Book a Tour to Tibet

We highly recommend booking a tour in advance, you can search international and local tour operators on our website and enquire today. Because of the size of Tibet and the rugged terrain journeys can be long and sometimes you will need a good level of health and fitness to join certain trips.

Usually you will travel in a small group in a specially designed overland vehicle and there will be lots of adventures and activities to take part in including hiking - some of the mountains in Tibet are over 15000 feet! There are a wide range of adventure treks, hikes and cycling tours available to book all year round. 

Tour guides have lots of experience and will be able to provide information and history behind the places you visit, before departing you will need to check latest safety and visa information as sometimes borders are shut to tourists.

You can search our featured tours today but please note due to visa restrictions from the Chinese government sometimes departures are not able to leave on selected dates. Sometimes it can be easier to book a China tour with an extension into Tibet.
