Lhasa, Tibet (PRWEB) August 31, 2015
Tibet Ctrip Travel Serice-TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com) is introducing a new overland budget Tibet tour for the fall travel season. This trip is designed for travelers with only a few days to spare who are also looking to keep costs low. The trip begins in Lhasa and ends in Nepal on the 5th day. Travelers will join a small group of like minded individuals on the trip, retaining much of the comfort and flexibility of a private tour while avoiding the pitfalls of a large group tour.
Upon arrival in Lhasa, the guide or another representative from TCTS will meet travelers at the airport and accompany them to their hotel in Lhasa. It’s a good idea to rest and stay well hydrated while acclimatizing to the altitude. Travelers will enjoy a free day in Lhasa to do some shopping and independent exploration. A walking tour is on the schedule for the third day of the tour of Tibet; travelers will visit Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, and Barkhor Bazaar.
Spending time in Lhasa provides an excellent opportunity for learning about Tibetan culture and history while seeing every day modern life in action. However, the city is only a small fraction of what Tibet has to offer. The tour group will get a taste of life in Tibet’s more rural and remote regions as they make their way to Lhatse town, a 500km drive that passes magnificent sites like Lake Yamdrok.
Tibet travel is hardly complete without a chance to see Everest. Weather permitting, the travel group will be able to catch a glimpse of the magnificent mountain from Lhatse before they head for the border with Nepal. Their native Tibetan guide will assist them in crossing and see them off as they leave for Kathmandu. The 5-day Lhasa to Nepal tour starts at just $650 per person, availability is filling up so book quickly!
