We had an amazing time in Western Sichuan with Tibetan Connection. The feel is extremely authentic and we had the chance to experience local customs from up close. Derge is really interesting and it does feel like a privilege to be there. The route to reach this area is scenic and well worth the hours spent in the car. The trekking is set in a beautiful mountain area with green pastureland and snow mountains in the distance. Tibetan Connection can really upgrade your trekking experience to the next level: each day is planned in detail and camping is made easier by using high-performance tents and tasty dinners cooked on the spot. Overall it has been a highly recommended adventure we hope all mountain lovers will choose to experience!!"

It was first time for us to travel with agency, driver and guide during a trek. All was discovery.
We really enjoyed our trip with you, all thing was well prepared. After, some tips to improve but all was nice. For first days, there was too many hours of driving (before we arrive to Xiahe), we just stop to see something and then drive again all day long. Time transportation was really more than announced. However, our driver Lobsang was very nice, good driver, helpful, take good care of us, speak really good English, it was really nice to meet him ! The Zhagana Valley visit was not so prepared before we arrived and then we didn’t really know what to do. That’s all. Thanks again for this nice trip !

Thank you very much Tp to you and the guys. I really appreciated my first (and not last trip) to Qinghai. I go away with wonderful memories.
Take care of yourself and keep in touch

The Karang Trek is an excellent opportunity to visit, at a slow pace, a barely touched mountain area not far from Xining. The trek itself is fairly easy and not demanding, compared to other treks in the area, but still it offers dramatic views and amazing camping sites. Tibetan Connections organized our trek perfectly, adjusting it to our requests and going even beyond expectations. It was our second time in Amdo Tibet with Tibetan Connections and it was totally worth it. Highly recommended!

Hi! Yes our trip was amazing thanks! We had a great time, beautiful landscape. And Lobsang was great as well thanks.
If I have to give you a feedback, it would be maybe to send a map of the trip when you send the itinerary proposition. It makes the tour more concret and better to visualize for the client

Tibetan Connections were super-helpful when I needed some advice and information about trekking in Xining. They provided me with all the details I needed to have a great trip even though they were busy at the time. Much appreciated again guys!"

The trip was definitely magical! The Kailash kora was a once-in-a-lifetime adventure but it was our drives and treks around the remotest areas, bumping into nomads and shepherds along the way, that blew my mind. What an incredible place. The proper coffee was an added bonus - such small things that bring a taste of home can make the whole experience much more comfortable. I hope fate brings me back to Tibet one day, in which case I'll most definitely write you.

A short testimonial:
I asked for a trip to cover 5 or 6 days in Amdo, including a homestay; then the train to Lhasa with a similar period there. Tashi proposed an itinerary that met my request, and then all the arrangements, together with the random serendipitous events of a personal tour, exceeded my hopes! Tashi's wide experience is invaluable for getting off the beaten track. I strongly recommend getting a different perspective on Tibet in Amdo (and acclimatising to altitude there) before going on to TAR. I had a wonderful (and thought-provoking) time -- thanks!

This is our second time travelling with Tibetan connections and we weren't disappointed. Everything was arranged smoothly and Tashi was accommodating with our requests. Lhakdon was a very helpful and informative guide in Lhasa. She paced the trip to suit the various age of the people in our group. We had lots of fun during the trip! Thanks for everything :))
