An intriguing land with exceptional scenery and friendly people, Tibet offers a taste of adventure. Although traditional Tibetan culture has been much diluted by the influence of China, our itinerary ideas focus on authentic Tibetan culture, traditions and experiences and we use Tibetan guides to give you a true insight into everyday life in the region.
Each itinerary can be tailored to your interests to create a bespoke tour of the country and will be arranged by a specialist who knows Tibet well and can assist with logistics such as route planning and entry permits, as well as advising on finding authentic accommodation and experiences.
