It is also the heart of Tibet adjoining Lhasa, Nyingchi and Shigatse to the south and Ngari to the west. Profiting from its abundant natural beauty, Nakchu has been one of the most attractive tourist regions on the roof of the world. Attraction Intro: Nakchu

1.A friend will be flying from San Francisco to Lhasa Tibet in May. How does my friend obtain the Travel permit for visiting there? My friend will have only brief stopovers between flights, and wishes to spend the short available vacation time to see Mt. Everest (but not to climb it.)
2. Any advice about how to travel from Lhasa to Mt. Everest?

3.What would the average cost be to hire a driver & a vehicle versus bus travel, if available?

4. Would it be better to travel there and back again via train? If so, how to find out costs, schedules, etc & make reservations?

i think the best way is to find a decent travel agent to handle the travel permit for you. There is no regular bus from Lhasa to Mt Everest. People can only go there by driver their own car, rent a vehile, share car with others or take part in a package tour. It seems you should pay 1600RMB for round trip between Lhasa and Mt Everest, 600km for single trip. You can find such a vehicle in Lhasa. There is no train to Mt everst.
