Are there any suggestions on what I should do or take to acclimatize the altitude in Tibet?

Almost every visitor is affected by the high altitude as Tibet is over 3000 meters above sea level and many areas are above 5000 meters. Most of the visitors get acclimatized to the high altitude by taking it easy for one or two days, while still paying to their health.

> We would like to make several suggestions to those contemplating going to Tibet.

People with serious heart diseases should not visit Tibet. Those with less serious heart problems need to consult a doctor before traveling.

> People with high or low blood pressure need to consult a doctor before traveling.

> Try to keep healthy and not to catch a cold before entering Tibet.

> The first day arriving in Tibet, suggest visitors not take a bath and smokers not smoke.

> Drink plenty of water while traveling in Tibet.

> Eat light, high-carbohydrate meals for more energy and avoid alcohol as it may increase the risk of dehydration.

> Tell your guide quickly if you don't feel well and follow guide's advice.

>It is advisable to use sunscreen, sunglasses lip creams to protect your eyes and skin, for Tibet's high altitude and the atmosphere allow the sun's solar radiation to strike the earth with unusual intensity.

8. In addition to the normal medications for traveling it is advisable to bring high altitude medication. Ask your doctor for suggestions.
