    • incredible Itinerary of Tibet Group Tour

      Hi Hemanta ! Our trip in Tibet was so beautiful. Special mention to our tibetan guide, Betun. She’s a fantastic professional and human being. She has changed the guest house in Tingri for a hotel. The Tingri guest house is in fact unusable due to the cold and extremely precarious conditions. However the itinerary was incredible.  Many thanks to you and Ram for this wonderful experience. Best regards, Mario
