Customised tours in Tibet are our specialty - our aim is to design a trip to best suit your interests, time-frame and budget.
As you know, travel in Tibet is permit-restricted so some things (eg. public transport) are simply not possible, but within the bounds of what is permissable (and practicable) we aim to make this YOUR trip.
So - let us know what you want to see, where you want to go ... and we will work with you to design and plan your ideal Tibet trip.

In cities - Lhasa and the common 'gateway' cities of Beijing, Xi’an, Chengdu and Kathmandu - accommodation is available at all levels - from 2 to 5 star.
We generally use clean, comfortable 3-star accommodations in these cities, with location being the primary criteria.

In smaller towns (Gyantse, Shigatse, Tsetang, Sakya) top range accommodations do not exist, but hotels have comfortable rooms with private facilities (2 to 3 star)

In Tsada, Chiu Gompa, Lake Namtso, generally twin share rooms are available, although tiolets are shared. Generally there are no shower facilities, however good public showers are available in Saga, Tsada, Darchen...

In remoter areas accommodation is more basic. In guest houses on the way to Kailash only multi-share rooms may be available in some places (Darchen, Kailash kora). Common pit-toilets, no showers and no running water.


Transport in Tibet is entirely by private vehicle (tourists may not use public transport). We offer a range of comfortable mini-vans, mid-size busses and larger coaches depending on group size, for travel in central Tibet, overland to the Kathmandu border and to Mount Kailash & Guge.
4WD vehicles are not necessary for most areas and most of these vehicles were de-licensed for tourism at the beginning of 2015. They are used for trips to remoter areas of east and western Tibet, but not eslewhere unless specifically requested as they are more expensive than other vehicle options.
