Traveling in Tibet is not considered "CHEAP" because all foreign travelers must have Travel Permits, a tour guide and a vehicle with a driver. The cost of vehicles accounts for a great proportion. Tibet Travel Org CITS offers many tour packages to help travelers cut down cost by sharing tour guides, vehicles and rooms with others.
