Lobsang Wangdu and Yolanda O’Bannon of YoWangdu Experience Tibet answer your Tibet travel questions. To ask questions join our All Things Tibet Facebook group, and ask your questions there. We answer as many of your Tibet travel questions as possible with short videos.
Since no independent travel is allowed to Tibet and you must work with a travel agency, you want to be sure to choose a Tibetan-owned agency, which hires Tibetan guides only. The simplest way to do this is ask us to connect you to a reliable Tibetan-owned travel agent to plan a great trip for you that also supports the local Tibetan economy and culture. (Note to our Indian friends: Sorry, our agents cannot assist Indian nationals going to Kailash in groups less than 50.)
