Dharamsala Insight Tour 2018

Dharamsala Insight Tour offers our supporters a unique opportunity to travel to the spiritual and political centre of exiled Tibetans.

Nestled in the Himalayan foothills, Dharamsala is home to the Dalai Lama. Surrounded by misty mountain tops, the bustling streets are teeming with pilgrims chanting mantras and spinning prayer wheels.

Over 30 years of working for Tibet, we have built strong relationships with the people and places of Dharamsala. This allows us to offer our travellers an insider’s view into the rich tapestry of exile Tibetan life.

Join us on the Dharamsala Insight Tour 2018.
