Tibet – June – looking for travelling companions


I’m planning on doing the following trip with a local Tibetan travel agency (http://www.tibetanguide.com/) from the 11th to 28th June. In summary, the trip will include a few days in Lhasa, followed by the Tsurphu to Yangpanchen trek, then Namtso Lake for a night, and finally a road trip down to EBC via Shigatse, Gyantse, Karola Glacier and Yamdro Tso Lake, before returning to Lhasa to depart.

I’d quite like to have a(some) travel companion(s) to share the experience and the cost(!).

If you’re interested, send me an email (tashbean@gmail.com) and I can give you more information (cost etc). It’s possible for you to join for just part of the trip as well, so let me know if you’d be interested in that.
