Tourism industry workshop Lhasa in 2010December 7, 2010.
In the fall of 2010 36 guides, cooks and managers from agencies in Lhasa met for a week long workshop. Training included: Introduction to Ecotourism Concepts, Leave No Trace, Minimal impact practices in tourism, Responsible Guide Practices, Responsible Travel Practices, Customer Service Concepts, How to be a Good Host – Western Client Expectations Campsite Set-up – Client Expectations & Environmental Considerations. The workshop concluded with two different site clean ups at popular tourist site near Lhasa.
Favorite mountain range: Nyenqentanglha Mountains, The Silent Guardian
The Eastern peaks and ridges remain virtually untouched and truly isolated. Long valleys lie entrenched within grand peaks, with only nomadic communities dotting the surroundings. It is a space that one local nomad remarked “Wind dictates everything here”.
