Lhasa, Tibet (PRWEB) July 31, 2015
As Tibet travel becomes more and more popular, travelers on a budget have been look for a way to enjoy remote Himalayan scenery without breaking the bank. Compared to other destinations, Tibet can sometimes be on the expensive side; visitors will need to hire a guide and a driver on top of normal travel expenses such as airfare and hotels, especially if they’d like to get off the beaten path.
Over the 2015 travel season, Tibet Ctrip Travel Service-TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com) has been phasing in a lineup of new group budget tours that keep group sizes small (capped at 8) and retain much of the comfort and flexibility of a private tour of Tibet. This means lower per person prices than a private tour but without the crowded tour busses filled with 30+ people. In a smaller group setting like this, travelers will have more opportunities to ask questions about their surroundings and learn about Tibet’s culture and history.
Tours of Lhasa can be completed in as little as four days, which is great for travelers on the move. Those with a couple extra days may want to consider joining a tour that visits Gyantse and Shigatse via Lake Yamdrok. Travel groups seeking a more in depth experience are encouraged to check out the Everest Base Camp tour (8+ days) or the Kailash Manasarovar tour (14+ days).
Thanks to tours by TCTS travelers looking to keep costs low can travel farther and wider in Tibet than before. TCTS takes care of everything to hotels and transportation to guides and travel permits leaving visitors free to enjoy their journey. Availability for fall 2015 is filling up quickly so now is the time to plan a tour of Tibet!
