Our cultural tours are designed to introduce the unique culture and history of Tibet in as convenient and comfortable way possible. We concentrate on areas that are of historical interest and easily accessible by road. Some trips involve minimal camping so as to visit areas where hotel or guest house facilities are non-existent or sub-standard. Our cultural tours often include short hikes but only within your abilities. As we are a Tibetan company, you always have a Tibetan guide who can show you the “behind the scenes” side of Tibetan life and open many cultural doors that non-Tibetans cannot.
The trips listed from this page are some of our more standard trips to give you an idea of the range of possibilities, times, and costs involved with coming to Tibet. However we can link all Tibetan areas including Qinghi Sichuan and Yunnan to a trip to Central Tibet. We encourage you to use these trips as templates but adapt them to you special interests or discuss entirely new itineraries with us.
If you have specific cultural interests let us know and we can facilitate your journey. We recommend Gyurme Dorje’s Tibet Handbook, (www. footprint-handbooks.co.uk) to get more detailed information on different areas of Tibet.
