Welcome to a new member of the Tibet Eco Travel Collective 2015December 2, 2015.
Welcome to Lobsang from Tibet Experience as a new member of the collective!
Lobsang: “When I was young there was no plastic in the area where I grew up. I did not even have shoes, just boots made of yak skin in winter. So when plastic packaging and goods came I had no idea about the effect on nature and I would just throw everything on the ground or in the river. When I became a guide it were the Western tourists who taught me that it is bad for nature to just throw rubbish away. Now my pockets are always full of packaging waiting to be thrown in the bin from things I ate or used or what I found in nature.”
Favorite journey: Lhasa to Kathmandu Overland
Lhasa to Kathmandu Overland is one of the world greatest overland journey’s. However despite its fame and the development that has sprung up in the towns along the way it remains a truly incredible trip. I love approaching Shegar and catching my first glimpse of Everest poking its head up above the range, crossing the Pang La with the Himalayan range spread out in front of me as far as I can see and winding down the never ending switchbacks to the Nepal.more
