Accommodation in Tibet
Hotel en route:
The facilities available in Tibet are very basic. The hotels look gorgeous but they even do not have proper facilities in Lhasa. Therefore, you must understand that in the remote areas you may not get hotels with enough double rooms and sometimes the clients need to compromise with three, four or five bedrooms in the same place. However, we always try to provide twin bedded rooms. You will have to spend first two nights in the hotels where there are not attached bathrooms and probably you will have to use common toilets too. Therefore, you are advised not to nurture high expectation from the tour in terms of facilities in hotels; particularly in such remote places.

Breakfast: From the first day onward, breakfast will be offered after an hour's drive from Kathmandu at a Mountain Resort at Dhulikhel. So, please do not bother for breakfast in your Hotel, which may cause delay to report to the bus stand. Breakfast is included throughout your tour.
Tipping: Guides and drivers are not paid well in Tibet. So, you are kindly requested to tip the guide and driver so as to enable us to have them happy for our future groups as well.
Last minute checking: very importantly, on the last day, if you are traveling in a group, please make sure your guide has the original visa copy with him (if you are traveling in group) and other necessary travel documents (travel permit for the group and alien's travel permit for the individual travelers) before you leave your hotel for the airport for the final departure. This is all to enable you to check out from the immigration without any hassle.
