Hot Scenic Spots

Tibet lies in the north-east of the Himalayas. It is special not only for the spectacular nature scenery, also the unique local customs. For a lot of people, Tibet is remote and inaccessible. But once you are here, you would know it’s a magical place, it is alien to common experiences. The beauty of Tibet is impossible to describe in words. Stop trying to define it, come and immerse yourself in it.

Hi Daniel. We are already on our way back to Shanghai. We would like to thank you for the great trip we had. Our guide Jampa and our driver did an excellent job. They are both very recommendable! We enjoyed the trip despite the altitude discomfort we experienced during the first 3 days. Thank you!

I highly recommend this agency. I travelled with other 2 couples who booked through different agencies and they paid a lot more to have less assistance, same hotels/tour/guide/car, less flexibility and no travel insurance included.
