Welcome to Tibet Culture Tour
Welcome to Tibet Culture Tour! We are a travel agency located in Xining, Qinghai, a gateway to the Kham and Amdo regions of Tibet.
Known as the Roof of the World, the Qinghai Tibetan is a massive area nearly 1/4th the size of mainland. Its average altitude of over 4000 meters makes it known to many as the earth’s “third pole”. The eternally snowcapped mountain ranges and vividly green grasslands dotted with high mountain lakes provide the natural setting for the indigenous culture of the Tibetan people. This landscape, its people, and culture, combined with a deep love for the secret and mysterious places. We are Tibetans from Qinghai and we have lot of experience to be a guide or translator for many foreigner friends.
Our travel agency has combined the best experience of our Tibetan culture and foreign staff to provide the best customer service around! Our goal is to help our customers to be clear about Tibetan knowledge and of Tibetan Culture; we can offer detailed local knowledge of Tibetan Buddhist Monasteries, culture and history.
Our Travel Agency cooperates with the Qinghai Tibetan Research Committee and we will give you the best experience in the Tibetan area. The Qinghai Tibetan Research Committee also has a Tibetan and English Language Training School in Xining. The school is helping the development of Tibetan nomadic people who don’t have yak and sheep and try to have some changes to keep the live and to make their lives easier.
We believe that if travelers would just like to see the nomads or Buddhist Monasteries there are many possible places to visit, like Mongolia or Bhutan (where they also are Tibetan Buddhists). However, we think that if you like to visit the Tibetan area you should also be given the opportunity to learn something. Each Tibetan Monastery or Region have their own culture and history; why are the monasteries here, what do they believe, what is the history of this monastery and why is famous? Every tibetan monastery has lot of stuff you can learn.
Our services include: Custom 4X4 Trips and car rental, Lhasa Permits and Air/Train tickets, Trekking/Riding Tours, Camping with Nomads, Horse Racing festival Tours, Amnye Machen Trekking Tours, Tibetan Buddhist Monasteries Tours, Tibetan traditional festivals Tours, Personal travel Services consulting and much more!
Mt Amnye Machen
The 6282m peak of Machen Kangri, or Mt Amnye Machen, is Amdo’s most sacred mountain – it’s eastern Tibet’s equivalent to Mt Kailash in western Tibet. Tibetan pilgrims travel for weeks to circumambulate the peak, believing it to be home to the protector deity Machen Pomra. The circuit’s sacred geography and wild mountain scenery make it a fantastic, though adventurous, trekking destination.
Yushu (Jyekundo) Tibet Autonomous Prefecture in southern Qinghai,Yushu is without a doubt lot of peoples favorite place. It has everything: snow-capped mountains, rivers, lakes, forests, nomads, grasslands, monasteries and most importantly...it has Tibetan people. The capital of Yushu is Jyekundo. Jyekundo is a large trading town 825kms south of Xining, the capital of Qinghai. Yushu county, where Jyekundo is located, has a mixed population of farmers and nomads.
Palpung Monastery is a Tibetan Buddhist temple in Sichuan (Kham) in the vicinity of Dergé, which originated in the 12th century and wielded considerable religious and political influence over the centuries.
The current monastery is said to have been founded in 1757 by King Denba Tsering. It is the seat of four lines of incarnate lamas, the best known being the Situ Rinpoche or Tai Situpa, as well as the Jamgon Kongtrul and Beru Khyentse.
Lhasa is the administrative capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR). Lhasa is located at the foot of Mount Gephel.
Traditionally, the city is the seat of the Dalai Lama and the capital of Tibet, and is one of the highest capitals in the world. It is the location of the Potala and Norbulingka palaces (both are included as World Heritage Sites), and in Tibetan Buddhism is regarded as the holiest centre in Tibet. Lhasa literally means "place of the gods".
