Tibet – Stay

Five-star hotels in Tibet include Shangri-La, St. Regis, InterContinental and more. There are also a number of affordable youth hostels where tourists can make friends from all over the world which will make your trip less lonely. If these are not available, you might consider staying in one of the Tibetan family hotels. Lhasa is the city with the best food and accommodations in Tibet. Restaurants and hostels can be found across the city.

Tibet now has a small number of star-rated hotels though their star-rating standard is lower compared to those on the mainland. At the same time, we cannot measure the quality of the facilities from the perspective of the mainland.

People with severe hypertension, asthma, and heart disease must pay special care. It is not recommended that those with these conditions enter Tibet as they will be vulnerable to altitude sickness and in severe cases this can cause death. Those in good health can enter Tibet but should rest more before setting out. It is not advisable to do strenuous exercises before entering.
