Tibet is a very fascinating place to visit, and there are lots of reasons to go and explore it. If you don’t have the limits of work and other commitments, you will have the chance to travel for several weeks. Retiring is an opportunity, if health is with you, to travel to Tibet at least once in your life. Apart from retiring, there are many other advantages for the elders to travel to Tibet. For example, seniors usually have their savings, so they have more chances to experience local life, eat more delicious foods, and live in more great hotels. However, they also need to be prepared before traveling. In this guide, there are some tips, along with a few of some useful suggestions about Tibet tours for them to learn about.

We have received many of the letters from senior travelers asking us is it safe for them to travel to Tibet or is these any age limit for Tibet tour for the elderly? The answer is: YES, it is safe to travel to Tibet. Moreover, there is no age limit for senior travelers to travel to Tibet. Many successful examples can prove that age will never be an obstacle for traveling to Tibet. In 2013, John Bailey from the USA, paid a visit to Mt. Everest Base Camp at the age of 82. The oldest person reaching the peak of the world’s highest mount Everest is a 76 years old man from Nepal. And the oldest woman who conquer the Mt. Everest is a 73-year-old Japanese woman. Even that, you need to check your health conditions. We do not suggest the elderly who have cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease to travel to Tibet. You’d better consult doctor before traveling to Tibet.
For the elderly, booking a private Tibet tour will be more flexible than group tours. Here we have collected some of the most popular private tours for you to choose from.

Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. Sorry we do not have any group tour in Jan or Feb to Kailash as there will be heavy snow and the road will be blocked, and also the area would be closed, and no one do the business there, no hotel, no restaurants there. So from Nov to March we would not send any groups there.
If you would like to do this tour, you must plan it from April to Oct. and at present we have the group tour in next 6th May and 29th May, and we will have more available date in future. if you are interested in joining in this, please kindly let me know. Best regards.
