Tibet Entered Winter Tourism Period in October

Published on October 15th, 2009 by Irene

Initiation ceremony of touring Tibet in winter was held in October by the Tibet Tourism Administration, officially marking the launch of the 2009 Tibet winter tourism. The Tibet winter tour annually lasts from November to March.

Summer is always thought to be the perfect Tibet travel season for its special geography location and the hot tourist season always lasts from May to October. Actually Tibet winter is not as freezing as most people thought. In winter, most of the Tibet areas have the temperature ranging from -10 °C to 10 °C and warm sunshine is always available. Especially Nyingchi Prefecture area, the leading area of Tibet winter tour, boasts a great number of world-class natural landscapes like the magnificent Yarlung Tsangpo Grand Canyon, Namcha Barwa Peak, Bowo Glaciers, Basum Tso Lake, and also preserves many traditional festivals in winter which add more luring touch to the winter tour in Nyingchi Prefecture.

Tibet scenery in winter is much more magnificent than that in summer days. The Tibet winter would be nicer, less overcast and rainy, brighter sunshine, more chance for you to clearly appreciate the beautiful world-class snow mountains, glaciers and greener or bluer lakes, more spacious virgin forest sea. Furthermore, 30% to 50%'s off price on hotel, scenic spot and no tourist crowd can contribute to an economic Tibet winter travel.
