Climb to the roof of the world

It’s a rare traveler who hasn’t dreamed of visiting Tibet. For centuries it was the “furthest goal of travel,” and it remains one of the most beguiling places on earth. We pioneered travel to Tibet some 30 years ago, and our deep affection for the vast sceneries and engaging people of the great plateau remains intense. We'd love to introduce you deeply, carefully to its impossibly high peaks and its cultural treasures. Perhaps you too will have the sense, as you experience monks beating drums, blowing horns, and chanting harmoniously with the backdrop of the Himalaya, that there are forces greater than man in play around us.

Tibet with GeoEx

Our long experience in Tibet and our decades of partnership with our Tibetan associates allow us to craft visits to the sublime monasteries and temples of Lhasa, Shigatse, and Gyantse—or, if you prefer, treks to the rarely visited East Face of Everest or to Lake Namsto. You may time your trip with one of Tibet's many summer festivals, perhaps entering the joyous fray of Samye Dolde (to see elaborate ritual dances), Shoton (to watch the unfurling of a giant thangka), or Litang (known for its horse racing). We can also take you into the forests, alpine vistas, and wondrously remote ­villages of Kham, or arrange trips that focus on Buddhist pilgrimage sites and monasteries. With three decades of Tibet exploration under our belt and the first permits to walk beyond Lhasa, we have access to journeys you can't imagine—much less organize—alone.
