Frequently Asked Questions

Is there any age limitation for children to travel in Tibet?

There is no age limitation for people who travel to Tibet. Usually, there's no problem if you take your kids to visit Lhasa, Shigatse, Gyantse, Tesdang, etc. But if you want to travel to Everest Base Camp at the altitude of 5100m, you are suggested not to take any kid below three years old due to the harsh weather, long time driving, and altitude sickness. To be doubly sure, please consult your doctor before going to Tibet.

Instead of having the typical outdoor activities, you can immerse your family into other leisure ways to explore Tibet. Learning Buddhism culture, having a day with a Tibetan family, letting your kids associate with Tibetan kids, experiencing Tangka artwork via a workshop,  and having a simple night out with your kids along the Namtsoside are all good choices.

If your family is fond of outdoor activities, there're many hiking trails around Lhasa and other parts of Tibet. But the level of difficulties of these trails are far more demanding for little kids, and unless your family really likes outdoor activities, these activities may not be the best for your kids.

If you have two kids, We suggest you stay overnight at the House of Shambala, which is a good Tibetan style hotel and a suite with 3 beds. In Shigatse and other remote areas, it’s a little bit hard to find a family suite. You can choose an adjoining room connected by a door.
