Tibet Tour is full of mysterious and unique culture, attracting all the guests from the world coming to join. It is one of the most adventurous, scenically stunning and physically demanding tours in the world. Touring Tibet, meeting it’s people, learning about its culture, visiting the majestic Potala Palace and beautiful Norbulingka Park, or trekking up to the Mt. Everest Base camp…all of these items made Tibet travel as one of dreams in one’s life. However, not everyone has the chance to fulfill their dreams.
The first and the most important obstacle is the Mountain Sickness. Acute Mountain Sickness is an illness that can affect mountain climbers, hikers, skiers or travelers who climb too fast. It usually occurs when people rapidly reach a high altitude (typically above 8,000 feet or 2,400 meters). Due to the decreasing availability of oxygen, it is very common to occur at high altitudes. Since most places in Tibet are higher than 3000 meters, most people will experience one or more AMS symptoms upon their arrival in Tibet, including headache, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, shortness of breath, loss of appetite and disturbed sleep.
So, it is a pity for people who have problems like anemia or hypertension, heart problems, respiratory problems and other illness of lungs, liver or kidney. These kind of people should not travel Tibet.And for people who are suitable to make a tour in Tibet,also need do something to avoid the AMS. You’d better do don’t do strenuous exercises, avoid alcohol and drink extra fluids and eat more vegetable and fruit.
