You will have to adjust in very primitive guesthouses in towns like Tingri, Lhatse, Rongbuk, Nyalam, Namtso Lake. Most of these guesthouses of have dorm style beds you will get a private room, but you have to pay extra. Guesthouses provide futon or foam mattress and blan- kets or quilts but some travelers will feel more comfortable with their own sleep- ing bags. Do not expect western style toilet and shower in guesthouse. A tradi- tional Tibetan toilet is simply a pit on earth. Woman traveler will find skirt comfortable for Tibetan pit toilet pur- pose. You have to have your own toilet paper. If by chance, hot shower is avail- able, you will have to pay extra for using it but in the climate of Tibet, one hardly thinks of taking cloths off.
