WindhorseTour Has Released Family Focused Tours to Tibet

WindhorseTour, a local travel agency with offices in Lhasa, has recently made travel in Tibet more accessible to family travelers. With over 10 years experience of designing tours to Tibet, they offer the tours which can meet the needs of different groups of clients, including parents with their kids.

“Based on Tibet private tours with native Tibetan guides, we specially redesigned the itinerary with a flexible schedule, ensuring all the family members have enough time to enjoy their trip without the rushed feeling of crowded group tours,” Tashi, a travel adviser at the Lhasa office of WindhorseTour, said.

Generally, clients start with a visit in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, including a stop at the less visited Ganden Monastery, which is over 50 km. (21 mi.) from Lhasa city. A short day trek to the hills next to the monastery is arranged for clients to capture the unique surrounding scenery.

Other highlights in Lhasa city including Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple and Sera Monastery offer family members a great chance to stay together and learn about the mysterious cultures of Tibetan people.

After visiting Lhasa, family travelers can extend their trips with a Tibet culture tour to Tsedang, the cradle of Tibetan civilizations. They will visit the Yumbulakang Palace and Samye Monastery to learn how the ancient great Tibet dynasty was gestated on this fertile land.

Samye is a popular destination for trekkers. WindhorseTour has arranged a short day trek in Chim-puk Hermitage, a place next to Samye Monastery with few people visited. Compared with other normal trekking, this activity only requires moderate effort, which is fitting for old people and kids. This place used to be an ashram of the local monks. Now clients will find here a tranquil place for them to appreciate the natural scenery and get close to nature.

When planning a family focused tour, it is best for travelers to decide what they are interested in most, the travel advisers at WindhorseTour will share their clients expert advice and help them plan an itinerary which can be around those interests.

WindhorseTour specializes in creating tailor-made experiences based on every client’s unique needs and operating groups to all provinces in China. Please visit for more information or contact them.
