Normally the high season in Tibet is July, August. If you come in this season, the tour is more expensive because of expensive tourism vehicle, hotel, guide and driver service, Potala Palace becomes touristy as well. If you do come in summer for Tibet Kailash trip, you can save big money by choosing your own departures for the group tours. Even though, as an insider, we still feel many agencies’s prices are sky high and you do not have to book everything in the package, and you do not have to fix your departure date exactly as on those websites, because, as said previously, you should find many optional departures easily and design your own group tour in your way!
