In 2002, three young Tibet men, from a big Kham Tibetan family, engaged themselves as Tibet tour guides with great passion and burning desire to show their hometown to travelers from all over the world through their eyes. In the past years, they took thousands travelers to explore Tibet by bike, by hiking, by motorbike, by trekking, etc. They were getting familiar with every corner of this mysterious land and knew what the most essential parts were. Every year, they took over 1,000 travelers fulfill their dreams to travel Tibet and the number of their customers raises fast in recent years.
However, when they guided more and more tourists across the globe, they realized that many travelers to Tibet paid more for an unauthentic Tibet travel experience. And many questions from the travelers could be only answered by them, the real local guides who really know the destination.
How to visit three or four sites fluently in one day?
What is the best angle to take photos of the Potala Palace?
What is the best time to see the pilgrims in front of the Jokhang Temple?
How is the road condition to Mount Everest?
What should be prepared for a Mount Kailash Kora?
So they decided to run their own business and launched Tibettour.org to ensure an authentic lifetime travel experience for more tourists by traveling Tibet with the local guide.
Now, we are not only cousins from a big family, but also the closest partners for our lifelong career.
We aim to offer you an authentic experience with a reasonable itinerary in the REAL Tibet while traveling Tibet with local guides. Not only take you to the must-see travel attractions, we also take you to many less-known local destinations where few travelers go. Perhaps you'll find yourself admiring the handiwork at a women's weaving cooperative, or lending a hand during the local rice harvest, or sing a song with children in a Tibet orphanage, or enjoy a private cooking in a Tibet family. What we offer you are always the unique experience you can get then travel with us, the local Tibetan guides.
