the past twenty years our General Manager,
Mr. Hua Qing, has traveled all over China
as a tour leader and national guide. As a pioneer of specialty and
adventure tours in China, Mr. Hua and his capable team have planned
and operated many such tours in remote and unraveled areas of China.
Mr. Hua Qing's goal is to share with our clients the unique cultures
that are gradually disappearing due to modernization. Our clients
leave China with lifetime memories.
Mr. Hua Qing was born in the countryside of Eastern Tibet. He grew
up with a special love and understanding of nature, farmers and
nomadic people. He therefore has a creative sensitivity that forms
the basis of unusual specialty and adventure tour itineraries. Many
of the places he shares with his groups are not regular tourist
destinations and cannot be found in guidebooks. Ethnic culture,
textiles, local festivals, minority arts and crafts, high land trekking
and cycling, bird watching, as well as different study tours along
the Silk Road, are some examples.
Botany and agriculture tours along the Yangtze and Yellow Rivers
and from the highlands down to the flatlands are other adventures
also available. Mr. Hua Qing and his team are pioneers in arranging
unusual agriculture tours such as dairy, duck, deer, kiwi fruit,
and potato farming. Other interesting tours show the client the
changes in the modern life of Chinese farmers and peasants.
West-Eastours.com itineraries become unique experiences as our clients
are taken into the homes, hearts and minds of the native people.
Mr. Hua Qing's extensive relationships in China ensure that our
clients are welcomed everywhere.
Our general manager believes that customer satisfaction should be
our service priority. He has instilled in his team his own high
standards of good service. Our company strives to give the client
the best available service, and to ensure the client's comfort,
safety and happiness during all tours. We contract highly skilled
native guides, experienced drivers and professional tour operators.
In short, we hire the best team to do the best job for our clients.
Just as the words of Shakespeare, Dickens, Balzac, Hardy, and Jane
Austin open our minds to new ideas and concepts, and just as the
music of Strauss, Hayden, Beethoven, Schubert and Mozart calms and
soothes the soul, Mr. Hua Qing's adventure tours give our guests
stimulating and different life experiences in comfortable and secure
Tourists coming to China, with West-Eastours.com enjoy different
peoples, beautiful landscapes, good food and comfortable hotels.

Phuntsok, Tibetan by birth, a monk for seven years with knowledge
of several Tibetan grassland dialects and possessing a happy personality,
has been with us for the last several years. We are so grateful
for him considering all of our wishes as his command and helping
to make our expeditions a great success. I always think of him yelling
Lha Jia Lo at all the high passes as he tosses the prayer papers
with Lhongta the Wind Horse into the air! He has scrambled up rocky
cliffs to bring us a rare flower and has given us understanding
of the dark side of Tantric Buddhism as well as the joy and lightness
one may personally attain.
Tsering was born in a Golok nomad family in Amdo of great
Tibet, at the foot of Mt. Amnye Machen, he fought against his fate
of becoming a nomad like his father and grandfathers. At the age
of 13, Duker left his loving mom and dad and the grassland which
had nurtured his family from generation to generation. He was on
the back of a yak for the first day's trip to Lanzhou, capital city
of Northwest China's Gansu Province. He tied his yak well and went
to sound sleep the first night. However Duker found no yak on the
second morning and he was left alone on the vast grassland. His
yak went home apparently. With tears in his eyes, Duker had a last
look at the direction of his home and carried all his belongs and
started his very first trekking in his life, it was a trek of a
life time, it was a trek for a new life and a new world, mysterious
but with hope. He trekked for two days to reach the bus station
where he saw the first vehicle in his life and this vehicle took
him to Lanzhou where he met his aunt. With the help of his aunt,
Duker finally became a student at a school in Lanzhou where he was
one of the two Tibetan students. He anxiously studied Chinese and
English from the very beginning. It was the learning of English
that changed him, his way of life and his perspective of the world.
Wow, what a different world was what he found out one year after
he started to learn English and finally he realized that he had
to do something for his fellow Tibetans upon his graduation. He
went to the Labrang Monastery and worked as a part time tour guide
to help Westerners to know Tibetan culture where he met Americans,
British and people from the West. Of course, middle school English
was never good enough to communicate. Duker had to study English
by himself and practiced with travelers. The Labrang Monastery is
one of the six most important monasteries in whole Tibet. Besides
English, Duker had thoroughly studied Tibetan Buddhism, history,
and culture. His knowledge of Tibet enables him to provide information
even to those demanding Tibetan scholars from the West. Today Duker
is one of the best guides in Tibet. Born in Golok of Amnye Machen
area, Duker recognizes himself as the son of Mt. Amnye Machen who
knows every inch of Amnye Machen. Duker believes that it is his
obligation to introduce his hometown, Tibet to the world, to take
good care of those who come to visit his hometown.

Liangye was born in Urumqi, capital city of Northwest China's Xinjiang
Province, and lived with her grandparents in the countryside in
Hunan province during her childhood. She went to the field with
them everyday, helped do a little farm work, and could recognize
many crops such as potatoes, paddy rice, sweet potatoes, edible
wild vegetables, soybeans and so on. She also fed the beautiful
cock and fat pigs in the yard. It was her grandparents who led an
idyllic life and taught her to be a nature-lover. Later, she lived
in Xinjiang province for 7 years, and she never forgets the mountains,
the lakes and the people accompanying her growing-up, then she moved
to Beijing with her family in 1997. She was once an excellent accountant
with the biggest real estate company of Beijing. Just in July, 2003,
her boyfriend Bing took her to Qinghai, his lovely hometown, to
see his birthplace and to do sightseeing. What a different world.
The clean blue sky and the white clouds were rare to see in modern
city. She loved to lie down on the grassland and closed her eyes,
letting the wind whistle through her ears. The Kokonor Lake that
she had been longing to see day and night was much larger and more
beautiful than she’d expected. The highlight was that she
saw many different sects of monasteries and local religious ceremonies.
She was deeply moved by those native nomadic people who turned the
prayer wheels everyday praying not only for their family but also
for the human beings, and those devout pilgrims who did prostration
all year round. That was a beautiful piece of land, peace, quiet,
and arousing her deep love towards nature. She therefore quit the
former job and started a new career of her life. She has read numerous
books about Chinese agriculture and Tibetan areas, and traveled
all over China. With her English language capability, she becomes
more skillful and experienced. All her effort is geared to a higher
level of service for our guests. Some persons say that:“ it
is money that makes the world go round”, but there is an inner
voice in her heart :“it is love that do makes the world go
