I am especially interested in Tibetan cultural dances and songs, so I have also participated in our school dance and performance club.

Guiding tours is my profession, as well as my passion. I have 6 years of experience in guiding tours of varying sizes and characters, ranging from easy city tours to trekking adventures. It is my pleasure to share our culture, history, tradition, and religion which learned from our ancestors and experienced since our childhood. This is one of the main reasons why I love my work. My knowledge about my country and my extensive travels with Western tourists enable me to offer authentic experiences to our esteemed customers. It is my pleasure to share our culture and tradition with all my friends coming from different parts of the world.  Being part of Explore Tibet, I appreciate the initiation of Responsible Tourism for the welfare of our society and our environment as a whole.

My words to our customers: “I will make you feel at home even though you are far away from your own home. Come with us to explore our Tibet and enjoy the authentic experiences.”
