What Our Customers Say

"Thank you for showing us Tibet-it's people, its traditions, its religion, and its country-side. The moutains are beautiful beyond words, and Everest was worth every bump+twist in the road. The people were interesting to watch, as were their customs+practices. We learned many new things and had our first taste of yak-butter tea, yak cheese & yak steak. The yak is clearly a versatile animal : )"
