TIBET TOURS

A Tibet tour is truly a once in a lifetime experience as we take you to the roof of the world, perched high in the Himalayan Mountains and stretching out across the Tibetan Plateau - famous for its stunning landscapes, historic architecture and unique Tibetan culture - leaving you with the ultimate Tibetan travel experience.

When you visit Tibet, you can expect to witness some of the highest mountains in the world - including a share of Mount Everest, and a long and deeply rooted Buddhist culture - this beautiful but harsh country makes an interesting and challenging destination to visit.

A Tibet tour has a long list of ancient and fascinating places to visit. You will spend your time visiting monasteries, temples, ancient villages, crystal-clear lakes while enjoying endless mountain views.

The capital city Lhasa, which means "Holy Land" is the heart of the country and offers plenty to see and do, including a trip to the spectacular Potala Palace, walking tours along Barkhor Street, and a visit to Drepung Monastery - one of the largest monasteries on the planet.

Excursions out of Lhasa include a visit to Shigatse, the second-largest city in Tibet and beautifully ornate Tashilhunpo Monastery.

When you book a Tibet tour with Encounters Travel, you will experience gorgeous lakes nestled in hidden valleys, high altitude passes that connect the many winding river valleys, dotted traditional villages and ornate monasteries all of which makes a perfect place to stop and mingle with the friendly locals.

Our Tibet tour itineraries offer activities for every type of traveller - such as trekking, rafting and mountain biking.

Treks to Everest Base camp are popular and a visit to the famous Rongbuk monastery is a highlight of the tour.

With a large number of world-class rafting rivers, Tibet has plenty of challenging river trips available, and mountain biking is also a popular activity to try.

TOUR REVIEWS

There was a lot of communication from the beginning. The encounters staff was very responsive and the tour guide was great and very accommodating. Encounters was also able to help me with last minute changes to my itinerary while I was on the trip.

Ant provided excellent service. He always responded as quickly as he could, attending to the questions I had for him. He was also very patient and pleasant. I depended on his knowledge and service to make the trip.
I liked the service and the tour guide & driver on the tour. They were professional and provided very good service. I thought 1-2 hotels on the trip were not quite 4-star. It also happened that this group of people was always late for schedule and our walk pace was too slow. It really needs the guide to make people on schedule and be punctual for the activity. Overall I think the time management of this tour needs improvement.

I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
Everything was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and liked that we were interested in what he was telling us. We were lucky to be in a group with like minded people who also wanted to stay in places longer of which our guide accommodated. Only negative thing was the sitting train. Best to just take the flying option. Train was not bad but has no services, no alcohol, and breakfast was all carbs and an egg. Egypt really seems to like their breads and pastries....

My experience with Encounters was excellent from start to finish. The Tour Guide, Sheriff, was the most passionate, enthusiastic and professional guide I have ever had on a tour and his love for Egypt really made me enjoy my time so much more.
I was cautious about arriving in Egypt given the current circumstances about the country, but felt safer that I did living in London as soon as I arrived. All of the Encounters staff are very professional.

I purchased my rid tour as part of a group coupon. Is obituary hesitant but my tour was great. The staff at Encounters were professional and helpful. I had a lot of questions but no one made me feel like a pest. Good experience.
I always wanted to go to Morocco and I finally got to go last September. I'm glad I chose this tour group. They were professional and attentive. Good times!
