Students tour in Tibet is a fantastic way for students to gain the global perspective they need to stand out amongst their peers. Tibet Lhasa travel agency Tibet Ctrip Travel Service-TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com) has experience working with student travelers and operates tours that provide opportunities to engage with local culture and connect with Tibet’s natural beauty. To help minimize travel expenses without sacrificing quality, TCTS is more than happy to match students traveling in small groups with other small groups that have similar itineraries. Whether travel groups are looking to focus on culture, nature, or a mixture of both, TCTS offers a variety of options. Some of the most popular tours include:
Six-Day Tibet Culture and Buddhism Tour: Travel groups begin their tour of Tibet in Lhasa, where they can acclimatize to the altitude and become oriented with Tibetan culture. Over the first few days, a native Tibetan guide will accompany travelers to places like Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, along with Sera and Drepung Monasteries. Visiting and learning about places like these give insights into Tibetan Buddhism and how it has influenced Tibetan history. After touring Lhasa, the Yarlung Valley, cradle of Tibetan civilization, is next on the itinerary. Travelers will visit places like Yumbulagang Palace, which is over 2000 years old and is the first palace built in Tibet, then Tramdruk Monastery, one of Tibet’s oldest and greatest temples.
Seven-Day Everest Base Camp Tour: This Tibet tour blends Tibet culture and history with some of Earth’s most spectacular scenery. After becoming acclimatized to the altitude and oriented with Tibetan culture, travel groups will head for Mt. Everest Base Camp. The drive to base camp takes two days, making several stops, first at Lake Yamdrok, a vast mountain lake that shines a deep blue on sunny days, second in Gyantse to explore Pelkhor Monastery and Kumbum Pagoda, and then an overnight stop in Shigatse where travelers can visit a Tibetan market and explore the sprawling Tashilhunpo Monastery. The tour arrives at Everest Base Camp in the afternoon and stays overnight for early morning views of the mountain.
Unique travel opportunities like these provide students with a chance to engage with foreign cultures and become more in touch with Earth’s natural heritage. Tibet travel allows travelers to learn about the region’s history, gain insight into local culture, and experience unmatched natural beauty. TCTS can help student travel groups cut costs and make friends from all over the world by matching small travel groups of similar itineraries. With summer rapidly approaching, travelers are advised to plan in advance and book their tour as soon as possible.
