Hello there i wonder if you can help me.

I hope to travel from china to nepal overland. I was wondering which would be the easiest option. If i go through tibet will i need a permit, and if so where could i obtain such a permit. furthermore where could i get the nepalese visa. I know you can get them at kathmandu airport if you fly into nepal, but can you get them beforehand in china for the overland journey.

thanks in advance

This is what I found on the US government's website:

Travelers occasionally report immigration difficulties with Chinese authorities when crossing the Nepal-China border over land in either direction. Chinese authorities often require American and other foreign tourists to organize "group" tours through established travel agencies as a pre-requisite for obtaining visas and entry permits into Tibet. U.S. citizens planning to travel to Tibet from Nepal may contact the U.S. Embassy in Kathmandu for current information on the status of the border-crossing points. Travelers may also wish to check with the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Nepal for current regulations on entry into Tibet.

Visit the Embassy of Nepal web site at http://www.nepalembassyusa.org/ for the most current visa information.
