I think most of you may not believe at the beginning, but after you read my reasons you will surprise with these unveiled secrets.
1. Winter is the best season for local Tibetan pilgrims to travel and carry their spiritual activities, as during this time all the nomads and farmers are less busy and it became part of their tradition to travel during the winter months, therefore in Lhasa and around, you will experience very lively Tibet with purely locals.
2. Less tourist and less crowds, as many travelers avoid winter to travel Tibet, so there is no more tourist in Tibet and you have a great experience of travelling somewhere forbidden kingdom with full of wonders.
3. Cheaper but the same quality, as there are less tourists going there, so most of flights, trains, hotels and transportations are cheaper than rest of the year.
