We are a Local Tibetan travel agency in Lhasa.  Our agency is 100% staffed with local Tibetan tourism professionals. We only hire local Tibetan guides and other tours crews. We used service from local business only. 100% of the travel money goes to local Tibetan families where you are visiting. We use 20% of the net profit into Environmental conservative projects with local governments and individuals.

One of our managers is certified Humanity Supply Chain management from by fritz institute. We also work closely with individuals from Tibetan Village project, Tibet Eco Travel initiatives and Local Tibet Red Cross society and other NGOs.
    • We plan a tree for every three tours.
      Every spring we plant trees for every three tours we organize in Tibet. Tibet’s weather is very harsh for a young sapling to grow with a help. So we would buy the trees and ask local farmers to adopt trees. We Tibetan consider planting a tree helps themselves in holistically. So far are we are very successful in planting trees against the small number of tours we organize. We hope in future we will work closely with local government to plan trees with their help.
    • Smaller group size
      We do not believe in touristy tours for Environmental Impact. Traveling in groups of small numbers has less impact on committed in an area than traveling in the 60s to 70s people together. So all our tours are less than 12 people normal road travel and less for trekking tours
    • Trekking tours and environmental care in the wilderness of Tibet
      During your trekking in Tibet, you will be walking across a very fragile ecosystem.  We do take extra care in our trekking tours preventing environmental effects.

Following are how are take care of our environment our trekking tours.

  1. We nothing leave nothing behind.
    We make sure we take all our rubbish and leave nothing behind.
  2. We protect the grassland
    A little destruction on Tibet’s fragile environment is irreversible. So, in the trekking tours we will not make drainage surrounding your tent, rather we will provide trekkers with a better tent with bathtub style floors to prevent rainwater getting into your tent. We will not dig the grassland and put small tent to make a toilet. Even when we try to the put the grass back, it is not the same. So when you are answering your nature called please enjoy the nature. Maybe you are you will not enjoy the natures call in the wilderness for sometimes.
  3. Collecting the garbage along the way.
    We have a saying in Tibet, if you can’t help, don’t harm. Here is our helping part. We always extra yaks carrying the Garbages, our yak men will be collecting while waiting for the clients at the campsite. Yak man walks faster than all and they have a free time at the camp. While cook prepares for meals and drinks, We pay yaks men’s incentives in collecting the rubbish around the camp.

We always identify our business as a social enterprise. We dedicate 30% of our annual net profit to Social and environmental projects. Every winter we will buy a huge amount of winter cloth from the market for small children to donate to schools. In this way, we are providing the warm winter cloth for children and encouraging them to go to school.

Any purchase related to business, we do with the local business. We also encourage travelers to purchase the products directly from the local producer, which is why we always trees for guide to take the visitor to the local handicraft centers and producers.

Whenever there is someone need for medical help. Our company staff member would gather money for it. The management has decided how much ever is donated by our staff, Company will double that amount by donating the equal amount, what has been collected from the staff’s members. And all our staffs are very generous.

We always inform all our clients about local customs, beliefs, and ethics. So that it would be easier for our home visit, and culture programs.
