Tourists planning to join the Tibet festival tours should note that the number of visitors in Tibet tops during the celebration of the annual Shoton Festival and Nagqu Horse Racing Festival in the summer season. The demand of hotels, vehicles, guides and admission tickets for the scenic spots largely exceeds the supply in this season. Therefore the tour budget should be relatively higher compared to the other seasons.

In addition, the celebration of most of the Tibetan festivals has close relation to Tibetan Buddhism. Tourists planning to take part in the celebration of these festivals are strongly suggested some information related to the customs and taboos in Tibetan Buddhism. It is impolite to behave incorrectly in the monasteries with religious lamas and pilgrims.
