I planned my trip with Great Tibet Travels last year (2019) during July. This trip has changed my life for the better. The tour company and the tour guide Darghye were wonderful. During my 3 day trek, Darghye walked beside me to the most part and gave commentary. This man is knowledgeable and knows what he is talking about. Darghye kept an eye on all members on the tour and periodically asked us how we are doing altitude sickness wise. Remember while doing the trek, think positive and take baby steps and this may change your life for the better. Regarding the tour company they were kind enough to upgrade my hotel location at a couple of locations for no extra charge. Trek Planning - Fitness: I am a New Yorker and moderately fit. Before going on this trip, never in my life walked more than 5 miles a day. I started off with walking 9K to 10K steps per day at a moderate pace for a few weeks. I took it to the next level by walking around central park - this takes about 16K steps in about 3.5 hours and this I used to do every weekend. Since we lived in a high raised building, every day I used to climb stairs (sometimes 10 floors and sometimes 20 floors). Maybe a few times I walked on the treadmill in the Gym with inclination set to 14 for about 15 minutes. Trek Planning - Medication: I scheduled an appointment with my PCP - got the prescription for diamox and antibiotics. I also took with me tylenol, motrin, a miniverion of first aid kit. Trek Planning - General: You can read as much as you want on fitness but one should learn to know and listen to ones’ body. I carried some nuts and granola bars and do not forget ponchos Trek - Altitude Sickness: Diamox will do its job and you do your job. Remember to take it easy the first few days, no need to run or get excited, let me body adapt. My mantra initially was to walk like a snail, take small steps (remember to listen to your body and keep your mind in a positive state). I did get headaches and took tylenol.

The arrangement route is nice, with 3 days at Lhasa for acclimatization. Both the tour guide Lobsang and driver Paksang were excellent in service, helping the visitor with smile, good advice, good information sharing, always provide helping hand when needed. I can see that they carry out their duty with passion from the heart. The itinerary timing was good, with an exception that 2 of our team member have some problem with the breathing when arrived at EBC. After couple of hour, we decided to leave EBC on the same day we reach to ensure the 2 members safety. The guide provides few options for decision making. Overall, it is an excellent tour and I would recommend to my friends GTT if they want to come to visit Tibet.

I can hardly think of the right words to thank you for a fantastic vacation in Tibet. I’m sorting out my photos, souvenirs. I come across a tiny piece of paper or a receipt, I remember a wonderful place we went, some warm & friendly person we met or something fascinating that we saw in Tibet. Our guide Dargye is a good guide, he speaks English very well, and he has full knowledge of Buddhism and local culture. We learned a lot from him. Again, thank you for everything. I recommended Great Tibet Tour to my friends.

My wife and I took the 7 day Lhasa-Mt. Everest-Kathmandu tour with Great Tibet Tour in early December. December although low season was actually a good time for a tour of Tibet. There were very few other western tourists and the temperature wasn’t as cold as I anticipated. The tour was amazing and we appreciate Great Tibet Tours for putting together such a smooth and exciting trip. Admittedly, it seems that most of the companies running tours in Tibet have same itinerary, we would run into other groups at the same restaurant, and the guides would hang out together. We only have the best things to say about Great Tibet Tours. The guide (Lopsang) and driver we’re friendly and knowledgeable, the hotels were excellent, and the itinerary was a good mix of culture/history and nature. We were the only ones to spend a frigid night at the Everest guest house once all the Chinese day trippers left. a very cold adventure! You do spend a lot of time in a vehicle on some but the scenery is incredible and you can stop whenever. You definitely need an experienced tour group to arrange the details as there are a lot of legal requirements traveling around Tibet . Thanks to Great Tibet Tours everything went smoothly. One last thing, although not technically part of the tour, the drive from the Nepal border to Kathmandu was definitely a highlight. Great Tibet Tours arranged a seamless transfer at the border. Nepal is totally different from Tibet and another reason to take this tour!

We had a private tour booked for our family and I have to say it was great for us. Everything was well organized from pick up to drop off. Lobsang our Tour guide was very welcoming and warm hearted. He is very experienced and knew everything we asked. I for sure can recommend this travel agency.
