Little Tibet Tour 2023

Journey to the heart of Tibet in Exile

An incredible journey to Dharamsala in northern India, the heart of Tibet in exile.

Stunning snow-capped mountains, prayer flags flapping in the wind, Tibetan Buddhists walking the kora every morning around the Dalai Lama’s temple, young activists organising campaigns for a free Tibet…

This 12-day Little Tibet Tour, allows you to experience all this and more. From the teeming streets of Delhi, you will travel north to the Himalayan foothills. Spending 11 days in the spiritual and political capital of Tibet in exile, you will immerse yourself in all facets of Tibetan culture and learn firsthand about the current plight of the Tibetan people and their inspiring resilience.

Key highlights include meeting Tibetans and hearing their personal stories, experiencing the delights of Tibetan and Indian cuisines, hiking in the mountains, visiting Tibetan NGOs, political institutions and cultural centres and learning about all things Tibet. And also taking time out for yourself to meditate, read, spend time in nature and make meaningful friendships.

Specially designed and led by Australia Tibet Council, the Little Tibet Tour is a unique opportunity to experience the Tibetan world with a group of travellers from Australia and worldwide, united by their shared passion and love for Tibet.
