When coming to Litang bear in mind that this is not a very touristic area. The hostels are very simple, roads are scary and bumping and sometimes it is difficult to find mini-vans to get out of town. But these are exactly what make the area still preserved. The landscape is amazing and the Tibetan village around the monastery is astonishing. I agree that single rooms are too expensive here , but dorms in Tibetan style in Potala inn is the best option. I had great time there and meeting Medok was a high point. She is really sweet! But if you are looking for comfort, then you better go to places like Shangri-la.
