“One of the main goals is introducing our beautiful land and it’s people to tourists by hiring only locals and by making our contribution to the local communities by providing education opportunities and making donation to disadvantaged groups. From the start of our business, we aim to provide more opportunities to people in local community since we feel it is our responsibility towards our community.”

Kham Voyage is dedicated to provide rewarding tours where clients can have an in-depth experience of the local natural environment, culture, spirituality and lifestyle.”

Favorite experience: Canyons of Guge Kingdom

After driving across the vast Tibetan plateau, I think one of the more amazing experiences in Tibet is to climb to the top of the high pass past Kailash and drop into the deep canyons of the Guge Kingdom, completely unexpected, very dramatic, eroded and ochre-colored cliffs spreading as far as the eye can see. And then dropping down to 3500 meters, in Tibet!
