Tibet Wind Horse Adventure (Lung-ta) began in 1997. Unlike some of the bigger companies in Tibet we are not simply interested in running high-volume tours through set itineraries. We specialize in customized itineraries, special projects and true adventure tourism.
We run trips all over Tibetan areas of China but specialize in customized and adventure itineraries in Central Tibet. We combine specialist local knowledge from local staff with skills and experience from international expertise to run the best trips you’ll find on offer in Tibet. There are lots of companies offering tours to Tibet but the standard of service is highly variable. We strive to offer the highest level of service you’ll find in Tibet and can customize any trip to suit your expectations.
We are proud of our reputation in Tibet and urge you to ask specifically about Tibet Wind Horse Adventure. (Watch out….some copy cat companies are operating under very similar names to us!) We have experience with an entire range of clients, from individual scholars with obscure research goals to large groups with tight international schedules. We are also reviewed on New York Times , Lonely Planet and a article from the Sinocism China Newsletter 09.04.14

Our Cook Team
Because our sole purpose is to show you the most authentic part of Tibet, so the best way to explore is to experience the life in the remote and most preserved areas, we will take you to some of the most incredible places that you can imagine, away from the city crowed, closer to the beautiful villagers and nomads. At this same time you’ll not lose the comfort of lodging. We’ll set up a comfortable campsite for you, including sleeping, dinning, toilet and shower tent. Your cook that travels with you will prepare some of the most delicious home cooked hot dishes, while you are enjoying in the nature.
