Even with the end of the travel season in sight there is still plenty of time to enjoy the stunning high altitude scenery and fascinating cultural experiences a Tibet tour offers. Saavy travelers avoid the landslide-blocked roads and monsoon rains of late summer by saving their visit for autumn. For those beginning to plan their tour Tibet Travel Agency-TCTS (Tibet Ctrip Travel Service http://www.tibetctrip.com) shares advice for planning how to get in and out.
- Those with time on their side can enjoy the ever-popular Qinghai Tibet Railway. The scenery is worth the ride, which can last anywhere from 24-48 hours depending on what leg of the journey travelers take. The most scenic portion of the trip is from Golmud to Lhasa so those looking to minimize time on the train can hop on in Xi’ning.
- Tibet tours visiting Everest or Kailash are excellent candidates for the overland trip from Nepal. A trip like this gives travelers two different perspectives on the Himalayas. Overland routes from China exist, however they are currently closed to foreign travelers.
- On a tight schedule? Or just looking for something easy? Flying is often the easiest and most cost efficient route when time is factored in. Non-stop flights are available from Kathmandu along with many cities in western/central China.
When making this kind of Tibet travel decision there is a tradeoff between schedule, budget, and travel interests. For example, the train is reasonably priced but eats up at least a day each way. Overland is ideal, but expensive. With only a few months before temperatures turn cold now is the time to start planning!
