Tibetan Caravans is a unique touring experience. A small group of Tibetans have set up this tourism business, the first one of its kind in the region, run by Tibetans actually from the area. Our intention is to create an opportunity to share their combined experiences, knowledge and love of Tibet - its’ culture, landscape, and most importanly it's people.

*All of the guides are also fluent in Tibetan, and in all regional dialects. It may surprise you to know that at this time not all Tibetans are able to speak and read their own language.
Of course using a Tibetan tour business gives you the chance to have an authentic and intimate experience of real Tibetan life and culture. And of course your tourism money goes to help Tibetans. As far as possible all staff are Tibetan, all accommodation, dining, shopping and other experiences will be with Tibetan businesses.
