As the facilities in Tibet are very basic hotels, although they look gorgeous, do not have proper facilities even in Lhasa. So in the remote areas, it is obvious that hotels may not have enough double rooms and clients some places. However, we always try to provide twin bedded rooms, especially in Xegar. Hotels that may not have bathrooms attached and could require you to use common toilet. So, you are kindly requested not to have a high expectation form the tour in terms of the facilities in the hotels.

TREKKING IN CENTRAL TIBET
Many people, who may not have time to participate on our longer treks and expeditions in Tibet, may be interested in trekking around a very beautiful countryside, within an area of about 50miles of Lhasa. Trekking in this area will offer the opportunity not only to pass crossing into the high grazing ground of the nomads but also to see village and the rural life little changed over the centuries. Thus in our new program we are offering shorter trek which will combine an overland trip to Lhasa with a six day trek. Starting at Gandan Monastery east of Lhasa the Trek will follow the pilgrim routes to Samye - Tibet's oldest monastery nestled in a most beautiful setting on the north bank of the Tsangpo (Brahmaputra) river. Driving in from Kathmandu and time spent in Lhasa will allow for good acclimatization before the trek. At the end it is probably best to fly back to Kathmandu, or on to Chengdu.
