Ganglha Ecocultural Travel was founded by GANGLHA, a non-profit local organization on the Tibetan Plateau. Your contribution directly helps sustain the communities and cultures on the Tibetan Plateau. We sincerely care about your journey through Ecocultural Travel and want you to have an enjoyable and memorable experience.
Ganglha Ecocultural Travel is a form of sustainable tourism that presents aspects of Tibet's unique ecology and culture for travelers. Our tours take you to the most pristine corners of Tibet. Meanwhile, our unique services will help to conserve the fragile environment, safeguard culture, and economically benefit local communities on the Tibetan Plateau. To minimize environmental and cultural impacts, we avoid ‘mass tourism’. We also advocate a constant process of reflexive learning that enables us to better respect and benefit local environments, cultures, and communities. Local Tibetans play an important role in Ganglha Ecocultural Travel. Our tours are designed and maintained by local Tibetans who know the Plateau intimately. Services, hotels, and homestays are all provided by local Tibetans, and your time with Ganglha therefore directly benefits our communities, economy, and culture.
The Tibetan Plateau is known as the ‘Third Pole’ and ‘the Roof of the World’. Our tours are organized throughout the Plateau, in Tibet's three major regions: Amdo, Kham, and Lhasa. Our office is located in northeastern (Amdo) Tibet in China.
