Normally, the double room in Tibetan star-level hotel has an independent bathroom with hot water. The water is heated by the solar water heater. If the weather is not good, the water will be colder.
When you arrive in Tibet, you should avoid taking a shower. Because you may catch a cold and increase the consumption of physical strength.
