Toilet Revolution in Tibet

Time: 13-09-2018 This Article is Composed by BudgetTibetTour

Did you face the dilemma of using the toilet with poor condition? 

Over the past few decades, the condition of infrastructure in Tibet Autonomous Region has been improved greatly. Same improvement happens to toilets in Tibet. President Xi pointed out that the toilet problem is not a small issue, which is an important factor for urban and rural civilization construction.

In the 1990s, 13 public toilets were built in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. Although this act solved the problem of open defecation to a degree, the smell and mess will make tourists chicken out. 13 latrines are definitely far from enough to satisfy the need of Lhasa.

In the 2000s, with more and more public toilets were built in Lhasa, people’s living environment was changed greatly.

In recent few years, “Toilet Revolution” was implemented in China. During this period, the number of toilets increased. For example, in the Barkhor Street, with an area of 1.33 square kilometers, have 53 public toilets, which mean that you can find a one in every few minutes. Meanwhile, lots of measures are taken by local office to optimize the facilities of the toilets so that people can use it more conveniently and comfortably.

Hello!


My husband and I are looking at travel in April 2019. We currently are only a group of 2, but it is possible we may have another 2 friends join us.
We are comparing tours for the 7 day tour from Lhasa to Kathmandu. What price can you offer for group tour for 2 (or 4 people) for the Lhasa to Kathmandu trips if we were to book in the next two weeks?


Many thanks,
Ho***

Answered by Nancy

Dear Ms. Ho***,

Greetings from Nancy Chung at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry, if there are 4 people in your group, I recommend you to take it as private tour, thus you will have the guide and driver on your own, and the tour can be flexible. If there are 2 in your group, of course take part in a group tour is better, and we have several groups in April, or we can open a new date based on your travel time, and our group size is 4 to 13 people. And if you will book in next weeks, I can apply some discount for you. Please check the email for more details. Best regards.

Answered by Nancy

Dear Mr. Go***,

Greetings from Nancy Chung at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry, please kindly let me know your nationality if you will visit Kailash, as we cannot apply Tibet permit to Kailash for Indian passport holders, and also Kailash is not possible to go from late Oct to early April due to the cold weather, and it will closed. If you will just take the tour from Kathmandu to Lhasa via Mt. Everest, which will be no problem to go year around (except every March). If you can provide how many people in your group and when you would like to take this tour, you will get the precise quote within 24 hours. Thanks and best regards to you.
