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

Conscientious in early communication; knowledgeable, humorous and caring tour guides; an exemplary itinerary that was well organized yet flexible; an overall extraordinary experience. I'd recommend them enthusiastically.

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
We had a wonderful time and great memories. We felt safe the whole time and would recommend this trip to anyone of any age as long as you can walk a lot. They are with you from arrival to departure and any problems that arose the guides would try their best to solve. They also showed remarkable patience for other people in other groups we saw that were acting like idiots.

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!

I had an amazing time on the trip. Everything was incredibly well organized and planned out to a tee. Our tour guide, Big Mo, was amazing and super knowledgeable. I couldn't have imagined a better trip to Egypt!
Excellent

Excellent from the initial planning to every step along the way on the trip! Worry free in every way! Islam, Hussein and Mahmoud were the greatest! Please check out my review on Trip Advisor! FIve stars from this girl!
