Plot Your Own Path


Traveling privately on a custom itinerary means flexibility – flexibility to immerse yourself in your own exclusive experience, to craft an itinerary around your interests, and to travel when it’s right for you.

Want to meet local Tibetans and try your hand at bargaining for turquoise jewelry, carpets, yak wool boots, and fur hats trimmed with brocade at a local market? How about taking some time to watch monks engage in a lively debate at a local monastery? Need suggestions?

To get started planning a Tibet itinerary, take a look at our suggested Private Journey to the region, Essential Tibet, or read more about how to design your own trip.

Also keep in mind that you can customize any of our small group tours to match your preferred dates of travel. Get in touch, we’re here to help.

Signature Experiences

Below are just a few examples of the signature experiences that MIR can arrange for you in Tibet. Let them be a source of inspiration, then get in touch with one of our Private Journey Specialists to craft an itinerary that’s uniquely suited to your travel goals, budget, and style.

  • Don an apron for a cooking class of traditional Tibetan dishes with a local chef, and then together enjoy your meal while sipping Tibetan butter tea and barley wine
  • Visit a clinic of traditional Tibetan medicine (Sowa Rigpa) where harmony of “vital humors” is sought, and procedures include cupping, acupuncture, and astrological readings
  • Meet a local Tibetan family, learning firsthand the authentic customs and age-old traditions woven into their daily lives, community, and region
  • Let your jaw drop at the Mt. Everest Viewpoint, with its sweeping 360-degree views of the world’s highest peak (29,029 feet), along with four other sky-high Himalayan mountains.
