Pokhara TOUR NOTES:
Our tours are not private. Usually, we get 2 to 3 people in a group. But we also accept other guests, who are interested in joining with our group.
Saturday is our weekend in Nepal, therefore our carpet workshop is close, but our carpet showroom will be open. On Tuesday, Friday & Sunday, our Tibetan doctor is not available, therefore we can’t able to meet with our Tibetan doctor.
Our tour includes lots of information about Tibet, Buddhist culture and the living conditions of Tibetan people in Nepal. Also how well Tibetans have preserved their rich Buddhist cultural heritage in Nepal, as refugees. Our guide will give an informed explanation during the tour and will welcome questions from our guests as well.
