Lhasa, Tibet (PRWEB) August 10, 2015
In just over a month another wave of travelers will be arriving in Lhasa for their autumn tours of Tibet. Autumn in Tibet retains the hospitable temperatures of summer while often bringing clear views of the Himalayan scenery that can be obscured by cloudy weather during other parts of the year. Tibet Travel Service-TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com) updates travelers with tips for planning a tour this autumn.
When selecting dates please be aware that the Tibet Tourism Bureau will not be issuing Tibet travel permits for the first half of September. Travelers must be aware that changes in travel policy are typical and sometimes unpredictable. After clearing travel dates, the next step is to figure out what kind of tour is most suitable for the travel group. While figuring this out be sure to keep in mind who is going and how long they’d like to visit. For example, those who like long car rides and lots of scenery may want to consider an overland tour while a family with children may want to fill their tour with a stimulating variety of activities.
Popular travel review sites are good places to shop for a Tibet tour operator. Successful travelers recommend sending out multiple inquiries and then following up with those who are prompt in their response and attentive to what the group is looking for. For the easiest experience possible, it’s best to apply for Chinese visas (or a passport) well in advance. These documents will be required for obtaining travel permits.
During the planning process, don’t let all the details overwhelm the travel group. There’s a lot to sort through at first, but once everyone has settled on a tour operator that meets their needs the experience is relatively straightforward. A tour of Tibet is a special experience and investing the time in planning the perfect trip is worth every minute put in. With the autumn 2015 travel season almost here now is the time to start planning a tour!
