Which Hotels in Lhasa Are Available in Winter

August,29 2018 BY Master Kungga Dundruk 0 COMMENTS

Due to the few tourists in winter, a lot of hotels in Lhasa will be closed from December to next April. But most hotels in Lhasa and nearly all main tourist attractions remain open during winter for many Tibetan pilgrims will be there. Economic hotels like New Mandala Hotel, Kyri Hotel, Yak Hotel, Tibet Hotel, Thangka Hotel and Lhasa Hotel, and cheap hostels like Dongcuo International Youth Hostel and Phuntsok Kasang International Youth Hostel are available in winter. Of course, if you want a luxury hotel, you can choose Four Points Sheraton Lhasa Hotel which is a five star hotel in Lhasa and also open in winter.

However, the poor business and low room usage rate sometimes make these hotels reduce the service quality on hot water supply, breakfast, heater or heating to cut down running cost. If you travel in Winter and choose guesthouse, 3 star, 4 star hotel, you may encounter such kind of problem. Therefore, it is advisable to choose five star hotels when you are traveling in Lhasa in winter.

During winter, you can also have a great of fun for Tibetan New Year, the grandest festival of Tibet, is held each year either in late January or early February. Tibetans from all regions of Tibet arrive in Lhasa beginning in December for pilgrimage. Tibetans often will spend the winter months in Lhasa and the surrounding area visiting all of the major monasteries and temples. Literally tens of thousands of Tibetans are in the region during this time. Lhasa looks and feels far more "Tibetan" during this time than during the summer high season. There is nothing like being in Lhasa during the biggest holiday celebration in Tibet.
