Before you go Tibet

Before you go Tibet

Good to know before you go Tibet

Ask permission before photographing people or religious sites

Just like anywhere else, some Tibetans may feel uncomfortable with having their picture taken while others may have no problem! Many monasteries and temples charge a fee for taking pictures, a native Tibet travel guide will know when and where photographs are ok and when paying a fee is necessary.

Avoid politically sensitive discussions in public is one of the important tips in this section of good to know before you go Tibet

Tibet’s political situation is unique. While political discourse is beneficial to societies the world over, given the situation, these kind of discussions may make some Tibetans feel uncomfortable.

Being charitable is beneficial tip to remember in this section of good to know before you go Tibet

This is a great way to engage with locals on a Tibet tour. It is appropriate and appreciated to make donations at monasteries or temples. Also, food or money can be a great gift for a pilgrim. However, avoid giving candy or money to children as it encourages begging.

Try speaking Tibetan

While it’s hard to pronounce and the words can be hard for westerners to remember, any attempt is appreciated. A simple “Tashi Delek” can brighten someone’s day! So remember to learn some useful Tibetan travel language and try to talk with local tour guide, driver, shop owners and hotel staff with little simple local language.

Those traveling to Tibet are likely to experience a world different from anything they know! While it can be difficult to keep in mind every single cultural norm, making an effort to follow these guidelines lets Tibetans know that you respect their culture and way of life. Tibet is a rapidly changing place and many Tibetans are trying hard to hold on to their unique culture before it slips away forever. When visiting, travelers must be mindful of their actions and how they affect locals. Get involved in Tibetan culture by taking Tibet Cultural Travel now.
