Lhasa, Tibet (PRWEB) July 13, 2012
Update: For 2012 summer Tibet travel, foreign tourists must acquire permits and enter Tibet through Kathmandu, Nepal. Entering Tibet through China is not possible at this time due to government restrictions. Songtsan Travel is licensed to make travel and permit arrangements for foreign tourists entering from Nepal.
Songtsan Travel, a Tibetan-owned agency in Lhasa, now offers a variety of trekking adventures. “Tibet is the only Himalayan destination not yet known for trekking adventures,” said Songtsan Travel. “But there is much more to Tibet than Buddhism, monasteries, and cold weather.”
“ Whether it is a pilgrimage trek or a mountain expedition, Tibet offers trekking trips from short one day hikes to month-long journeys.” Available routes include Everest base camp treks, the Kharta valley, Ganden to Samye monastery treks, Holy Lake Namtso, and others.
April to October is the best season for Tibet trekking, but it also depends on the chosen route. Some travelers prefer taking a Tibet tour in the winter when prices are lower and there are fewer crowds.
“We offer many different types of treks to Tibet, with a range of options to suit every budget,” Songtsan Travel said. “What's more, as we understand that a visit to this special country is a highly personal experience, we can also arrange a trek to meet your specific needs.”
Songtsan Travel is a Lhasa-based tour operator with more than 20 years of experience leading Tibet tours. The agency uses part of its proceeds to provide education to disadvantaged children. Songtsan Travel seeks to promote Tibetan culture and help Tibetans improve their livelihood.
