Overview

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.

Try to get in contact personally with a guy called Passang. He is one of the people there managing this small great Tibetan run company. Highly recommendable!

Hi, I'm planning to visit Tibet for the very first time. I would like to join the 8-day tour. I'm coming from the USA. What have you learned from your visit? What items that I would need while in Tibet aside from personal use? I'm not picky with food; how much lunches and dinners cost in Tibet? Where did you purchase their currency... the Yuan? Where did you purchase your plane ticket, and to which airport? I'm likely to visit alone; is there anything that I should know about traveling alone? I really appreciate your time reading my post. Thank you so much and I hope you'll have a wonderful day =)))

Usually most of the clients they prefer to have diamox after prescription from doctor. Also Hongjintian would be good for altitude sickness as well.
