Overview
This sunrise half Day Morning 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 Tibetan, who was born & grew up in one of the Tibetan village around Pokhara valley. Therefore, he has lots of information to share regarding Tibetan people living in Nepal and how the Tibetan people has 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.

A perfect way to learn about Tibetan culture and history without actually going to Tibet. The tour guide is a super nice man and an incredible storyteller with a wealth of knowledge about Tibet. Cannot recommend more!

I am so, so glad I booked this tour on a whim! Thupten is an incredible tour guide, providing a wealth of knowledge about Tibet, Tibetans in Nepal, the Dalai Lama, and Tibetan Buddhism, yet he stays humble and open to questions and deep discussion. It was easy to communicate

If you'd like an introduction into Tibetan culture, life circumstances in Nepal, etc. this is a must. I can't recommend this tour highly enough. Thupten speaks with great knowledge and insight. Best guided tour I've ever been on.
