About
This Morning Tibetan cultural Tour is a unique opportunity to spend time in a local Tibetan community with our professional Tibetan tour guide to learn about Tibet, Tibetan people, buddhism, food, its culture, art and craft. Our tours are typically base on educational and Tibetan cultural tour. Our tour guide Mr. Thupten himself is a Tibetan, who was born & grew up in one of the Tibetan village in Pokhara. Therefore, he has lots of information regarding Tibetan people living in Nepal and how they have well kept their Tibetan language & their buddhist culture. Therefore we encourage our guests to ask as many questions as they have regarding Tibetan people and their culture.

Great tour - highly recommended
Took the morning tour to Tashi Ling Tibetan Village. Was collected from our hotel promptly and greeted with a white scarf as a mark of respect. Comfortable drive with plenty of mineral water. The guide, Thupten, was so well informed and gave very clear explanations all through the tour. Everything was so professional and the service excellent. I highly recommend that you add this to your itinerary when you visit Pokhara!

Can I give it more stars?
This has indeed been the highlight of our trip in Nepal. I have always been fascinated by the Tibetan culture. My husband is a history buff... this became the perfect option for both of us.

What an amazing day I must say. Thupten is the most caring, considerate and passionate guide I have met. He went above and beyond to make us comfortable. The love for Tibet can be felt when he talks. We went for morning chants, breakfast in a local home, spoke to a monk, tried to understand tidbits of Buddhism, saw refugee camps, met women who make carpets, understood the history in detail, met a Tibetan doctor and finally ate a scrumptious Tibetan meal.

I can assure you that if you are in Pokhara, you MUST do this tour. He will make it such a lovely experience and you will go home with beautiful memories.

Morning Tour Tibetan Villages
Apr 2019 • Couples
We found this tour on a walk through Pokhara, which made us interested. During the morning tour, Thupten Gyatso showed us through different Tibetan villages, which have prospered a lot during the last decades. The infrastructure comprises not only houses and shops, but also schools, temples and monasteries where the Tibetan culture continues to live on, explained by Thupten with deep knowledge, heart and soul. It was a wonderful insight into a different world!

Amazing tour!
Myself and boyfriend did the early morning tour (5am-2pm) which includes everything on their leaflets: Buddhist prayer chanting, breakfast in a Tibetan home, discussions with a Buddhist monk, visits to 2 x refugee camps and more! It was an incredible tour, our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and a captivating story-teller. We were immediately sucked into the world he painted for us of the Tibetans fleeing Tibet and the amazing guidance of the Dalai Lama. I didn’t know anything about his teaching before this tour, and it has opened my eyes! Totally worth the $65, I feel much more connected and enriched from my visit to Nepal after this tour.

Highlight of Pokhara
This was a highlight of our stay in Pokhara. Fascinating, informative and moving tour. Thupten is a wonderful and very knowledgeable guide, giving us an inside view on the refugee camps. He picked us up from the hotel, we started by visiting morning prayers at the monastery, then had breakfast in a Tibetan family home. Many activities, a good length, one highlight was getting diagnosis from a Tibetan doctor and getting to ask him questions about Tibetan medicine. Highly recommended.

Morning Tibetan Cultural Tour
Nov 2018 • Solo
Thupten is incredibly knowledgeable about Tibetan history, the culture of its people and the Tibetan refugees from his first hand experience of living in the refugee camps with his family. Thupten's personality is a beautiful blend of a great sense of humor and a truth telling "tell it like it is" mentality. My eyes were opened wide being educated about the Tibetan culture and their Buddhist religion. It will have you want to advocate for basic human rights for all who are being suppressed by governments, religions and other people worldwide. This tour is a MUST to be added to your itinerary when in Pokhara!
