Owner description: Tibet Highland Tours, though not the largest company around, we are among the most experienced around. Our office managers have been working in tourism in Tibet for over 20 years and know all areas of Tibet extremely well. The company was started by local Tibetans, most of whom had been working for over 20 years already as tour guides, managers, and route builders. We can work with you to create the perfect itinerary suited specifically for you. Unlike many travel agencies that arrange tours to Tibet, we are not based in Beijing, Chengdu or Shanghai. We are based right in the heart of Lhasa, less than a 1 minute walk from Barkhor Square. All of our office staff, guides and drivers are Tibetans who are intimately familiar with Tibetan culture, language and religion. This gives us an advantage over most companies arranging travel to Tibet. Our company is not out just to make money. Our goal is to give back to as many poor Tibetan communities as possible. Several of our office staff are from remote, poor villages at the base of the Himalaya Mountains. A portion from each tour goes towards projects that we carry out in these communities.

This is my second time to Tibet, the first trip was in 1997. This time I took the advice of friends and booked with Tibet Highland Tours. From helping me to get the right permits, to knowing all the good, affordable, places to eatand stay Tibet Highland Tours took care of it all. I was with a group that was on a shoe string budget, and they treated us so well. I can't wait until I can come back to this amazingly beautiful land. You can be sure I won't use any other company next time.
