General information for Tibet tour:

  1. A jacket and a sweater are advised throughout the year, specially for tours outside Lhasa as the weather may unexpectedly change at any time! Other recommended items are a flashlight, comfortable walking shoes, sun hat, sun glasses, suntan lotion and some warm clothes.
  2. Transportation will be either by Land cruiser or by mini bus depending on the size of the group. However, tours to the Everest base camp will always be operated by Land cruiser due to bad road conditions.
  3. Tibet is 8 hours ahead of GMT since it is linked to Beijing time. The time difference with Nepal is therefore 2 hours and 15 minutes.
  4. Tibet has only a handful of towns, and Tibetan cuisine is not exactly the most varied in the world. Although it is certainly possible to get some good food one might want to bring food items like: nuts, muesli, chocolate and other dry food. Since you can get hot boiled water almost everywhere throughout Tibet it is also handy to bring instant drinks like: coffee, hot chocolate, soup or bouillon.
  5. Traveling in Tibet involves high altitude and can be strenuous. Clients with heart and lung problem or blood diseases should consult their doctor before booking the trip. Very rare cases of altitude sickness have been reported but simple headache, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorders can happen during the acclimatization. It is advised to drink approx . 3 liters of water per day , not to strain yourself, move slowly, breath deeply and take regular rests.
