Due to government preferential policies and promotional efforts, winter tourism in Southwest China's Tibet autonomous region continues to boom despite unfavorable local weather for outdoor activities.

Some 510,000 tourists visited the region during the week-long Spring Festival, which kicked off on Feb 5 this year. Altogether, they spent almost 350 million yuan ($51.8 million), up by 17 percent year-on-year.

The regional government started offering subsidies on hotels, flights and tickets to scenic spots since last February. The measure is part of its efforts to turn Tibet into "the world third pole" and attract 40 million tourists in 2019.

Phunmotso, a local tour guide, noted that she has been taking group tours to the local sights since the second day of Spring Festival, and the crowd outside the Potala Palace was so large, she and her group had to wait for six hours to get in.

In 2018, the region has received a record number of 33.68 million tourists, up by 31.5 percent year-on-year, according to the government report.

Hello, we are considering to travel in Tibet in summer. We are a family of 5, two adults and three kids, age 13(then), 10, 8. We are interested in the 10 days Mt. EBC & Namtso Lake Group tour. We are US citizens with valid 10-year Chinese multiple entry visa, which we have applied when we went to Beijing in 2019. We are currently living in South Korea.  

Questions:

1. Are kids suitable (or even allowed) for this tour?

Answered by Helen

Dear Ms. Ho***,

    Greetings from Helen at Budget Tibet Tour and welcome you to join our 10 days Mt. Everest & Namtso Lake group tour. For your questions: 1. Your kids are suitable for this tour. Travelling in Tibet is as safe for kids as it is for their parents. While the high Tibetan plateau may be the highest place on the planet, very often, the kids that visit this region are more adaptable and have fewer problems than their parents. We also have arranged wonderful Tibet tours for many families with kids such as a tour to EBC for a family with a 3-year-old son, a 9-year-old girl and a 11-year-old boy, they did have fun in Tibet and there is no problem for them. Or you can take some medicine under the guidance of doctor to prevent high altitude before enter Tibet. 2. If kids travel with you, we'll offer some discount for them, please check your email and find more detailed information. Thanks & Regards
