Destination Tibet and Tibetan Tour Company

Shangri-la, the land of snows, the roof of the world: for centuries the mysterious Buddhist kingdom of Tibet, locked away in its mountain fastness of the Himalaya, has exercised a unique hold on the imagination of the West.
Tibetan pilgrims across the country are mumbling mantras and thumbing their prayer beads in chapels heavy with the acrid smell of incense and yak butter.
For travelers, Tibet is without doubt one of the most remarkable places to visit in Asia. It offers fabulous monastery sights, breathtaking high-altitude treks, stunning views of the world’s highest mountains and one of the most likeable peoples you will ever meet. For anyone who travels with their eyes open, a visit to Tibet will be memorable, fascinating and even life-changing.

Our favorite Tibetan cultural experiences。
The smell of juniper incense, the low murmur of Tibetan chanting and warmth of butter lamps in monasteries everywhere.
Following a kora with a band of happy pilgrims or scoring a lift in the back of a pilgrim truck.
Overnight in a small monastery such as Mindroling or Drigung Til.
Repeatedly wandering the Barkhor , different every time.
A post-hike thermos of sweet tea in a crowded Tibetan teahouse.

Simple Tibetan Buddhism teaching tour。

As a child, Siddhartha the Buddha was troubled by some of the same thoughts that children today have. They wonder about birth and death. They wonder why they get sick and why grandfather died. They wonder why their wishes do not come true. Children also wonder about happiness and the beauty in nature.
Because the Buddha knew what was in the hearts of children and human kind, he taught everyone how to live a happy and peaceful life. Buddhism is not learning about strange beliefs from faraway lands. It is about looking at the thinking about our own lives. It shows us how to understand ourselves and how to cope with our daily problems.


Hi Luvia,
My girlfriend and I have just returned from a trip to Tibet and we bought it through an agency.
We had a good guide; he told us that the local Tibetan guides and drivers are normally hired by the agencies for each trip. They are somehow working freelance for the different tour operators.
We enjoyed the tour and the guide has lots of experience with travelling all over Tibet, if you are interested you can ask him for a quote, according to him he can do it cheaper than the agencies (the will not be making profit on the deal). And also he can arrange tickets, hotels, travel permission etc.
His email is:
Enjoy your trip.
