Tibet Student Journeys

Universities, schools and club groups tailor made experiences

Do you want your students to experience the wider world beyond the classroom?

Let them see first-hand how people from an entirely different culture live and work?

Explore a part of the world that has captivated travellers for years?

Beyond The Clouds offers well planned, tailor made student expeditions to Tibet. These are designed specifically for your school, university or club, to enable you to experience the real Tibet with ease, with expert guides and a wide range of activities.

We work with you to design a tour that fits your group’s interests or curriculum needs, to ensure that your students get the most out of their time on the roof of the world, besides the incredible photos and memories. Our youth focused travel packages will make your tour in China and Tibet easy and enjoyable. 

In Tibet your students will not only learn about Tibetan culture, but also about themselves: leadership skills, team building, and problem solving are just some of the long-lasting benefits of adventurous travel for student groups. This once in a lifetime journey will challenge them to grow and appreciate the world in new and different ways. They will learn the value of responsibility and community service in inspiring surroundings that they will never forget.

No matter what the focus of your student trip to Tibet is, every tour includes an introduction to Tibetan culture, history and lifestyle. Whether you’re seeking a wilderness adventure, cultural experience or community service opportunity we can make it happen, and design a tailor-made itinerary just right for your group.
