Responsible Tourism in Tibet

It is our aim to conserve the local environment and improve the welfare of the Tibetan people, so please join us in practicing sustainable and responsible tourism. We teach Leave-No-Trace principles and conduct site clean-ups after trekking and camping. We also employ local Tibetans as guides, patronize local Tibetan businesses, and purchase supplies directly from farmers and nomads or in local markets. On our Nomad Adventures, we give back to nomad families by donating warm clothing and fresh produce. We invest in the next generation of Tibetans by supporting the Kumbum Shambaling Orphange School in Amdo and in Lhasa.


Your health and safety are our priority. Our expert guides are trained in First Aid and carry cell phones to communicate with our headquarters.  It is recommended that you arrange for medical and travel insurance in your home country before traveling to Tibet.
