Tibet Ctrip Travel Service-TCTS, one Local Tibet travel agency (www.tibetctrip.com) is helping travelers minimize costs while having the most authentic Tibet travel experience possible. TCTS’s new Tibetan Landscape and Culture Tour blends world famous cultural sites with Tibet’s astounding scenery!

New and improved budget Tibet tours by Tibet Ctrip Travel Service-TCTS (www.tibetctrip.com) are allowing travelers to minimize travel costs while avoiding the hassles of large group tours! On TCTS’s new Tibet Landscape and Cultural Discovery Tour, travelers will have opportunities to visit world-famous Tibetan cultural and historical sites in addition to seeing some of Tibet’s stunning mountain landscapes. TCTS organizes groups of 2-10 people by matching small travel groups thereby cutting per person travel costs and preserving the comfort and flexibility of a private tour.

Day 1: Arrive in Lhasa. Travel group’s native Tibetan guide will meet them at the airport and accompany them on the airport shuttle bus to Lhasa. After checking into their hotel, travelers are advised to take it easy while they acclimatize to the altitude. It’s best to drink lots of water and keep walking light.

Day 2: Sightseeing in Lhasa. On the first full day of sightseeing travelers will visit Potala Palace, former home of the present and past Dalai Lama. This is, indisputably, one of the top must-see Tibet attractions. After Potala Palace it’s a short walk to Jokhang Temple, one of the most revered sites among Tibetan Buddhists. Pilgrims from all corners of Tibet can be seen praying and circumambulating the perimeter of the temple.

Day 3: Biking tour of Lhasa! Today is an exciting day! Travelers begin biking in the morning; they will see hustling and bustling streets filled with pilgrims spinning prayer wheels and locals going about their business. Stops will be made at the Tibet Museum and Norbulinka, summer palace of the Dalai Lama. After lunch, the biking tour heads for Sera Monastery to watch the monks debate Tibetan Buddhist scriptures. From here, it’s an easy ride back to Barkhor Bazaar to explore its winding pathways and pick up some souvenirs.

Day 4: See Tibetan Landscapes. No tour of Tibet is complete without seeing its natural beauty! Travelers will make a day trip to Lake Namtso and have the option to visit Yangpachen Geothermal Spring. Lake Namtso shines turquoise on clear days, its islands and surrounding cave hermitages have drawn pilgrims for centuries. Travelers will not only see breath-taking landscapes at Lake Namtso but also on the drive to and from; the wide open expanses have a mountainous backdrop and are dotted with tents of local nomads.

Day 5-6: Visit Gyantse and Shigatse. More stunning landscapes are on order for today! On the way to Gyantse travelers will stop at Lake Yamdrok. After lunch in Gyantse, it will be time to learn about Tibetan Buddhism at Pelkhor Monastery and see the beautiful paintings and sculptures of Kumbum Pagoda. Before heading back to Lhasa, travelers will visit Tashilhunpo Monastery and have time to explore Shigatse’s Tibetan market.

 

Day 7: Depart Lhasa.  There will be a bit of free time to explore and take last minute pictures before the group’s native Tibetan guide accompanies them to the airport shuttle stop. There are several flights to major Chinese cities daily and flights to Kathmandu at least 3 times a week.

Over this 7-day budget tour of Tibet, travelers will learn about Tibetan culture sightseeing in Lhasa, Shigatse, and Gyantse while taking in mountain scenery as they visit Lake Yamdrok, Lake Namtso, and Yangpachen Geothermal Spring. TCTS organizes budget tours differently than other travel agencies; they prefer to organize small groups instead of packing travelers in with 20-30 other people. This helps lower the cost per person while giving travelers the most authentic Tibet travel experience possible. Departure dates are first come first serve, travelers are advised to book soon!

Top 10 Tibet travel tips on Tour Sightseeing in 2013

Top 10 Tibet travel tips with regards to Tibet tour sightseeing

Follow the practical Tibet travel tips top 10 and hope it helps when you tour Tibet.

• There are lots of small and infamous chapels but these chapels are as interesting as the big touristic spots like Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple or Sera monastery, so, combine the very touristic spots and the smaller chapels and the small Muslim streets in Lhasa;

• Namtso is one day trip of landscape with Tibetan Nomad life experience, it is 500 km round-trip to the northwest of Lhasa city, if tourists have one way train travel, it is not necessary do this day trip because travelers can have similar view from the train window, on the other hand, Namtso day trip is not cheap;

• And go out of Lhasa city; take a one-day hike, to see rural life. The Tibetan countryside lifestyle is totally different from the city and it is a kind of unique Tibetan culture;

• Make Tibet tour preparation at two month in advance. It takes time to obtain a Chinese visa (if coming from abroad) and it takes about 3 weeks to prepare to apply Tibet permit;

• Spring and autumn are the best times to travel to central Tibet, while summer is with nice weather and suitable for all tours except for few trekking itineraries due to monsoon season;

• The Qinghai Tibet railway travel is a nice option for getting to or leaving Tibet

• To visit Mt. Everest which is about 620 km to the southwest of Lhasa city, 4 days is a must but  one night stop in Shegar is fine, so a 4 nights 5 days from and to Lhasa is necessary to make it as a more comfortable Tibet adventure.

• To visit Ani Tsankhung Nunnery. Ani Tsankhung was built in the 7th century by Songsten Gampo who used its meditation chamber.The monastery is a yellow building  lying on the street parallel and north of Chingdol Dong Lu in Lhasa.

• Begin the daily tour sightseeing program as flexibly as you can. If you have a private Tibet tour, you can talk with your Tibetan travel guide about the next day’s sightseeing activities in details.

• Prepare well for a Tibet trekking adventure. For trekking on high altitude, it is not easy. Travelers should plan this well together with local Tibet travel agency and make sure it goes smoothly on the high altitude.

However, we still hope you can respect to local traditions and behave well since their unique Tibetan lifestyle is part of the charm of Tibet. Here are Tibet travel tips of don’ts.

• Don’t take photos without permission. Ask permission before photographing people or religious sites!

• No smoking in monasteries;

• No touch Buddha statues, religious objects or prayer flags;

• Don’t step on the threshold when entering a tent, house, or monastery;

• Don’t eat fish in front of Tibetan people (but only few Tibetan people get use to it);

• Don’t eat prawn in front of Tibetan people;

• Don’t disturb or injure yaks, cows or sheep with red, yellow or green ribbons because they are Tibetan sacrifice to worship gods.
