Lhasa based Tibet travel agency, TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com) is working to make Tibet a more accessible travel destination to families. A rapidly evolving tourist infrastructure has made travel to, from, and within Tibet nearly as easy as any others of Asia’s most popular destinations. TCTS is able to provide a flexible tour schedule with knowledgeable native Tibetan guides. This is great for family travel with children. Through years of experience operating tours of Tibet, TCTS seamlessly takes care of details such as travel permits and hotels, giving travelling families a much-needed opportunity to relax and enjoy an unforgettable vacation!
Lhasa is a great starting point for most family Tibet tours. Several flights arrive every day from a variety of major Chinese cities, while flights from Kathmandu arrive at least three times a week during the travel season. Relative to the rest of Tibet, Lhasa’s sit at a lower altitude gives travelers an opportunity to acclimatize before making the trip to higher altitude locations. A family’s private Tibetan guide will pick them up from the airport and accompany them to their hotel for relaxation and acclimatization. The first few days are spent in Lhasa while touring must-see cultural and historical sites such as Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, and Barkhor Bazaar. Even families on a tight schedule will find that just a few days in Lhasa provides countless opportunities to learn about Tibetan culture and see every day Tibetan life.
Those looking to plan an extensive tour of Tibet will find no shortage of family friendly options. When planning a trip, families are advised to focus on their interests firstly and then begin planning an itinerary around them! Families traveling with younger children may wish to visit places with more comfortable accommodations while families with older children may be able to be a bit more adventurous. Also, Tibet is a large country so car rides can be long. Families looking to avoid long car rides and enjoy comfortable accommodations will enjoy places such as the Yarlung Valley, Shigatse, and Gyantse. More remote destinations such as Mt. Everest or Mt. Kailash require two or more days of driving and options for accommodations may be more limited. TCTS is more than happy to offer suggestions and customize any tour to meet a travelling family’s needs.
A tour of Tibet is certain to create lasting memories and is great for teaching children about foreign cultures! With TCTS’s experienced tour staff, family members will be able to relax and enjoy the mountain scenery without worrying about travel details. A four or five day tour of Lhasa and the surrounding area is perfect for tight schedules and overland tours lasting up to three weeks or more can be arranged for those seeking an in-depth experience. The majority of tours have a flexible schedule so families aren't rushed at Tibet attractions and are free to take breaks on long drives. With summer in Tibet coming soon, families are advised to start planning their tour now.
