Lhasa Guide Training Workshop 2011

November 8, 2011.

In October 2011, 14 Lhasa based guides attended a workshop focusing on introducing ecotourism concepts among local tour guides.  Hosted by a local travel agent guides from various agencies attended teaching sessions including, customer service, Leave No Trace, Remote Area First Aid, and Itinerary Design.  A Tibetan Doctor from the Lhasa Medical Centre taught the first aid class. The group spent a half day out at Drak Yerpa learning about campsite set-up.  The group observed different types of camping equipment with a focus on the most practical types of equipment for expeditions on the Tibetan Plateau.  Proper kitchen set-up, camp hygiene, and waste management was also demonstrated.  The group concluded the training with an afternoon site cleanup at the Drak Yerpa Monastery.  The did a fine effort – filling an entire truck with garbage left by visitors to the site.
