What Our Customers Say

"Tsering has been very helpful and very knowledgeable. I commend him and wish him well in his future. Thangka Hotel's location was nice. The only comment is that the cleaners were not very good in the respect that they did not provide more soap, toilet paper and water every day. Potala Palace was amazing as well as the Namtso Lake and snow moutains."
