  • A Lifetime Experience in Tibet

    - Lester Pounds, Canada

    I can't explain how much I love travelling in these mountainous countries. It was my 3rd visit to Everest Base Camp but this time we went to Tibet side Base Camp. The experience was completely different but the service provided by Sublime was the same. Lhasa is outstanding, Tibetan art and architecture has always amused me.  I have travelled with them a lot and I wouldn't choose anyone else. Its surprising how they can conduct these tours in various countries but with such experience and dedication it has been possible. I want to thank Ram once again. I had so much fun.
