Stories from Tibetan Tour Guide

They are a few things from the past that always bring good memories even after 14-15 years.      

I would like to share my motorbike ride at Mount Everest North Face base camp region to New Tingri with a 100KM ride through the high pass  Gawu la (5200M) in a rainy season 2003 with a traveler from Europe.

During the rainy weather, our Motorbike got slipped a few times near the high pass because of the unpaved and bumpy road, it was freezing cold because of the weather. Still, such memories are once in a lifetime.

Another experience was when I spend sixteen months at Mount Everest North Face base camp in our family Yak hair tea tent, I haven't got a chance to listen to my favorite Western music for nearly two years.

No internet, no computer, no television, and not even good electricity, and at that time, I used to feel that I was very unlucky and unhappy but nowadays such memories are again once-in-a-lifetime experiences and such memories bring back good vibes.

Nowadays the road is paved all the way to the Mount Everest North Face base camp. There are 4G-5G, WIFI and very good electricity, which is making the life of local people much easier. 

Another story is when I went to Mount Kailash (Kang Rinpoche in Tibetan)  five times during 2005 as a tour guide, I still remember the time when I was a Tour Guide with five Travelers from five different nations including German, Ireland, Isreal, British, and Spain.

Our vehicle tire got flat eight times on the way to Mount Kailash. One time I was chanting in the vehicle to my precious Maha Guru Rinpoche since it was March and no other tourists so if our tire gets flat and get stuck on the way, it will be for days, the main problem is we don't have enough food with us, they were no villages or not even a shepherd nearby.

When I was chanting in front of the front seat with the German Traveler who was watching me peacefully. He and a few other Travelers were amazed that the tire got flat finally when we reached the Guesthouse in Saga town after a 200km drive. I completely believe that my prayers have been answered, and for that, I would like to Thank Maha Guru Rinpoche for the great blessings. 

Now the road to Mount Kailash is paved and it is making the life of local people much easier, still, those were one of the special stories I can share with the world nowadays with lots of good memories.

With the above stories being shared by Tibet Travelers Manager Tenzin Dhondup, Tibet Travelers would like to welcome all Travelers around the world to travel to Tibet now. Contact Tibet Travelers for Traveler's upcoming journey to Tibet.
