How to choose the accommodation in Tibet

Update: Sep. 27th, 2013

Tibet Yamdrok Lake

Most tourists making a Tibet private tour or join the Tibet group tours would choose the star standard hotels when allowed by the objective conditions in Lhasa, Shigatse, Tsedang and Nyingchi. There are few standard hotels in Ngari and some other remote and sparsely populated regions on Tibet Plateau. As a professional Tibet tour operator, Tibet Tour would like to provide information regarding how to choose the accommodation in the rural areas in Tibet for tourists planning to explore the wild nature in Tibet.

Tourists who've been to Tibet would find the price of the hotels in Lhasa is relatively higher than the same level hotels in the other regions in China, especially during the high season of Tibet tour between April and October. Compared to the individual visitors from different corners of the world, Tibet tour operators could get a better price from the hotels. It should be noted that winter is the low season of Tibet tour, and the price of the hotels between November and April of the next year would be much lower compared to the other months. Hence, Tibet Tour always suggests our clients to come to Tibet in the winter season if you really want to cut down the Tibet tour cost.

How to choose the accommodation in Tibet - Guesthouse

The guesthouse with lower price is a very good choice for tourists don't have high demand in accommodation during the Tibet tour. The guesthouses are available in the relatively larger towns and villages even in the remote areas. For tourists planning to join the Tibet trekking tours to Mt. Kailash on Ngari Plateau and Medog in Nyingchi Prefecture, it is very easy to find a guesthouse in the towns and villages between May and October. But most of these guesthouses would be closed in the winter season between November and April. Generally, there is no hot water supply in the guesthouses; visitors could take a shower in the bathhouses in the town seat.

How to choose the accommodation in Tibet - Military Depots & Highway/Railway Maintenance Squads

There is a famous saying in China goes that where there is highway/railway, there is military depots and maintenance squads. Tourists planning a self-driving or self-riding tour along the Tibet highways could choose to stay overnight in the military depots or maintenance squads if there is no guesthouse or hotels. Generally, the maintenance squads are equipped with two lines of bungalows and a small yard. The staffs in the maintenance squads are always kind to visitors and are glad to provide a cup of hot water. Most of the military depots could provide simple oxygen supply equipments for visitors suffering severe high altitude sickness.

How to choose the accommodation in Tibet – Camping in the Wild

It is a good choice to camp in the wild if the weather condition is good for tourists join the Tibet trekking tours. Tourists planning to trek around Namtso Lake could camp by the lake. It must be an impressive experience to enjoy the starry sky by one of the most noted holy lakes in the world. Tourists are strongly suggested to put your safety in the first position while choosing a camping site in the wild.
