Tibet Accommodation

Tibet is still a simple place and its accommodation is still limited, especially at remote and higher places. There are some good hotels in cities like Lhasa and Shigatse but at most other places, there are only 2 or 3 star hotels or guest houses in dormitory type. Even for the same standard hotels, you may find those in Tibet are inferior to that of places in mainland China, like Beijing, Chengdu, etc.  

For the accommodation inside the Mt. Everest reserve, there are mainly three places to stay: the guest house at Rongbuk Monastery, Guanjingtai Hostel and the tourist tent at Mt. Everest Base Camp. Among them, only Guanjingtai Hostel can provide twin-sharing rooms. Though with poor condition, those accommodation costs nearly the same as a 3-4 star hotel in Lhasa.

For the hotels in Lhasa, we category them into three rankings as follows: Budget, Mid Range and Top End. Currently, we only introduce the best hotels of each category. This list may change from time to time according to clients' feedback. 

Note: The  local rules stipulated that foreign tourists shall travel Tibet in organized groups with the permits granted by Tibet Tourism Bureau. As an officially licensed travel company in Tibet, we do not provide "accommodation only" service.
