Looking for travel mates for the Mt. Amnye Machen trek  (1 Answer)

Hello everyone!

Does anyone want to join me for the 2 week trekking around Mt. Amnye Machen in Qinghai province in late June this year?
I traveled to that area a couple of years ago, but never done this trek. Due to 2014 is year of a horse, people say that there will be a lot of Tibetan pilgrims doing trek (they call it 'kora') around mountain Amnye Machen.
At the moment I am e-mailing with SnowLion Tours. Their proposed program:

It's expensive for me to do this tour as a solo trek, so I am looking for other travelers to share the costs. I am from Italy, female, 32 years old. I speak English and a bit of Chinese.
Travel agent said that there is one more girl, who wants to do this trek in the end of June, so there are already two of us!
If you're interested in this trek, please contact me: mia.mitchricards at

Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · February 26, 2008

got one question regarding the way from Golmud to Lhasa. That tourist travel permit to get to Lhasa, do i still need it to get into Tibet (was there last May/June and needed it which was a hazzle since i went individual, not on a booked tour).
IF i still need it, how long does it take to apply for it in Golmud, and do i need it to be allowed to buy the Golmud/Lhasa Train ticket there, or to actually get on the train ?

Do you know any way to avoid the permit in case i need it ?

And does anybody know how hard its gonna be getting the train ticket around end of may ?

thanks for your help

Moving on Huatugou -- Charklik (Ruoqiang)

What are the chances of finding a way to move on from Huatugou to Charklik (Ruoqiang) within 1 day? Whether it be 4WD, truck, taxi... whatever kind of vehicle, we don't care.

Has anyone got any contacts for this route? Phone numbers, emails, whatever.

We'll be travelling in early July, and I speak Chinese at a native level.
