Our pick of the spectacular Tibetan & Southwest China travel highlights for 2013
We are based in Shangrila, which is in NW Yunnan, bordering the Tibet Autonomous Region and Sichuan Province. In Chinese it is also called Zhongdian. Tibetans call it Gyalthang. We organize a variety of adventure travel and sight-seeing activities including trekking, botanical trips, culture expeditions and media trips. These trips cover geographical areas in northwest Yunnan and beyond. We are also known for our overland packages or tailor made packages to west Tibet, Qinghai, Gansu, Sichuan Tibetan regions and northwest China.
You can also read more about us and our trips at our main website.
We design trails with specific aims. These include but are not limited to direct exposure to the minority cultures of an area , attendance at festive events and visits to locations of historical and cultural interest. As a rule we tend to opt for experience over entertainment. It's in our nature to push the envelope. So, in the imperfect art of balancing pace and interest, difficulty and comfort, the goal is to keep your curiosity tweaked while we ensure you enjoy your day to day travel experience. Ultimately, at the very least, we hope that you leave with more understanding and a faster heartbeat (but lower blood pressure) than when you arrived.
