From early morning walks around the Dalai Lama's temple, to evening discussions on Tibetan feminism with leading women, to visits to the Tibetan Children's Village, our 2015 Dharamsala Insight Tour was a great experience.

The two-week tour will head off again in October 2017. Download the Information Pack here.

The greatest highlight of the 2015 tour was our special audience with the Dalai Lama and the opportunity to present our new report Tibet - An Environmental Challenge. A strong environmental advocate, His Holiness took keen interest in the report and encouraged us to continue with this important work.

ATC has been leading small groups on thise emotional and inspiring journey to the heart of the Tibetan community in exile since 2011. We spend 10 days in the mountain town of McLeod Ganj (Upper Dharamsala) experiencing the daily life of this relaxed yet lively Tibetan centre. 

You'll hear the moving stories of life in Tibet from newly-arrival refugees, witness the enduring strength of the Tibetan struggle as we visit cultural and political organisations, and hear from young and passionate Tibetan activists about their dreams of a future Tibet.
