Ex Kathmandu:
Air China operates the only international flight between Lhasa and Kathmandu on Saturdays and Tuesdays in Low season and 4 flights in week from April to June and sometime daily flights from June to September (high seasons). As the tourist season slows in Tibet during winter, the flight remains suspended from November till the end of March. This is approximately one hour long Trans Himalayan flight rewarding you with the views of Mount Everest and other majestic 8 thou sanders. If you choose to fly from Kathmandu, you are required to do your Chinese visa in Kathmandu.

Hong Kong does not have direct flight to Lhasa but its nearest Chinese city-Guagzhou has two flights a week to and out of Lhasa. So, you can first fly to Guagzhou and connect fly to Lhasa.
