Greetings of 2011

  • Khampa Horse Festival


  • Tibetan New Year Festival


  • Shaman Festival in Tibet


Follow The Trail of Tea Caravan

The ancient Tea Horse Route was once the main means of transporting goods from China to Tibet and India. While Tibet is one of the relatively untouched areas of the world, the eastern part of Tibet, bordering Yunnan Province, is the most untouched area of Tibet. Rich with virgin forests and crystal blue lakes, this formerly inaccessible route offers spectacular scenery as well as an opportunity to come into contact with the village cultures of Yunnan and Tibet. The long and winding drive on unpaved roads is a bit arduous, but will offer an unforgettable experience of a unique cultural region.

Booking and Cancellation

It is best to book your trip as early as possible, in order to ensure we have sufficient time to arrange your hotel rooms, flights, and transportation. This is particularly the case in the high tourist season of summer.

A deposit of 30% of the total trip cost is required when you make the final booking for your trip. (See below under Cancellations for information on conditions under which a deposit may be returned.)  

Balance of Payment
The remaining 70% of trip costs are due 30 days prior to your departure. Depending on the number of applicants, we may set an early or later payment date.  If the balance of payment is not received by the requested date, we reserve the right to cancel your booking without prior notice.

Cancellation received less than 60 days prior to the departure date will result in loss of deposit. If you cancel your trip more than 60 days before the departure date, we will return your deposit.

In the event of a natural disaster or political unrest in the travel region or the client's place of residence prior to the client's arrival in China, trip cancellation may be required. In this event, the client's deposit will be returned. In this event, if the client has paid for the trip in full, the full amount paid will be returned to the client.

If, however, a natural disaster or political unrest occurs after the client arrives in the travel region, no refund will be made to the client.

Air ticket cancellation charges will be as per the policy of concerned airlines.

After the trip commences, any part of unused services for whatever reason will not be refunded or compensated in any form.
