Potala Palace

The summer holiday between July and August is the high season of Tibet tour every year. With the increasing of visitors willing to travel to Tibet during the high season, it is more difficult to get the train tickets between Lhasa and other domestic cities. Most tourists prefer to choose the railway transportation to Tibet are attracted by the breathtaking natural scenery along the Qinghai-Tibet Railway, and they believe that the taking the train to Tibet could get adapted to the high altitude gradually. Actually, there is oxygen supply in the cabin when the Tibet trains arrive in Golmud, which means passengers will not have any high altitude sickness problems in the environment with sufficient oxygen content in the air.

In the low/shoulder season, tourists planning to join the Tibet train tours could book the train tickets on the official website of the Ministry of Railways conveniently. But it is pretty difficult to get any berth tickts to Lhasa on the website. Therefore, a large number of domestic tourists would like to search for help from the Tibet tour operators. But not all travel agencies are capable in getting the Tibet train tickets in the high season. It is a better choice to fly to Xining first and book a train ticket between Xining and Lhasa in advance.

Except for the train tickets, the hotels in Tibet are also in extremely large demand in the high season. Tourists who’ve visited Tibet in the high season might have found that the price of the same level hotels are much higher compared to the other periods. To meet the increasing demand of visitors, a series of star standard hotels were constructed and opened in recent years. Generally, the cconomical 3-star hotels are in larger demand compared to the luxury hotels. Therefore, visitors are strongly suggested to book a higher standard hotel in the high season if the economical hotels are out of supply.

Tourists planning a Tibet tour in the high season should also note that the admission tickets of certain scenic spots should be booked in advance. The demand of the admission tickets of Potala Palace is greatly exceeds the supply in the high season. A large number of tourists making a self-help tour visitors could not get the entrance ticket of Potala Palace though the admission office of Potala Palace had opened its official website to sell tickets.
