How about the admission fees for the major attractions in Tibet? I got that they cut ticket prices last winter to boost winter tourism. Have they increased the prices now?

Currently, it is still the low travels season for local tourism. The local Tourism Bureau slashed ticket prices for most major local tourist sites last October. It was the first time that local authority has drastically cut its ticket prices for almost all its tourist attractions. The reduced prices remain effective from October 20 to April 20.

Ticket prices at most natural and cultural spots in Lhasa, Nyingchi and Shigatse (Xigaze) were cut by half. The ticket price of the Baksum Tso Lake was reduced from CNY 100 to CNY 50. The admission fee for the Yarlong Tsangpo (Brahmaputra) River decreased from CNY 150 to CNY 75.

However, the ticket price of the Potala Palace will remain CNY 100 till April 30, 2009. The admission fee for the Jokhang Temple in Lhasa was reduced from CNY 70 to CNY 35. The ticket prices of the Drepung and the Sera Monasteries is CNY 25 each.
