Most importantly, all travelers in Tibet are kindly requested to bear in mind that Tibet being extremely remote and isolated by the most formidable Himalayan ranges remains still one of the most captivating but least developed parts in the world. With its very short history of tourism (just about 8 years), the facilities for tourists although being upgraded are still at a basic and limited scale. So, the visitors are requested not to have high expectation in terms of facilities in Tibet. However, we will always put all our efforts to make your journey as pleasant as possible.
Besides, the road between Tibet & Nepal is not up to the standard. It is rough, bumpy and full of bends. Particularly during monsoon (June- August), it can be temporarily obstructed by landslides and erosion. So, a bit sporty wears and shoes are much advised facilitating the travelers to walk over the landslides (especially in the Nepal portion).

However, we advise specially the guest with known heart or lungs or blood diseases to consult their doctor before traveling.

Hotels en Route:
As the facilities in Tibet are very basic, hotels, although they look gorgeous, do not has proper facilities even in Lhasa. So, in the remote areas, it is obvious that hotels may not have enough double rooms and clients sometimes may have to have triple, four or five bedded rooms in some places. However, we always try to provide twin bedded rooms. Especially, first, two night has to be spent in such basic hotels that may not have bathrooms attached and could require you to use common toilets.
