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.

Dear Ms. Pa***,

Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry.  At present we do not set any date in Oct 2020, and we can set any date based on yours, and if possible I hope you can come in next half of Oct as all the cost would be cheaper and less people there.

There is environment bus in Kailash, and people can take about 10 km with bus taking, but after that, no vehicle will be available during the trekking, so if your husband cannot take trekking, he has to rest in hotel with our driver and wait all of you come back. And also there is horse hire, people can hire a horse to ride, but as the road off mountain, because it is quite cliffy, so people are not allowed to ride a horse and need to take foot on own. And also the highest mountain pass will be around 5300meters high. So better for him to rest in hotel. But we will visit the holy lake without problem. I will send you more details by email, please check it there, best regards.
