So far, some of the youngest clients included two boys, (one is 6 and the other is 4), who were taken by their Swiss parents to EBC in June 2017. While in summer 2017, Australian parents Justin and Hu Beibei bought their 3-year-old and ten-months-old kids from Xining by train to Lhasa and visited Lhasa and Lake Yamdrok. - Check the guide to traveling to Tibet with kids.

Any recommended things to do for a family visit in Tibet?

Definitely. There are lots of things you can enjoy with your family in Tibet. If you travel with small kids and older family members, then you may focus your visit on Lhasa and its surroundings.
For example, you can travel with your family to cover the landmarks inside Lhasa city like Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple.

Or enjoy the picnic at Norbulingka Palace or go for cycling along the enchanting Lhasa River.
You may also spend one or two days to visit the turquoise Lake Yamdork or serene Lake Namtso. In summer, you can even see many Tibetan nomads on the way.

Yes, there is no problem. To foodies, in Lhasa, not only can you enjoy authentic local Tibetan cuisines like Tibetan momo, and yak noodles soup and dried yak meat, but also dine at a variety of restaurants, offering tasty Nepali, Indian, and western, and Sichuan food. For both veggies and meat lovers, your tastebuds will enjoy a real treat. To vegetarians, you also have many options. As you venture out from Lhasa to other parts of Tibet, Sichuan restaurants would be most of the dining scene.

Possible Packing List for Tibet Family Tour

Some of the biggest features of Tibet weather is the drastic change of temperature between day and night, long hours of sunshine with powerful UV light, and arid air. Therefore, you’d better bring warm headwear like beanie for the chilly wind, and dress in multiple layers so you can add or lose clothes according to a different temperature.
Thermal underwear, long-sleeve shirts, jacket, windbreaker and down jacket, jeans, etc are recommended, even in summer if you will travel to places like EBC or Namtso. You also need a pair of comfy shoes for walking and hiking. Other stuff like sun-protection gears like sunglasses, trekking hats, lip balms, and toiletries and personal medicines for cold relief, motion sickness, anti-diarrhea pills, and mountain sickness and eye drops are also recommended.
Besides, don’t forget your camera gear and extra batteries and memory cards. And crucial travel documents like passport and Tibet travel permit.

What is the best time for a family visit in Tibet?

The recommended travel time for family tours is from May to October. You can see prairie and nomads from July to August, which is the best time to visit the Tibetan countryside. Meanwhile, it’s the most comfortable time for Tibet visit since the oxygen content level is higher in the air with more moisture as well. You can enjoy the warm sunshine, snow-capped mountains, and deep blue sky.

Are the elderly and kids more likely to get altitude sickness?

Well, there is no scientific evidence that suggests the elderly or small kids are more likely to get altitude sickness. Instead, it has much to do with your genes and what you do to get acclimatized to the Tibetan Plateau.
Basically, you should avoid catching a cold before leaving for Tibet. And try to have enough time for the rest and acclimatization shortly after you land in Lhasa, instead of rushing to visit attractions. Generally, avoid the abrupt ascent in your itinerary and if possible you may get some medicines for altitude sickness after consulting the pharmacist or a doctor.

Why we need a Tibet family tour?

Tibet Vista began to provide the service for family with kids since Aug, 2010 when we had a Canada father and his two children (one is 6 years old, the other is 10 years old). Theoretically at that time, it was very inconvenient to travel to Tibet with children, but the father said the aim of this tour was to allow his children to know how spectacular the highest mountain was in the world. Travelling with your kids in Tibet is a rare chance for them to learn about Tibetan culture, living habits and varied geographical features, and experience the diversity of plants and creatures.
As the Chinese proverb goes, “Not only should one read a lot but also travel a great deal.” For kids, travelling and reading are both important ways to learn and grow. The itineraries specifically designed for family with kids involve sightseeing and interactive events, enabling you to give children a lesson of a lifetime while enjoying the beauty of Tibet.

What to see during our Tibet family tour?

In addition to must-see Palaces and monasteries, we add some landscape sightseeing, including Namtso Lake and countryside scenery, trekking experience. Besides, tourists can fully communicate with locals or orphans in our family tours. All these arrangements are just made for your need.

How to plan a Tibet family tour?

According to our experience:
1. Daily Itinerary: The itinerary is pretty flexible. We will try our best to arrange itineraries in which your kids are interested, and you will not visit too many sights each day.
2. Tour Guide: Those guides who have their own family will be preferred to guide you, because they know exactly what a travelling family need.
3. About hotels and cars: A private car is available for your travel and your privacy is strictly protected.
