A destination above any other…

The autonomous region of Tibet is on the largest and highest plateau in the world Qinghai-Tibet Plateau which is located on the south-western periphery of China. Situated at an average altitude of 4,000 meters and home to at least 50 peaks towering 7,000 meters above sea level; Tibet is befittingly called the ‘Rooftop’ of the world. Some also refer to it as the Third Pole because the remoteness and harsh climate of this region can match the harsh conditions of the Arctic and Antarctic during the month of winters.

If you are planning to take a tour of Tibet; the best time to travel there would be from the beginning of April to the end of October. After that, the onset of winters in the region makes the climate too harsh to travel and cope for the visitors. If you are travelling to Tibet from China, you can also opt for the Qinghai–Tibet Railway journey, which is an engineering marvel in itself.

Lhasa will be your first Tibet tours Packages

Lhasa; the capital of Tibet is where you will kick-start your Tibet tour itinerary. Located at an altitude of 3700 meters above sea level, Lhasa is the lowest region in Tibet which is ideal for visitors to acclimatize to the thin air and lack of Oxygen in the atmosphere in this high altitude region.

The places you will really enjoy visiting in Lhasa include the 15th Century Drepung Monastery, the lively Barkhor Street, and the sacred Jokhang Temple. After Lhasa, the 2 important destinations in your Tibet Tours Packages are Gyantse and Shigatse, which are also accessible from Lhasa by road with the fabulous Yamdrok Tso Lake falling along the way to Gyantse.

 Plan your Tibet tour in advance

Before heading to Tibet though, it is important that you plan your journey in advance. For this purpose, you should go for Tibet Tours Packages offered by top travel operators organizing comprehensive tours in this region from China as well as from Nepal with their extensive network of agents located on both sides. In both cases though, you will need to book your tour at least a month earlier because of restrictions on travel permits which could take around 20 days to get clearance from the concerned authorities.

Depending on which side of Tibet you wish to travel from, a good travel operator like MW Tours will offer you fabulous itineraries for travelling to this amazing destination. Based on the availability of time and funds at your disposal, you can choose from Tibet Tours Packages that will take you on a journey to some of the most amazing destinations across Tibet.
