Publish Time: 2019-03-14 Author: From: China Tibet Online

Since the Tibet permit regulations were put in place, traveling to Tibet has always been considered to be an expensive trip. However, in comparison with a holiday in other places around the world, traveling to Tibet only appears to be more expensive because of the outright cost of the tour. With all of the inclusive items in the Tibet Tour packages, traveling to Tibet is well worth the cost these days.

General Cost of Touring in Tibet in Different Seasons

The cost of traveling to Tibet can differ from season to season, with summer being the most expensive and winter being the cheapest. Travel to Tibet in the winter months is still possible, and you can still get to see most of the stunning attractions of the plateau, including Mount Qomolangma Base Camp. The advantage of winter travel is that many things are discounted in price, from train tickets to accommodation, making the entire trip cheaper.

Travel in the summer months, from June to September, is more expensive due to the high season and the number of travelers. With summer being the most popular time to go, prices are often increased to meet the demand. However, this is true of every holiday destination in the world, so it is not only Tibet that is more expensive in the peak season.
