As you will see from the videos, winter travel to Lhasa and surrounding areas is a fantastic time to travel to Tibet.

Though it is cold, it’s not as cold as you may imagine. Plus, there are far fewer tourists than normal, many more Tibetan pilgrims and nomads, and lower prices.

If you’d like to travel with the same high-quality Tibetan-owned agency that Yolanda used on her trip, sign up here and we’ll introduce you, at no cost to you.
