Amenities in Tibet

Tibet referred to as the highest region on earth is also one of the least developed parts of the world. Being extremely remote and isolated, the facilities for pilgrims although being upgraded are still very basic. Modern amenities are very hard to find in the hotels & guest houses in Western Tibet.

The quality of accommodation will vary from place to place. It may be necessary at times to share a room with a few others or participate in an outdoor toilet adventure, or go without a shower for a few days. Rest assured, we will in every instance provide you with the best accommodation that the place has to offer. We will always be there to support you and make the journey a pleasant one.
