International Travelers More Likely to Stay 8 to 15 Days in Tibet, Great Tibet Tour Finds

The data encompasses all tourists officially served between Jan 2017 and October 2019 – 10 thousand tourists – making it one of the most persuadable marketing studies.
This study also analyzed several other factors.
Impact of itinerary: 8-15 days can cover the most popular itineraries, which are also a once-in-a-lifetime experience to view the highest mountain in the world - Mt. Everest, with 8848m above sea level. After spending your first 3 days in Lhasa city for main tourist sites visiting, you will get ready to start the journey to Everest. You’ll stop by holy Yamdrok Lake, the glistening Karola Glacier and Khumbu Stupa in Gyantse and Shigatse. From there you’ll go up to over 5000 meters and spend a night at Everest Base Camp. If weather permits, you can enjoy the beautiful sunset and glorious sunrise before heading to the world's highest peak - Mount Kailash. Kailash in Tibetan means the treasure of the snow-capped mountain. Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism, Bon - native religion in Tibet and Jainism recognize it as the center of the world. Indians also think that this is the center of the world. They think Shiva lives here, who has the strongest mana and the highest position. At the same time, the upper reaches of the Indus and the Ganges originates from here. So, around Mt. Kailash, you can see a large number of Indian pilgrims.
Impact of places of distance: A single way from Lhasa city to Mt. Everest and Kailash is 600km~1300km, this distance for most travelers is acceptable. If you go further, most people will feel exhausted.
Impact of experience: If you only stay in Lhasa and the surrounding area, guests (except for limited time guests)
may feel sorry for not being able to explore the mysterious place of Tibet in-depth.
Impact of cost: Tour costs range from $1,000 to $1,800 per person. This is a range that most visitors to Tibet can accept. Moreover, the average daily consumption level is most cost-effective.
Great Tibet Tour also find visitors interested in Tibet may also be interested in Nepal, plus two places in the geographical location are very close, so to visit two places once is a wise choice. And the only international flight to Lhasa is from Kathmandu, which also facilitates transportation between Tibet and Nepal. Or you may take an overland tour to see the amazing scenery along the famed Sino-Nepal highway, as well as the major scenic spots.
One thing please note, if you'd like to have your Tibet tours from Kathmandu, you're required to apply for your China Group Visa instead of Chinese Visa. Getting China Group Visa usually takes 3 working days. So please leave a few extra days in Nepal.
