Tibet Highland Tours, though not the largest company around, we are among the most experienced around. Our office managers have been working in tourism in Tibet for over 20 years and know all areas of Tibet extremely well. The company was started by local Tibetans, most of whom had been working for over 20 years already as tour guides, managers, and route builders. We can work with you to create the perfect itinerary suited specifically for you. Unlike many travel agencies that arrange tours to Tibet, we are not based in Beijing, Chengdu or Shanghai. We are based right in the heart of Lhasa, less than a 1 minute walk from Barkhor Square. All of our office staff, guides and drivers are Tibetans who are intimately familiar with Tibetan culture, language and religion. This gives us an advantage over most companies arranging travel to Tibet. Our company is not out just to make money. Our goal is to give back to as many poor Tibetan communities as possible. Several of our office staff are from remote, poor villages at the base of the Himalaya Mountains. A portion from each tour goes towards projects that we carry out in these communities.

Recently I returned from Lhasa. I was on a tour of 4 days with Tibet Highland Tour. I literally have nothing to say but my sincere appreciation and respect towards their team. Everything was arranged in a very tibetan style to make you experience and learn their culture. The accommodations, meals, transportations and guides were all arranged flawlessly. I cannot... More

I did an 8-day trip with my girlfriend and had a fantastic time. Our group was four people, and we all got along quite well. Typically many tours operate with a minimum number of people, but that didn't apply to our tour. We got to see all the tourist attractions and had a great time with Tenzin the tour guide... More

Mr. Passang is absolutely flawless when it comes to email correspondence and solving practicalities. Mr. Tenzin is a great and understanding guide with amazing patience. He is really worthy of a long holiday. Mr. Driver is fantastic for keeping us safe on the roads. I'm frankly stunned that he didn't fall asleep while driving. The hotels in Lhasa and Shigatse...

My boyfriend and I joined the 8 day tour to Mt Everest. We received a warm welcome with a Hada and a dinner at The family kitchen. Even if only 4 ppl ended up joining tour, Tibetan Highland Tours still made it work for us... it was very lucky that four of us had a lot in common and we... More

For an authentic Tibetan experience I wanted to find a local Tibetan agency to show me the true face of Tibet. This is not as straightforward as you might think as many pretend to be local but aren’t actually. This is not the case for Tibet Highland Tours (THT), I highly recommend this small agency for your adventure as well.... More

Tibet holds a very special place in our heart as it was where I proposed to my now fiance! Our trip there was made truly memorable for not only this reason but also our excellent guide Tenzin, who openly explained the history and present situation with Tibet China relations, plus gave us untold insight to the strong Buddhist believes of...

I strongly recommend Tibet Highland Tours, which is ONE OF THE FEW truly Tibetan owned travel agencies, for organising and running your trip in Tibet (most of the travel agencies are not Tibetan; they tell you that they employ Tibetans but they are not truly local). I did the 8 day tour that visits Everest BC. I found the service... More
