Lhasa Cultural Tour

Duration: 5 Days   |   PhotosDownload

Lhasa Cultural tour: For centuries Western travelers were interested in exploring the forbidden land, sometimes enduring months or even years of hardship, only to fail in their mission to reach Lhasa. Their accounts of what they saw and heard along the way have only added to the charm of this magical land.

Traveling to Tibet is no longer burdened with danger and hardship as in years gone by. Unlike those early adventures, we can take you to Tibet in comfort and safety. However, the relatively easy access to the country does by no way diminish the excitement of making it to The Roof of the World and the wonders that you will experience. We would like to invite you to have a wonderful and memorable time in Tibet. 

In order for us to quote you the cost, please write to us with the number of members in your group, the type of vehicles you want and the category of hotels you would like to stay in.
