Travelers don’t have to look far for a quality Tibet budget tour. Tibet Ctrip’s innovative staff has made it possible to cut costs on their new budget Everest Base Camp tour without sacrificing quality. Mt. Everest is one of Tibet’s must-sees, drawing thousands of visitors a year. While some travelers may prefer to hire a private car and driver, for a group of 2-3 people this can get expensive. Instead of packing small travel groups on a crowded bus with 20-30 other travelers, Tibet Ctrip lowers cost per person by matching small groups with other small groups.
The Tibet tour begins in Lhasa where a native Tibetan guide will pick travelers up from the airport or train station. Depending on the group’s preference, they will spend 2-3 days sightseeing in Lhasa while acclimating to the altitude. It is important to avoid intense physical activity and drink lots of water, especially if the group will be completing the four-day trek to Everest Base Camp. Most sightseeing tours of Lhasa include Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple along with Sera and Drepung Monasteries. After spending a few days in Lhasa, it will be time to head towards Everest Base Camp via Shigatse where travelers will spend the night and visit Tashilhunpo Monastery.
Since the travel group will be small, there will be plenty of opportunities to stop for pictures of the mountain scenery. At Mt. Everest Base Camp there are a number of different tent camps to stay in. For those trekking, Tibet Ctrip provides camping gear! Most arrive later in the afternoon or early evening allowing plenty of time to relax and enjoy a meal cooked in their camp. Everest usually shows its face early in the morning, so travelers are advised to get to get a good night’s sleep. Spring and fall are the best times for Tibet travel to Everest; a clear view of the mountain is absolutely breath taking!
This new kind of budget tour allows travelers more one on one time with their native Tibetan guide, giving them greater insight into Tibetan culture, and allows them to make friends with other group members. Budget travelers often feel that there are limited options for travelling in Tibet, which is why Tibet Ctrip is working to create new travel solutions. Every visitor to Tibet deserves to witness the magnificence of the tallest mountain in the world, now travelers can be confident that they can do without sacrificing the flexibility and quality of a private tour!
