This July I’m heading to Tibet for the first time and I’ll be exploring the Tibetan plateau with 9 others. You could be one of them.
It’s a small group, as it always is with Lumen Dei tours. We’ll be spending our time among nomads in some of the more remote reaches of the plateau, and our time will be culminating with a large nomad horse festival. I’ve been asked to lead this group as the instructor so will be with you nearly 24/7 for this trip. It’ll be an adventure and while I hate to play favourites I think this is the tour I am most excited about this year, if only because Tibet has been on my bucket list for so long it’s starting to seem like one of those mythical places you read a lot about but doesn’t actually exist.
More information can be found on the site HERE. The tour is from July 20-30, (though the graphic above says 19th to 31st because those are arrival and departure dates) Cost is USD$4800 from Xining. This one is going to go fast. If the dates don’t work or you prefer to do a similar tour with someone better looking than I am, Matt Brandon will be doing a similar tour, though without the horse festival, from June 18th to July 01st. Info on Matt’s tour can be found HERE.
This is the only remaining tour I am leading for 2010 that is not sold out. If you’ve got an itch to do this once-in-a-lifetime journey and think traveling with me wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world, then act quick. Can’t wait to see who’s traveling with me for this one. Lumen Dei tours are an unique photographic learning experience; join us!
Lumen Dei was founded by Matt Brandon and I, and still reflects our passion, vision, and ethics, but is now run separately in order to grow with the demand. If you have specific questions about the tour please feel free to ask but I’m in Africa until the middle of February and wouldn’t be able to do more than guess at the answer anyways. I no longer deal with logistics in any way. I focus on what I love and what I am good at – teaching. The other guys do a much better job at the other stuff. My only regret in all this is that I don’t get to travel with Matt, which ought to keep the sarcasm levels down, but now I’ll have no one to snuggle with on those cold Himalayan nights 🙂 Ahem. All that to say, please direct questions through the Lumen-Dei site and be patient, you’re dealing with very capable people that might be spending a few nights with the nomads and it might take a couple days to get a reply. They’ll take excellent care of you, though.
