Tibet travel has been wildly popular so far in 2015, but the fun and adventure isn't winding down yet. To many travelers surprise, fall is an excellent time to visit and some areas of Tibet are even hospitable during the winter.Travelers who make the trip are in for an adventure filled with stunning high altitude scenery and interesting cultural experiences. Amongst popular travel destinations, Tibet is unique and travelers are encouraged to arrive well informed. To help travelers prepare, Tibet Ctrip Travel Service-TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com) shares their expert knowledge.

  • To avoid altitude sickness, stay hydrated before and after arrival. Most will probably experience mild symptoms such as headache or shortness of breath at some point. However, this is rarely severe enough to get in the way of normal activities. Minimizing alcohol or tobacco use for the first couple of days is also recommended.
  • While planning a trip, don’t be confused or overwhelmed by all the details involved with obtaining a Tibet visa; the group’s travel agency will walk everyone through the process. Unlike 2013 and 2014, there is no restriction on group sizes or nationality of travel group members, except for travel in the Kailash area. Here, Indian passport holders must travel with other Indian passport holders.
  • In public, it’s best to avoid conversations about local politics and other sensitive topics. While the political climate has been relatively stable in 2015 such conversations may still make locals feel uncomfortable or unsafe. Also, do not take pictures of police or military.

Autumn can be an excellent time to visit Tibet; temperatures are comfortable and the threat of monsoon rains has passed for the year. During the winter, Lhasa may be cold but visitors will avoid the crowds of the summer. Full service Tibet tour operators, like TCTS, make visiting an easy experience by taking care of everything from transportation to guides and hotels. Even so, it’s still important to arrive well prepared and well informed. With the fall 2015 travel season right around the corner now is the time to start planning!
