First Time Trip to Tibet

When to Go

A lot will depend on what you want to see and what kind of weather you can tolerate. Generally, the comfortable seasons for most of the major tourist attractions, like Namtso Lake, Mt. Everest camp and Mt.Kailash are in summer (June to August) and in fall (from September to October). The landscape of the plateau is colorful and the weather is pleasant. Winter and spring (November to next April) are the perfect seasons to visit Lhasa city and its surroundings such as Shigatse, with the temperature staying at around 10°C to -8°C. The visibility in the air is high and the attractions are least touristy. Besides, you can benefit from the year-low flight fare and discounted hotels.

How Long to Stay

Knowing what you expect to see or do in Tibet will help determine how long you should stay. We recommend at least 4 days for visiting the essential attractions of Lhasa ­. If you are interested in experiencing more out of Lhasa, like holy lakes, glaciers, majesty Mt. Everest or Kailash, admiring stunning landscapes, or visiting a Tibetan family, you will need 6-15 days or even more time. More tours are available on our website depending on your schedule.

When you first go to the Tibetan plateau, do not exercise vigorously, do not overeat, and preferably do not drink and smoke; but have more vegetables, fruits and other vitamin-rich substances, drink plenty of water, and prevent yourself from catching a cold. It is recommended to travel to Tibet by train to better adapt to the high altitude environment.

The cost of your Tibet trip depends on several factors. Firstly, your travel time. The cost in peak tourist season (July to August)is highest, followed by shoulder season(Apri to June and Sep to Oct), and off-season(Nov to March) is the cheapest. Secondly, your transportation means. Taking a flight is more expensive than taking a train. Thirdly, your travel duration. The longer you stay, the more expenses you need to spend. Take an example of 4 days Lhasa city essential group tour, the cost is about USD125 per day if you choose 3-star hotels in the shoulder season.
