We were a group of friends visiting various parts of Tibet, from Lasha down south to the border of Nepal, the 3 days Kora around sacred Mount Kailash and the reign of Guge. All the way we had David as our guide and he really made the trip as smooth and interesting as it could get.
David has a most extensive knowledge of Buddhism, both Tibetan and Nepalese, being a fervent Buddhist himself, so all visits to the monasteries were thoroughly explained.
During the tough (highest point as at 5630m above sea level) trek around Mount Kailash, were everyone had his own speed and rhythm, he was attentive that all were fine and arranged stops at tea houses for rests along the way. He also managed to quickly reschedule our trek 1 day in advance due to possible block by the police for over crowds at the Sagadawa festival.
We said goodbye to David in Ali and flew back to Lasha by airplane where we had a guide from another company and, boy, were we glad we had David during our trip!
Unlike the other guide he is very attentive, very customer oriented, very educated and knowledgeable! Go for him if you decide to come to Tibet.
I will certainly use him again if I decide to go on any other areas he covers with his tours

This was a great trip organised by a great guide, Ngawang Dhundup. As well as arranging visits to the main attractions Ngawang also responded to my curiosoity about a range of things taking me to Tibetan artisan workshops, cafes that serve yak butter tea, Tibetan cooking classes and also the University. He patiently answered all my questions about Tibetan Buddhism and about the history of Tibet. He also took great care to make sure I adapted well to the altitude and was good company. I was very fortunate to have him as a guide.

Two weeks of real escape! The trip was perfectly organized so we could adapt our bodies for cora round the holy mountain. Meanwhile we’ve had a unique chance to visit monastery’s along the way. We were lucky to have our guide David next to us as he was endless source of precious information on Buddhism and ancient tibetien traditions. The only thing to regret was that we had to leave this magic place. Looking forward to coming back soon.

That was my first trip to Tibet so I had a lot of expectations. I was lucky to be introduced to that amazing place by a very great person and professional guide David. I had that opportunity to see it through the local vision and also to have my own impressions thanks to David
