Is it worth visiting Huitengxile at the end of November for some days? Can I get accomodation that time?
Personally, I do not think November is a good time to visit Huitengxile. There is no grass there, and the freezing weather chilled people to the bone, and it is difficult to find hotels there at this period.
Hope it helps ;) Robert Hui Replied on 2011-10-27
