Welcome to new Tibet Eco Travel Collective members 2016July 2, 2016.
Welcome to the following new members of the Tibet Eco Travel Collective:
Penpa Tsering – Easy Tibet Tours
“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.”
Nyima Tashi – Kham Voyage
“The Kham region has diverse landscapes, culture, languages and spiritual practices that are yet to be known to the majority of tourists traveling to the Tibetan Plateau regions. 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.”
Dawa Tsering – Tibet Shambhala Adventure
“We pioneered in giving training to young disadvantaged Tibetans in cooking and hospitality. We look after our staff and provide them with extra incentives and insurance including medical insurance, commercial insurance, pension insurance, and industrial injury insurance.”
Favorite "hidden" temple: Meru Nyingma temple
Tucked behind the Jokhang in Lhasa is Meru Nyingma temple, the former residence of the Tibetan State Oracle. Few tourists have discovered it; you’ll find yourself in the company of smiling, prayer wheel-spinning pilgrims, welcoming you into this fascinating little temple.more
