I won't duplicate all of the great reviews below. We hired Nathan for a full 6 days of adventure in October, 2018. He picked us up in Lijiang, and then showed us all around the area. First off, don't try this stuff if you are...More

This review has been long overdue. My fiance and I booked two tours through Turtle Mountain Gear and Outfitters in August: the Lijiang to Shangri-La transfer with a visit to Tiger Leaping Gorge and the tibetan home visit with yak butter tea. Both were great...More

I have twice used TMG to help organise independent hikes. Both times Nathan has been incredibly helpful and supportive, offering route suggestions and hiring good-quality gear. His knowledge of the local area and people is impressive. Based on my experience I would also recommend TMG...More

I used to think I am not an outdoor girl. My trip with turtle mountain totally changed my view. I am falling love with the beautiful shangrila through our local guide Nima's excellent guide. And their home brewed beer is the bestest!
