Lhasa based Tibet Travel Service-Tibet Ctrip Travel Service (TCTS http://www.tibetctrip.com), has been working to expand its selection of Tibetan culture tours for the lower tour season in 2013 and 2014. Whether touring Tibet’s world famous cultural and historical sites or spending some free time exploring places like Lhasa or Shigatse, travelers will have opportunities to see every day life and enjoy insights into how Tibet’s history has shaped its modern culture. TCTS employs experienced native Tibetan guides who have extensive knowledge of Tibet and are always more than happy to answer questions. Some of the latest additions to TCTS’s low season Tibet tour selection include:
Lhasa Culture Tour: This 4-day tour of Lhasa, and the surrounding area, is perfect for travelers on a tight schedule and budget. Travelers will have time to rest and acclimatize to the altitude after arrival in Lhasa. Over the next two days the travel group’s native Tibetan guide will accompany them to famous Tibet attractions such as Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple; these are places not to be missed. After, travelers will have time to explore Tibet traditional streets of Barkhor Bazaar. On the second day travelers have a number of options for sightseeing in and around Lhasa; many choose to visit Sera and Drepung Monasteries while others may choose to visit Norbulingka which is the summer palace of the Dalai Lama. On the final day of the tour, travelers have free time to explore Lhasa before heading to the airport or Railway station.
Tibet Culture Odyssey: On this 5 to 6 days tour travelers will have many opportunities to learn about Tibetan History. The tour begins in Lhasa and includes a visit to Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, and Sera Monastery. Travelers will also have free time to explore Barkhor Bazaar and shop for souvenirs. After touring Lhasa, the tour heads for Yarlung Valley which is the cradle of Tibetan Civilization. Travelers will see the city of Tsetang (Tibet’s first capital), tour Yumbulagang Palace (the first palace built in Tibet), and visit Samye Monastery. And after finishing the trip in cultural cradle of Tsetang, travelers will be taken to the 2nd largest city of Tibet-Shigatse. On the way, never miss the highlight attractions of Lake Yamdrok, Karola Glacier, Pelkhor Monastery and Tashilhunpo Monastery.
These Tibet tours are great for travelers who enjoy learning about culture and history in a lower tour season. TCTS’s local Tibetan guide’s extensive knowledge of Tibet’s history and culture will help travelers take away valuable understanding that they can share with friends and family in their home country. A native Tibetan guide helps provide an authentic perspective so travelers are encouraged to ask questions. Travelers may ask when it is the best time to have these tours, while the answer is: it is good to take these tours throughout the whole year but to avoid the busy tour season, it is just great to come in April, May, June, September, late October and November, December. However, TCTS does not suggest travelers to come in January, February and March because of cold weather and uncertainty of Tibet permits.
