We, Rigzin & Tsewang, have opened Himalayan Dragon Tours & Travels in 2008, after working as guides in Leh for five years. We are from Zanskar but have been educated in different places in India, including the Tibetan Children’s Village Schools (TCV) in Leh and Bylakuppe and universities in India.
Our appreciation for our roots in Zanskar has grown over our life. Due to its remote location, Zanskar has been very isolated and was only opened to foreigners in 1974. Since then it has become a tourist destination, but its culture and traditions remain unchanged. Our families still live there and we are deeply connected to this place. We are also happy to share it with others.
We have good experiences working with tourists from around the world and speak fluent English, Ladakhi and Hindi, as well as French and German. Whether you’re interested in a trek to Zanskar, Ladakh, or a tour of India, we will give you our best service and we are confident you will enjoy your stay.
