Value for money:

While the trip of a lifetime is priceless, we know value is a vital aspect for those deciding which tour to choose.

When comparing tour prices, be sure to compare like to like. Our tours are designed to ensure that our customers experience all the culture, history, and beauty that Tibet has to offer, and at a reasonable price.

A great way to ensure the lowest possible price is to invite more people on the trip. The more people in a group, the lower the price per person. For example, for a typical 5-day Lhasa and Lake Namtso tour: the one-person price is about $1010; the two-person price will be only $633 per person. These prices are an indication of how much money you can save by travelling with more people. (We recommend you join our group tour if you are traveling alone. Please contact our travel consultant for more information)

Booking early is also an easy way to ensure the best rate! We highly recommend you contact us at least 1 month before your planned departure date.
