tickets, and transportation. It does not include flight/train to and from Lhasa.
Please note the following:
1) Visiting Tibet by foreigners require permit, which will be handled by a local travel agency
2) Tibet elevation is between 3500-5500 meters. People suffering from altitude sickness are not advised to join the trip
If interested, email to FG18TibetTrip@gmail.com . Depending on the number of people to participate, we will decide if we shall continue or cancel this trip.
