Explore Tibet, a Lhasa-based tour company, is now offering specially designed Tibet winter tours to the region. The tours, lasting from four to nine days, include a trip to Lhasa and the Tibetan plateau. Till October 2013, Explore Tibet has served more than 500 clients from all over the world, gaining favorable comments and a good reputation. Under the encouragement of those sound feedbacks, Explore Tibet indicate that they have the confidence to make still further progress. Travelers can have a convenient and dependable way to explore Tibet now.
“These cultural and spiritual journeys are specially designed for those who are keen to visit Tibet during the winter time and experience the authentic Tibetan life,” Explore Tibet have said.
During the winter months in Tibet, tourists are outnumbered by local pilgrims. Furthermore, as winter is a quiet time for farming, many Tibetans from the surrounding plateau use the downtime to make their pilgrimage. Monasteries, temples and streets teem with traditionally dressed Tibetans.
In Lhasa, travelers will visit prominent historical and religious sites, including Potala Palace and Barkhor Street.
The tour will then proceed further into Western Tibet, along the Brahmaputra river, and ascending the Gampa la mountain pass (4900m).
“From the pass you will be amazed by the breathtaking view of the Holy Lake Yamdrok and snowcapped Mt. Nyenchen Kangsar in the background,” Explore Tibet have said.
Travellers will then continue on toward Gyantse and Shigatse in Western Tibet.
Explore Tibet is a locally owned Tibet travel agency committed to responsible tourism, Tibetan travel permit and sustainable practice.
