Lhasa Surroundings FAQ

  • What to notice when visiting the Potala Palace?

    When visiting the Potala Palace, there is a time limit, so be sure to follow the tour guide's arrangement. The guide will arrange a reasonable time to let everyone know as much as possible about the Potala Palace’s culture and history. Those who like to take pictures should also note that the best place to shoot the Potala Palace is the Potala Palace Square. There is the Yaowang Mountain Observation Platform on the west, where the sunset and night views of the Potala Palace are particularly good. In the middle of the square, the front of the Palace is suitable for taking photos of tourists. On the east side of the square, there is a man-made lake. The reflection of the palace from the lake is particularly beautiful. After entering the palace, you can take pictures in all places except the east palace. Your guide will remind you in advance where you cannot take pictures

    Here are some more things to note when visiting the Potala Palace:

    • Everyone must bring passport
    • You cannot wear skirts, shorts, or slippers
    • All sunscreens, facial oils and gas liquid sprays are not allowed, including oxygen
    • Lighters, matches, drinks, and mineral water are not allowed (you can bring your own glass)
  • Does it support mobile pay in Tibet?

    At present, doing payment via mobile is ok for most areas in Tibet. It supports WeChat Pay and Alipay. Some public roadside toilets are definitely not available for mobile pay, so you need to bring some cash.

  • How about the mobile phone signal in Tibet?

    Mobile phone signal is very good in 90%’s area of Tibet. China Mobile Communications is mobile operator with the best signal in TIbet.

    From the airport pickup time to the train station drop of, we enjoyed a five star service. I was welcome in a Tibetan way with Hada and Tibetan greetings, and our guide was careful with my itinerary and flight schedule, very thoughtful.

    Wir haben zuvor einige Touren und Agenturen verglichen. Natürlich ist es schwierig auf die Entfernung und mit den doch wenigen Rezessionen einen Überblick zu bekommen, sind aber sehr froh uns letztendlich für diese Agentur und Route entschieden zu haben.

    Von Anfang hat uns unsere Ansprechpartnerin Claire bei allen Fragen geholfen - inkl. Visaantrag und Einreiseerlaubnis. Wir haben wirklich etliche Mails hin und her geschrieben und wurden immer fürsorglich behandelt.

    Vor Ort wurden wir am Flughafen empfangen und unsere Guides waren alle sehr nett. Die Ausflüge super interessant und man hat einen tollen Einblick bekommen. Das Programm war nicht zu viel und nicht zu wenig, wirklich toll gemacht!! Die Hotels waren weit besser als wir erwartet haben. Wir haben oft Tips für Restaurants oder bestimmte Gerichte bekommen. Es gab überhaupt keine Probleme bei Ausflügen, Organisation oder den etlichen Kontrollen im Land. Wir wurden selbst noch bis hinter die Passkontrollen an der Grenze zu Nepal begleitet. Erst als unser Guide wirklich nicht weiter durfte, haben wir uns verabschiedet.

    Die Gruppen waren nett gemischt und die Wagen alle europäischer Standard.

    Wir würden die Agentur und die Route jedem empfehlen!

    Liebe Grüße und vielen Dank für eine unvergessliche Reise!

    Wir konnten wunderbare Tage auf dem Dach der Welt verbringen - und wenn es heute erneut die Möglichkeit geben würde - Ja ich würde diese Reise noch einmal unternehmen. Dennoch sind es große Anstrengungen und die Touren im Auto sind lang. 2 Tage dauert die Autotour zum BaseCamp - Achtung - bei der Anreise überquert man bereits die ersten 3 Pässe mit über 5000m - daher sollte eine gesundheitliche Abwägung oberste Priorität haben. Tolle Organisation mit AMY - ich kann es nur jeden empfehlen, da Sie wirklich Sehr gut und schnell auf alle Anfragen, Anregungen und Änderungen eingeht. Ein Tip nach Möglichkeit mit der Tourguidin Kelsan Droma reisen - Auch Sie versteht es wunderbar Ihr Land näher zu bringen und lebt so positiv.
