Tourists mostly travel to Lhasa in summer, but it is also a good choice to go to Lhasa in winter. The local government has issued a series of preferential tourism policies to publicize its unique winter charm. These policies will be in effect until March 15th, according to Tibet's tourism development department.

 

Many scenic spots in the capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region offer free or discounted tickets in winter, including the Potala Palace and the Norbulingka Summer Palace. The cost of all “star-rated" international and boutique hotels in Tibet, as well as flights, will be reduced by at least half compared to the peak tourist season.

 

This is the third year since Lhasa kicked off its winter-tourism policy. Lhasa’s cultural tourism industry chain is gradually improving. The tourism industry has become an important way for farmers and herders to increase their income. It has received 2.46 million domestic and overseas tourists from Nov 1th, 2018, to March 15th, 2019, an increase of 84.2 percent year-on-year.

 

Lhasa is the capital of China's Tibet Autonomous Region and the second most populous urban area on the Tibetan Plateau after Xining, at an altitude of 3,656 meters. It contains many culturally significant Tibetan Buddhist sites such as the Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple and Norbulingka Summer Palace. In the cold winter, people wear national costumes made of sheepskin to firmly stick to their posts. This is the spirit of the Tibetan people to pass on for thousands of years.
