About
This half Day Tibetan cultural Tour is a unique opportunity to spend time in a local Tibetan community with our professional Tibetan tour guide to learn about Tibet, Tibetan people, buddhism, food, its culture, art and craft. Our tours are typically base on educational and Tibetan cultural tour. Our tour guide Mr. Thupten himself is a Tibetan, who was born grew up in one of the Tibetan village in Pokhara. Therefore, he has lots of information regarding Tibetan people living in Nepal and how they have well kept their Tibetan language & their buddhist culture. Therefore we encourage our guests to ask as many questions as they have regarding Tibetan people and their culture.

We have no words to describe how amazing was the tour that Thupten offered us today! This is an amazing opportunity to get to know Tibetans history and Thupten is explaining everything so well. We could have listened to him all day long. We definetely recommend his program and we will definetely come back to see him if we ever return to Pokhara! Thank you Thupten!

A MUST IN POKHARA
Jun 2019 • Friends
Definitely an eye opening experience, a must if you are in Nepal, Thupten is an incredible guide and teacher, he has so many rich stories and knowledge to share with us and he is definitely generous of his time. We were eager to learn more and more about the tibetan culture and Thupten never failed to deliver. Activities ranged from arts and craft, to meeting a tibetan doctor to learning about the history of tibetan refugees and many more. We did the half day tour, but if you guys have time to squeeze in the whole day tour in your schedule, we would highly recommend it. Thank you for everything !!
