About Tales from Tibet
Tales from Tibet invites intrepid globe-trotters to share their tales of travel around Tibet and its neighboring regions in Western China.
Our guests have trekked through Tibetan areas in western China - by train, by bus, by foot and by yak. They've seen the monasteries, braved the markets, and crooned through their oxygen masks at late-night karaoke bars. Through their travel expeditions, we endeavor to give you a glimpse of Tibet in its iconic shades of saffron robes and cerulean skies, as well as a few lesser-known tones that escape the spectrum.
If you have been to Western China and are interested in telling your story, or if you have any questions about Tibet, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to Ed Fry who won the best storyteller award ($1000 travel voucher towards Wild China trips) for the month of August 2010!
