With increasing demand for up-market travel in Tibet and new, higher grade hotels opening we are offering a selection of short tours using the best available facilities.

But a word of warning: Whilst undeniably an exotic destination, Tibet cannot provide 5-star travel outside Lhasa, and even 4-star is not an option outside central Tibet (Lhasa, Shigatse, Tsetang). Transport is generally by land cruiser, not limousine and outside Lhasa even the top hotels are not at international standards.
In Lhasa the St Regis & Shangri-La provide the top facilities. Four Points Sheraton good 4 star.

Tibet, including Lhasa, despite rapid change is still a remote and developing region and cannot provide the level of luxury you can expect in other destinations. This is a world and culture to experience and enjoy first hand. Your flexibility and sense of adventure are essential packing.
