Beautiful cave murals in West Tibet

Thanks for this favorite place.

We are the only company in Tibet that specializes in art tours. Many caves in West Tibet have murals from the 11th to 17th century. Most of those caves are still in very good condition and our guides are trained to interpret the art and the history of these sites, including the influence from Indian, Nepalese or Chinese art on Tibet artists. We help the local communities to protect these art and architectural treasures and rich cultural heritage by raising awareness and working with local governments and communities to make sure these sites will still be there to enjoy for Tibet’s future generations. Central Tibet also has many monasteries with beautiful murals and we can arrange itineraries based on your interest and time.
