Auguste Desgodins (16 October 1826, Manheulles – 14 March 1913, Pedong) was a French missionary who attempted to enter into Tibet in the early 1860s. While both Desgodins and his colleague, the Vicar Apostolic Thomine-Desmazures were granted passports to enter Lhasa, Tibet in 1861 and 1862, they were repelled from the border on multiple occasions. He lived sometime in Darjeeling.
