  • I am so happy I experienced this offering. Imagine sitting in a room with 50 monks at 6 in the morning as they chanted in unison in a Tibetan Village at a Buddhist Monestary. That was just the...  more »

  • I did a full day tour with Tibetan Encounter and had a great and meaningful day. Thupten is a great guide with a lot of knowledge and even more passion. I can really recommend this tour because it teaches so much about tibetans, their history, beliefs, struggles, joys, food, etc.
  • Thupten does not only know a lot about the history of Tibetan refugees, he also knows how to tell it in a very intriguing way... highly recommended!
  • I did the full day tour with Thupten. The guide will make you feel at ease throughout the day. All the explanations are so detailed that you feel you're living the life of a tibetan refugee. I recommend it without a glimpse of hesitation.
  • Just finished an amazing and eye opening full day tour of the Tibetan villages and monasteries. I learned so much. Thupten is very knowledgeable, well spoken, and a great guide. The food was also excellent. Best momos of my life! I also had the chance to hear Buddhist monks chanting, received a medical consultation from a Tibetan doctor, and had the chance to see traditional crafts such as carpet making. We also visited a typical Tibetan home and I had a chance to have a one on one Q and A with a Buddhist monk. Very worthwhile tour and so important to understand the history of the Tibetan refugees in Nepal and Tibet in general. Anyone who comes to Nepal should take this tour.
  • My husband and I went on this tour and were blown away..... The plight of the Tibetan Refugees will be forever in our minds now, the knowledge we have gained from this tour is unfathomable. Very very interesting the Tibetan and Buddhist way of living. Our Guide Thupten Gyatso is very passionate and sincere and it was such a blessing to hear his stories. Would highly recommend the full day tour.
