Though winter is not too cold in Nepal and Bhutan, but it is not a good time to visit Tibet unless you only travel to Lhasa and Shigatse. In the winter when the temperature falls below zero, the road to Namtso Lake, Mount Everest and Mount Kailash might be frozen and dangerous for driving.
Major cities like Lhasa, Kathmandu, Pokhara, Paro, Thimphu and Punakha are able to provide perfect luxury hotels with good locations, spacious rooms, delicately-equipped facilities, western breakfast and superior service. However, some other remote places may not have real hotel, but guest houses or tents. In Mount Everest and Ngari, the accommodation is really basic. There will not be accessible Wi-Fi or air-condition. Moreover, there might be no steady supply of hot water and electricity. If you plan a trekking, the accommodation is also simple, and sometimes you need to share a room with others.
