Tibet holidays

Tibet holidays

Known as the ‘Roof of the World’, Tibet is home to towering mountains, stunning scenery and a warm and welcoming people. Bound by Buddhism, it has been occupied by China since 1949 and is a country besieged by change. Much of traditional Tibet – its territory, its architecture, and, crucially, its people – has been suppressed and subjugated, but backing tourism in traditional Tibet holidays is a sure fire way to show your support for the nation.

Tibet cultural tours
Outstanding guides. Excellent (more)frank ingram
A real adventure. The whole trip was thoroughly enjoyable. The highlights for us were Lhasa Old Town, the Potala Palace and Mount Everest. (more)Christopher Ashley-Jones
It was my dream to travel to Tibet and I wasn’t disappointed... (more)izabela spero

Himalayan cultural tours, Bhutan, Tibet and Nepal
Nepal desperately needs more tourists to help support the local economy. Don't be put off by the recent earthquake - most of the major sights are still well worth visiting. (more)Stuart Bowden
The whole trip was memorable and exciting but one highlight was the hike up to the Tiger's Nest Monastery in Bhutan - quite a grueling walk for a Sunday afternoon but what memories! Also, visiting Lhasa in February when pilgrims from the furthest reaches of Tibet were there was a joy. (more)Carolynn Peace
The most memorable part of the holiday was seeing new places and meeting new people from completely new cultures. (more)Dietrich Yap

Tibet holiday
Very good, enjoyable, hard work but always worth it. (more)Victoria Hart
See Mt. Everest from Base Camp. Excellent. Group leader Gorpal was terrific. (more)Brian Dahlstedt

Yarlung Valley tour in Tibet
Memorable parts? Everything: unbelievable scenery; what's left of an amazing culture of architecture, music, dance, and Buddhist sculpture and painting; stoic Tibetan people. It's a stunningly and unremittingly harsh yet astoundingly beautiful environment. We had a great guide, excellent driver: this got us through the bureaucratic and security barriers with ease. They did all they could to assist us to see we saw what we wanted to see. Tips? Do it. It's one of the world's great experiences,... (more)Alan Wall

Beijing to Kathmandu tours, Mountains & Monasteries
All of the holiday was fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the train journey from Beijing to Lhasa. The visit to the nunnery was fun. There was nothing on my trip that I didn't enjoy so it's hard to choose 1 thing I enjoyed most. (more)Jules Palmer
Excellent....Go with an open mind, an attitude of adventure. It is a different country. You will not find the same facilities as at home. The food is different. But it's all part of the adventure. (more)Yoginee Patel
It was very memorable and exciting, and a good idea to go on a tour through a country that would be difficult to navigate alone. (more)Laura Tomlinson
From £2560 - £3560 excluding flights
Tibet Everest Base Camp tour
Memorable parts? Seeing the Himalaya Mountains, seeing Everest so close up at base camp, TIBET, was amazing. The beautiful city of Lhasa, the debating monks in the monasteries. The scenery overall was breathtaking. Tips? We travelled as a family of 4, with kids aged 13 and 11. Be prepared for the effects of the high altitude, although it doesn't stop you from doing everything on the trip, it does make you feel tired and headachy. Also, pray for good weather in July/August, we were... (more)Alan Levy

Mount Kailash trekking holiday in Tibet
Highly recommended. The company was very efficient in their organisation and everything went seamlessly. (more)David Conway
Our holiday organisers took great care of us. Throughout they took great care of us - we felt that we were getting great personal service from a company that were treating us like friends. (more)Neil Small
Trust this agent who quietly and with much courtesy arranged this link up. (more)David Elsey

Small group holiday to Tibet
Memorable parts? I was actually the last couple of days i.e. Everest base camp although personally, too much was spent there. Short walk coming down from base camp to the border town - the views were spectacular. Short walk through old village one afternoon. Tips? Do not let the thought of altitude effect you too much - it is normal to be short of breathe, experience a little headaches etc. Listen to your own body and team leader. Try out the local cuisines. Local benefits? No... (more)Sharon Oo
