FAQs about China

  • When is the best time to travel to China?

    The best times to visit China are in the Spring, which falls between April – May and then in the Autumn, which is between September – October. This is when the weather is much more comfortable for tourists to explore.

  • Are the meals all local cuisine or are there any western meals and do they cater for vegetarians?

    As our tour focuses on unique and authentic experiences restaurants are hand-picked to ensure quality and authentic traditional dishes. Vegetarians and vegans are well catered for as we make sure all dietary requirements are sent over to the guides prior to departure.

  • Is there a lot of walking involved on our China tours?

    We grade our tours on level of activity and amount of walking involved, which can be found on the tour pages on the website and in our brochures, under ‘Physical Rating’. We grade the tours as follows:

    Level 1 – A reasonable level of fitness is required, but its more about spending time on your feet rather than covering large distances.

    Level 2 – This will involve a little more time on your feet than level 1 tours and may involve a bit more walking or steps.

    Level 3 – A good level of fitness is required, as around 2-3 hours of walking will be required per day. Other activities such as cycling, may be included and walking longer distances.

    Level 4 – Level 4 is similar to level 3 but the activities may be of longer duration or a more challenging terrain.

    Level 5 – You’ll need to be fit and adventurous to participate in these tours as in some cases you will be active for most of the day on tough terrain or have physically demanding activities.

  • Do we have time for shopping on tours?

    Most of our tours include time for shopping whether it be in a local market or Bazaar, or with a visit to a shopping mall. This will be explained in the tour dossier, or by the local guide in resort. However, if this is something that you would like to include in your tour, please speak to one of our experts before travelling.


Around 600 kilometres from Lhasa set amongst some of the world’s most starkly beautiful and extreme landscapes is the mighty Mount Everest. Towering to 8,848 metres above sea level, the earth’s highest mountain is an once-in-a-lifetime sight, and there is no better place to view it than base camp. Located under the gaze of its north face, on the Tibet side, the sweeping views of Everest and its massif are unsurpassed. Visit the monks at Rongbuk Monastary before following the gravel track to base camp itself, where you’ll find unobstructed views, nomad tents and the world’s highest post office.
