Sorry We are Now Closed!

Chinese authorities have closed Tibet to visitors following the 2 recent
Self- immolations  In  Lhasa Tibet's capital.
 It is the start of a major festival that traditionally sees tourists
flock to the Himalayan region which has been under tight security
 since March 2008 due to the protests against Chinese barbaric
 treatment of Tibetans.
Many travel agencies said they were told in May that travellers from
 Overseas would not be allowed into Tibet and said they were
clueless about how long the ban would last.
"The tourism bureau asked us to stop organising foreign groups to Tibet
 in late May.
We don't know when they will lift the ban," an employee at the Tibet China
International Tour Service told AFP.
The festival traditionally sees Buddhist pilgrims flock to Tibet
