It is important to remember that the vast majority of Tibet is not within a couple minutes of the highway and to truly see Tibet as most Tibetans experience it we must WALK. Wind Horse stafff pioneered commercial trekking in Tibet over 15 years ago and some of these routes are offered only by Wind Horse. Each of these itineraries involves at least a few days of trekking but they vary considerably from the three day circumambulation of Mt. Kailash to the extended ten-days trekking to the Kangshung face of Everest. There are unlimited possibilities for trekking in Tibet and we are more than happy to suggest and put together new trips.
Conditions are variable and sometimes harsh at high altitude so we do our best to make our treks as comfortable as possible. We always arrange portage (usually yaks or horses) so only need to carry a day pack with minimal snacks, water and accessories. We plan daily stages to suit the abilities of the group and to allow for proper acclimatization.
We encourage you to look at a guidebook to gain more information (Gary McCue’s Trekking in Tibet,describes a wide, but by no means exhaustive, variety of treks). Tibet Wind Horse Adventure is proud of our heritage and we look forward to introducing Tibet without the roads.
