Overview
This full Day Tour is a unique opportunity to spend time in a local Tibetan community with our professional Tibetan tour guide to learn about Tibet, Tibetan people, buddhism, food, its culture, art and craft. Our tours are typically base on Tibetan educational and cultural tour. Our tour guide Mr. Thupten himself is a Tibetan, who was born & grew up in one of the Tibetan village in Pokhara. Therefore, he has lots of information regarding Tibetan people living in Nepal and how they have well kept their Tibetan language & their buddhist culture. Therefore we encourage our guests to ask as many questions as they have regarding Tibetan people and their culture.

We did the full day tour with Thupten during our trip to Nepal in March. He picked us up from our hotel which was around 20 mins from the lakeside area and we visited numerous sights during the tour. Unfortunately, our visit coincided with the Tibetan New Year's celebration so
