Best Tibet toursHi there.
I plan on traveling in China next year and I am hoping to travel through Tibet and to Kathmandu... I have read many places that the best way to find a budget tour is to find one while in Bejng. I am also aware that the visa situation can change in Tibet.
I will be alone and I am British - can anyone recommend a budget travel agency to go with? and if in country where to find them?
To save money I will take the train to Lhasa if possible, which I don't think is too frequent (I need to check this) so a tour that has regular departures that I can choose from will probably be helpful incase I miss the departure with the train times.
Any info will be helpful.

2It will be better to contact local travel agencie about a month before your trip so that you will know the exact regulation on permit.
Theses 3 places will be best for taking train in to Tibet from my idea.
Train from Beijing, Chengdu or Xining.
Train from Beijing or Chengdu to Lhasa is about 46-48 hours.
Train from Xining is about 24 hours.
Most of the travel agencies will charge around 200Yuan per person for permit.
Around 200-250Yuan per day for Tour Guide.
Last price depends on Vehicle for the trip or Service fee of the trip.
Accommodation and food and entrance fees it will be cheaper to pay when you get their so that you have option to choose.
If you have further questions please let me know.
