The Little Tibet Tour

The Little Tibet Tour is Australia Tibet Council’s annual guided tour to Dharamsala, India — the heart of Tibet in exile.

The Little Tibet Tour is a culmination of decades of experience and relationships built in the Tibetan struggle, brought together to give participants the most authentic Tibetan experience of culture, religion and politics in the Tibetan community in exile.

We will try our best to keep the travel costs as quoted. However, they can vary slightly as a result of changes in group size or factors beyond our control. For instance, a significant change in exchange rates. The sooner participants can confirm their trips, the sooner we can lock in the quote.

What is the size of the group?

There can be anywhere from 10-20 people in our group. If we get more than 20 or so participants, we may look at organising two tours – one after another.
