Ann, it usually takes four days to have a round-trip to Mt. Everest. Many travellers just hire a driver and a car to take them there. It's a long distance from Lhasa. A car can accommodate four passengers. A person needs to pay CNY 1800 to 2000.

However, I have heard that foreigners are not allowed to visit Tibet from Feb. 15. And there is no information when this ban will be cancelled.

May is a good time to visit China. It is warm but not so hot and there is little rain in most places of China.
If you prefer the historical sites, I think Beijing and Xi'an are good choices; if you like the modern sites, then Shanghai is better; if you want to see some beautiful natural scenery, I think you can go to Guilin and Yangshuo; if you want to taste the ethnic customers, Tibet is the best destination...
