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.

I would be interrested to join a Lhasa to Kathmandu tour in November (26th novembre). Do you have other tourists on this tour and what would be the price of it for one or two person?

Thank you.


Answered by Helen

Dear Mr. Si***,

Thanks very much for your inquiry. We currently have one departure date on 26th November for Lhasa to Kathmandu group tour, but there is no person joining in at present. If you are two persons together, we are able to open this tour for you. If you are only one person, here we suggest that you can join our 8 days Tibet Mt. Everest group tour, the major scenic spots of this tour are almost the same as the Lhasa to Kathmandu tour, the difference is that you need to get back to Lhasa and fly from Lhasa to Kathmandu. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Best regards.
