2013 'Adventure' Travels To Tibet
We travel to some rather remote spots that are literally "off the beaten track"! One of the things that we find these days is that people have a sense of adventure and want to visit places that show the "Real Tibet" rather than the well worn tourist tracks.
Our aim is to show you those places less travelled where you can stay with a Tibetan family, stay in a Tibetan Guest House or even spend the night in a Monastery. We cater for the adventurist spirit. The good thing is that age is not a barrier, we have travelled with anything from a young 18 year old to our oldest who was 80 years young.
Most of our package trips those are result of recommendations from our previous clients. We specifically design our trips to meet our client's requirement, through years of our working experiences specializing in Tibet. Tailor-made tours are one of our priorities by knowing what requirements of our customer as well as understanding requirements of the Tibetan culture and traditions.
Contact us to discuss your travel plans and we will show you an adventure that you will remember the rest of your life.

How do we travel? The government laws do not permit organized volunteers from abroad in certain Tibetan areas including the TAR. Therefore, we offer volun-tour trips that blend service with sightseeing, and our participants travel to China on regular tourist visas. When we travel to villages, we use local, authorized travel agencies to organize our service trips to Kham and the T.A.R..
True to our mission, we travel responsibly to minimize the exploitation of Tibet’s fragile natural and cultural landscape. We arrange for lodging and meals in local guesthouses and restaurants to facilitate cultural exchange and support community businesses. Furthermore, we encourage our guests to purchase necessities and goods from village markets and shops, and ask everyone to use recyclable materials, pack up their own rubbish, and educate others on responsible travel.
Why do volunteers have to pay? Organizing effective, cost-efficient, and socially responsible international volunteer service presents a challenge in any part of the world –particularly in Tibet. Volunteer funds help maintain our nonprofit, and are used in all of the structures, logistics, and support necessary to ensure project safety and success. We use funds to hire local coordinators and interpreters, rent vehicles, meet with community members, secure travel permits and liability insurance, and provide staff to support your project goals from the day we receive your inquiry until long after you have finished your journey.
Arrival / Departure: Our trips officially begin and end at the Chengdu in Sichuan, China. Upon confirming your desire to travel with us, we will then discuss preparation of travelling at altitude and all other essential information that you will need including instructions on how to apply for a visa to China, a packing list, a recommended reading list, day-to-day itinerary, detailed description of volunteer work, and health and safety information, etc.
Who should join? Anyone with a sense of adventure and free spirit.
We have a trip scheduled for September 2013, but places are filling fast, so first in will be in for the trip of a lifetime.
