Explore Tibet Offers Adventure Travel
2013-01-23

Explore Tibet, a Lhasa-based Tibet travel agency that focuses on responsible tourism, now offers adventure tours. Travelers can bike, trek, camp and watch wildlife. Tibet’s unique geography, including the high plateau Changtang Nature Reserve and the Himalayan mountain range are ideal for adventure travel. 

  • Biking. The most popular biking route in Tibet is along the Friendship Highway, which runs from Lhasa to Kathmandu, Nepal. This 940 kilometer trip crosses several 5000 meter plus mountain passes and goes through the historic towns of Gyantse and Shigatse. This 20-day trip also includes the major sights of Tibet, including holy Lake Yamdrok and Mt. Everest. A guide and support vehicle is necessary for bicycle tours, and can be arranged through the agency.
  • Trekking and Camping. The diverse landscape of Tibet offers many different opportunities for long treks and wilderness camping. Travelers can explore nomad lands, climb rocky paths to ancient monasteries, tackle steep mountains or walk the Kailash circuit and Kailash trek deep into wilderness valleys. Trekking tours can be designed according to each group’s goals. The agency can arrange travel plans, camping gear, yak teams, horse treks, and support staff.
  • Wildlife. A variety of different species and endemic wildlife can be found in Tibet, and the best time for spotting them coincides with the high season from April to November. Most Tibet tours pass through natural areas, and bird-watching is especially good around holy lakes such as Yamdrok in western Tibet. The mountain ranges (Himalaya and Trans-himalaya) are home to wild goats, blue sheep, black and brown bears, pika, marmots and snow leopards. The plateau has herds of wild donkeys, gazelle and around 480 different species of bird. The agency can arrange bird-watching and photography tours, or supplement any overland tour with stops for spotting wildlife.

Explore Tibet is a Tibetan-run travel agency focused on responsible tourism, Tibet permit and sustainable practice.
