Why choose Tibet Travelers as Travel Agent?
Traveling to Tibet is a once-in-a-lifetime journey for most people. Here are some reasons why you should choose us for your journey to Tibet:
- Tibet travelers don’t just focus on making money, but we also focus on helping local people.
Recently I met a local Tibetan student from a poor farming village in the countryside who was still in high school. Because of the economic strain in the family, this student needed to stay home and work during the holiday time so that his older sister can finish university with the hopes that she can get a good job to help support the family.
The student told me that it causes tremendous stress on him to take responsibility for his entire family when he should be in school himself. Tibet Travelers is helping to cover the costs of a few months university tuition costs to help ease the financial burden this family is under. This is just one of the first steps we have in our plan to help communities across Tibet. We have even bigger plans for the future.
2. In reality, many of these companies are spending a high amount of money each month on SEO on Google and Yahoo. This cost is passed onto their clients in the way of higher tour costs. Tibet Travelers relies more on positive reviews and word-of-mouth recommendations. As we spend little on advertising, our journey costs are lower and still high quality.
3. Many agencies offer budget tours, however, the quality of the tour is very low. Often times the guide has poor English, the vehicle is older and unclean and these companies often place clients in dirty hotels. These companies rarely offer any solution when their clients make complaints about the travel conditions as they care only about money and care little about quality.
With Tibet Travelers, we take care of each and every client. We meet each client personally at the train station or airport and have clients stay at clean and comfortable hotels during their time in Tibet. For just slightly more than the cheapest budget agency, the difference in traveling with Tibet Travelers is huge!

This shows that the Tibet Travelers cares for every traveler who travels to Tibet with us, meeting the General Manager gives a chance to fix the problem right away and it gives a big trust that you have met the person who is in charge. This can also make communication much easier. This can also help to know who owns the travel agency since nowadays many nonlocals have Tibetan names, many Tibetans prefer western name. If the General Manager doesn't care for each and every one of travelers who choose his or her travel agency then there is no any reasons to book with them.

Many travel agency General Managers in Tibet have almost no experience in actually exploring Tibet. The information comes only from guidebooks, rather than actual on-the-ground experience. Many of these companies have sales managers who never grew up in Tibet and know little about its culture and language. They lack English skills and cannot properly explain what to expect when traveling to Tibet.
With Tibet Travelers, all of our managers, guides and drivers are from Tibet and are experts on the region. The General Manager of Tibet Travelers is a Tibetan man named Tenzin Dhondup. He was born and raised in the shadow of Mt Everest and has been working in tourism in Tibet since 2003. He has traveled Tibet extensively to almost all areas. He has worked as a tour guide, porter and translator on climbing expeditions and has done the circuit of Mt Kailash numerous times. He knows how important ethical travel is and loves working with clients to show them his native homeland region.
