About the Odyssey:

Embark on a once-in-a-lifetime odyssey to the mystical realms of Nepal and Tibet, where spirituality comes alive in breathtaking fashion. In Kathmandu, Nepal, immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of holy traditions as you explore ancient temples, meet devoted monks, and witness the mesmerizing rituals that have graced these lands for centuries. As we journey to Lhasa, Tibet and beyond, a unique opportunity awaits, for we may be among the last people to experience this sacred land with a Tibetan-born Dalai Lama still living. Feel the spiritual resonance of the Potala Palace, a place where time seems to stand still, and uncover the wisdom of a culture that thrives at the roof of the world. Our team of seasoned spiritual and travel guides, who have traversed these sacred lands countless times before, will facilitate your inner and outer journey, providing you with insights into these mystical traditions and encounters with local communities. This is your chance to connect with the spiritual essence of the Himalayas! Limited spots are available. With early bird pricing ending February 29, 2024, your time to register for this extraordinary spiritual odyssey is now. Don't miss out on this transformative learning experience!

A Word about Tibet: An occupied people working diligently to keep their culture and traditions alive, Tibetans have much to teach us about life and spirituality. At Tumbuh Global, we are proud to be partnering with one of the oldest woman-owned Tibetan tour agencies in the region. As a closed location, one cannot enter without a local guide. However, most tour agencies and businesses are now Chinese-owned. Our Tibetan partner is one we have worked with before and known for nearly 15 years. This is one way we can ensure we are supporting Tibetan people and Tibetan businesses as part of this odyssey experience.
