Tibet Enters into Winter Tour Season since November

Tibet Autonomous Region is now promoting its “Winter Tour in Tibet” campaign, which is being held from this year’s Nov. 1 to Mar. 31, 2012, said Wang Songping, director of the regional tourism bureau.

“The winter scenery in Tibet is of magical splendor compared to summer days. The sunshine is more pure and transparent, and the lakes are bluer and surrounded by primeval forest,” he said, adding that wintertime Tibet is waiting to be discovered.

Lhasa, capital of China’s Tibet, is no longer a high-altitude city in forbidding winter, but a fascinating tourist attraction. The city’s wintery charms are attracting more and more tourists from across the globe.

“I feel great because the trees, leaves and everything else in this season offer a colorful world,” said Huang Li, a tourist from south China’s Guangdong province. “The sunshine there was beautiful and made you feel warm and comfortable. Anyway, this is a good season to travel in Tibet, and it is awesome.”

In the next five months, Tibet will offer a series of tempting tourist products to push forward its winter travel.
