We are interested in photos of mountains, rivers, birds, mammals, architecture, art, street life, etc. If your photos are selected to add to our library, you must sign a release form.

It does not necessarily need to be of professional quality. We may use your video in promotion for Tibet Eco Tours, or it may become part of a documentary film for Tibetan Ecology Foundation.

Tibetan Eco-Tours will arrange a tree planting tour. You will buy trees and plant them. It will then be cared for by Lobsang Dargye Centurier and Trees For Tibet. If you would like to volunteer to plant trees please let us know. Tibet Eco-Tour will make special arrangements for you with your tour. We do NOT charge an additional fee.
Cleaning River Bank
Tibet Eco-Tours will organize groups of people to clean up river banks. We ask you to join us in this program. The region’s population is growing, and there is not a culture of recycling. Cleaning up river banks is a practical service to the community. It also will set an example and bring awareness of this issue to the local people.
If you are a writer we would like you to write about the environment and ecology of Tibet. During the tour you may keep notes. If your work is selected, you must sign a release form. TEF will credit you for your work and not change your content.
If you have a special skill, then you may propose a volunteer mission relating to your work. We cannot promise that we can arrange anything, but we are certainly interested in discussing any ideas that you have.
