Meaningful Travel in Tibet
When travelling in Tibet we think it is important to give something back to the local communities. You can visit a local project supporting blind and partially-sighted people, stay in local-owned Tibetan accommodation wherever possible and interact with local guides. You can find out more below about how we at Rickshaw Travel make travel meaningful.
All our trips in Tibet endeavour to give something back to the local communities you are travelling in. We have a Tibetan partner based in Lhasa who use Tibetan-owned hotels and all our guides and drivers are local Tibetans, giving you a real insight into their culture.
When choosing our accommodation, we try to use locally-owned Tibetan guest houses and hotels wherever we can. Accommodation in Tibet is limited in areas but we’ve tried to find places which benefit the local community and economy, which also means you may get to stay somewhere a bit out of the ordinary.
Our Local Tibet Project
In all our destinations we like to support a local project to give something back. In Tibet, we’re proud supporters of Braille without Borders, an international development organisation which creates training programs and books for blind and visually impaired people in Tibet and across the world.
