The price we have been quoted for the tour (by Sims Cozy Travel Agency) is 4030RMB per person for a party of 4. We have 3, we just need a nice person to join us!
This price does not include train tickets to Lhasa from Chengdu (a 48hr journey) - these are additional (we hope to get soft sleeper tickets which are 1104RMB. Hard sleeper is around 750RMB).
The price does include accommodation, a Tibetan English speaking guide and Toyota LandCruiser vehicle for the entire trip. It doesn't include entry charges to sights such as monastries and Everest Base Camp. It also doesn't include food and water but does include oxygen!

Day 1 (19th October) - Train to Lhasa departs Chengdu at 6pm
Day 2 (20th October) - On the Train
Day 3 (21st October) - Train arrives in Lhasa at 6pm
