Famous as the “third pole of the world”, Tibet located on Tibetan Plateau with an average altitude of 4,000 meters above sea level. More and more international travelers want to explore this mysterious land, but travel in Tibet is more expensive than in other cities of China. However, there’s also the opportunity to have a budget Tibet tour. We offer group tour packages to make a Tibet tour affordable.
Covers a massive area, Tibet is huge. If you travel by yourself, the cost of driver and vehicle is a big amount. For example, travel from Lhasa to Everest Base Camp and back costs more than CNY10, 000, while to Nam Tso Lake and back costs more than CNY3, 000.
What’s more, international travelers can’t travel in Tibet by themselves. You must hire an English speaking travel guide with a permit, and it’s not cheap. Travel with a small budget, this will increase the cost.
To enter scenic sites, such as temples, monasteries, lakes, and mountains, you should pay the entrance fee. The price varies according to seasons, for example, the entrance fee for the Potala Palace is USD32 per person in high season, and is USD14 for Jokhang Temple. A tour from Lhasa to Everest Base Camp will take you between USD175 to USD225 per person for entrance fees.
Before entering Tibet, you should apply for a Chinese Visa, a Tibet Travel Permit, and some other permits. They’re not for free.
