First a big Thank you to Thupten for this beautiful tour of Tibetan culture and Buddhism - we would never have got to experience this without you so we are so appreciative!! It was just so easy and nice from the beginning, you had no problems changing plans for us and making us feel comfortable. We visited a Tibetan Buddhist monastery which was so beautiful and eye opening, this was then made even more interesting after speaking to Lekshey, a monk, who sat down with us over some tea and answered all our questions! We then proceeded to see his artwork in the monastery that he was working on that blew us away, so intricate. After this we visited the Tibetan refugee settlement and were invited into a home for traditional butter tea and food. All in all it was a great afternoon full of interesting facts and lovely people. Thupten is an amazing guide with fountains of knowledge which you could listen to all day!! We hope to see you soon :)

I've extremely enjoyed this tour. It feels like Thupten knows an answer to all the questions about Tibet and Bhuddism that you have, like he knows all the questions that may pop up in your mind and answers them before you ask with a good amount of details. I wish all the guides were that knowledgable and organised. Thanks a lot!

What a wonderful experience, learning about tibetan buddhism and the experiences of tibetans living in Nepal. Thupten was incredibly knowledgeable, kind and helpful and our visit to a monastery was the highlight of our trip to Pokhara. Thank you so much!

What a great experience! Thupten, made the experience really special. He had loads of knowledge and was willing to answer any question thoroughly. The tour gave really great insight into what it has been like to be a Tibetan refugee for the past 50 years and hownthings have and have not changed. We indulged una delicious Tibetan meal at the local restaurant I. The tour Ryan village and I thoroughly enjoyed exploring the temple, medical centre and carpet weaving places around the village. The people we re really friendly, welcoming and happy to see us. I would definitely recommend this trip!
