    How bad is Altitude Sickness in Tibet, and what can I do to avoid, or treat it?
    Tibet, known as the Roof of the World, is one of the highest places on earth. Due to Tibet's high altitudes, many visitors from low-altitude areas suffer from altitude sickness. Most people only suffer minor effects of altitude sickness, which include a headache, loss of appetite, and a tendency to have no energy until their bodies adjust to the high terrain. This adjustment can take anywhere from a few hours, and in rare cases, a few days. If visitors do some simple preparations before going to Tibet, most of the symptoms of altitude sickness can be avoided. Being healthy and in good shape, before you arrive in Tibet will help greatly. It is also recommended that you talk to your local physician about AMS pills to help combat altitude sickness. Once arriving in Tibet, walk slowly and take deep breaths. Your tour guide will be there to offer help and suggestions.

    What is the weather like in Tibet and when is the best time to travel there?
    Generally, weather in Tibet takes some getting used to. Summers are cool, and winters are dangerously cold. Sun radiation is extremely strong in Tibet. Most annual rainfall falls from June to September. In the Lhasa and Shigatse areas, rains usually come in the evening. The best time to visit Tibet is from April to October. The best time to visit Mt. Everest are in May and early October. The peak tourism season runs from July 1st to October 15th.

    What cuisine options are there in Tibet? Are there other options besides only local foods?
    Due to the harsh living environment of Tibet, the traditional Tibetan food is quite different from cuisine found in other parts of the world, and many visitors do not like it when they try it for the first time. Due to its uniqueness, it is highly recommended that visitors at least sample the local foods. There are many kinds of foods available in Tibet's cities. Chinese food, western food, and Nepali food can be found. In remote towns and areas, choices are limited. Chinese food or Sichuan cuisine is probably the best choice.

    Trip Extensions/ Add on trips
    If you like our service and you want to extend your trip, then we can further organize your trip to India and Bhutan. And other trekking and activities of Nepal like Everest TrekAnnapurna Basecamp TrekLangtang TrekManaslu TrekBunjee JumpingRaftingPeak Climbing, etc.
