Tibet Eco-Tours offers a variety of tours. We specialize in organizing tours of Tibet's major rivers: the Yangtze, Yellow, Mekong, Brahmaputra, Salween and Indus rivers. Since 40 percent of the world's population depends on water that originates from Tibetan plateau, we hope to educate the world about these headwaters. Travelers will have opportunities to view some of the rarest mammals on the planet; Wild Yak, Tibetan Antelope and Tibetan Kiang. Also the Tibetan plateau is home to 473 species of birds, such as the black-necked crane, and we offer seasonal birding tours. All tours will encounter the country's unique culture and faith. We will visit Buddhist holy monasteries and experience daily life with the Tibetan people. Tour prices range from $1,400.00 to $6,000.00 per person, depending upon the destination, route, duration, and special services requested.
Join us on an unforgettable journey to Tibet. We invite you to explore this land’s exquisite beauty and encounter its people. Their unique cultural heritage incorporates Buddhist spirituality and emphasizes a deep respect for life. The Tibetan Plateau is often called the “Roof of the World.” Averaging 12,000 feet above sea level, it sustains a beautiful, unique, and fragile ecosystem. Tibet is more than barren tundra, snow and ice. Changes in elevation and topography create every major biome on earth, with an astonishing variety of plants and animals. White-crowned Himalayan summits give way to alpine meadows dotted with lakes. The rushing waters of the world’s highest river, the Yarlong Tsangpo, carve the planet’s deepest gorge, at its base a subtropical jungle.

We provide funds for Tibetan ecological education and conservation; supports a school that protects and fosters Tibetan culture and art, suport local Tibetan businesses and communities; and protect the fragile land that you visit.
