Acute Mountain Sickness In Tibet

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.

Highlights of China Tour

China is a destination that has simply so much to offer its visitors who often return home with unforgettable memories of this unique country. The different regions and cities of China have their own unique selection of sights and sounds that would fascinate you regardless of whether you are into nature, architecture, culture, shopping or food. To plan your China tour well and select the right tour for you, you have to figure out what you are most keen to see in your limited time there. While there can be infinite possibilities on where you can choose to tour, here are my recommendations for three must-see places.

A. Touring the majestic Great Wall of China

Great Wall is no doubt one of China’s most visited and much raved about destinations. The sheer grandeur of the longest defense wall in the world, and the fact that it was constructed over several dynasties is sure to impress you if you have not seen it up close. You can visit a number of sections of the Great Wall which have been opened to public access, each possessing its own unique scenery. The Badaling section is probably the most visited by tourists due to it being accessible via only an hour’s drive from the capital Beijing. The terrain is generally friendly for walking, while the views from the top are simply incomparable. If you are rugged and adventurous, you can take a hike between the Simitai and Jinshanling sections which also offer stunning views. However you have to overcome some rough and steep terrain.

B. Take an unforgettable Yangtze River Cruise Tour

You should take a cruise down the Yangtze River if you want to see some of the most majestic natural landscapes in China. You have a choice of cruising from Chongqing to Yichang. You will be treated to a plethora of wonderful scenery that you will not soon forget after your cruise. A Yangtze River cruise tour will not be complete without passing by the Three Gorges, which are appreciated not only for their aesthetic beauty, but also for their historical, cultural and religious background. The Three Gorges Dam is also a prominent sight that you cannot miss. To truly appreciate the Yangtze River, it is recommended that you also learn about its culture. One such opportunity would be the International Tourist Festival of Three Gorges in Chongqing in the month of June, which will be an educational and entertaining experience for visitors with its trade talks, folk art displays and performances.

C. Shanghai Tour – embrace history and modernity of China

If you want to experience urban life while having easy access to cultural and historical sites, Shanghai is the place for you. You will be impressed with the city’s eclectic blend of history and modernity, especially if you visit the following popular sights below. Showcasing the pinnacle of modern developments in the city, the Pudong area is home to two of the most impressive modern structures that you will ever see – the Oriental TV Tower and the Jinmao Tower. To revisit the city’s colourful past, what better place to tour than The Bund? Situated along the city’s waterfront, you will be fascinated by the famous row of colonial buildings which are ample reminders of a bygone era. To immerse yourself in a calm and relaxing atmosphere while admiring ancient architecture and relics, I recommend a visit to the Jade Buddha Temple. Here, you can marvel at the beauty of some notable relics including a collection of the finest jade Buddha statues.

China Flavour

What do you think when you picture China Tour? Now over though the Beijing Olympics and Shanghai Expo, China will revert to its complex mix of ancient tradition, modern competitive market, sophisticated cities and rural simplicity. A gourmet tour to China travels through the whole mix of culture via the diverse flavours of a country that few westerners really know.

An enormous country like China has a huge range of culinary traditions:

Beijing lies in the northern part of China where the staple crop is wheat and they have many more dishes based on noodles, pancakes and dumplings, instead of the rice favoured in the south. If you want to taste the genuine flavours of Beijing duck, there’s no  better place to sample it than Beijing itself. A bustling city that still retains its traditional tea houses among all the sophisticated big city modernity, Beijing is also ideally placed to visit the Great Wall of China, where you could lunch on delicious traditional dishes in the shadow of this ancient wonder of the world.

Eastern China combines both these staples and is often characterised by its use of sugar to sweeten dishes as well as being famed for its red-cooking, using soy sauce to simmer meat slowly, until it takes on a reddish tinge. In a chic city like Shanghai, you can experience the most modern innovative cuisine drawing on the wealth of traditions China offers. Traditional tea ceremonies offer a glimpse into the elaborate rituals of a formal culture, where beauty and elegance are integrated into every move.To get a feel of the old China, a visit to some of the historic rural towns outside Shanghai is essential to introduce you to the world of tea houses, canals and gardens that still delight the eye and the palate.

A Cantonese seafood meal, where diners select their meal from an aquarium to ensure that their meal is as fresh as it can be is not to be missed. As well as Cantonese cuisine from southern China, with an emphasis on fresh ingredients cooked quickly in a stir fry, be sure to try the spicier Sichuan style of cooking that originated in the mountainous province of the same name. Relaxed food opportunities, such as sampling street nibbles in neighbourhood markets contrast with more formal meals at restaurants rated high in the international gourmet world.

A wealth of cuisines and traditions to explore makes a fascinating China tour. China Tour of gourmet experience will leave you relaxed, revitalised and full of new flavour!

Tibetan Funeral Custom

Any Tibetan festival you meet in Tibet will make your Tibet tour more exciting. One of the Tibetan festival is the Funeral Custom. The Tibetan funeral is imbued with Buddhist belief in reincarnation. It is a ceremony to expiate the sins of the dead and a guarantee for the future life of the dead. Tibetans are not afraid of death. They believe that death does not terminate a life, but indicates rebirth. Generally, funeral rituals practiced in Tibet are stupa burial, sky burial, cremation, water burial, and internment. Cliff burial and tree burial are also practiced occasionally.

Sky Burial is considered to be the dominant funeral custom in Tibet. The body is laid out in the open on the rocky terrain and meticulously skinned and dissected. The bones are crushed and mixed with tsampa. Vultures sweep down upon bloody remains and rip into the human flesh. As the bones are polished by the satisfied birds, the remains are gathered and burnt in a ceremonial fire. Tibetans believe that the majestic birds are competent for bringing the souls up to heaven.

Stupa Burial is the noblest funeral ritual in Tibet, which is reserved for Dalai Lama , Panchen Lama and Living Buddha.

Cremation is reserved for high monks and aristocrats. It is also used for commoners in the southeast of Tibet where trees are abundant.

Water Burial is considered an inferior way to dispose of those with low social status. In water burial, the corpse is wrapped with white cloth and disposed into a river.

Inhumation now is rarely practiced. It is reserved for those who died of infectious diseases or unnatural causes such as murder or accidents. According to Tibetans, these bodies are not clean enough to be presented to the vultures.

Cliff Burial is practiced in southern Tibet. The embalmed corpse is placed in a wooden box. The box is then placed in the cave off a cliff.

Tree Burial is for children, commonly practiced in Nyingchi. The corpse of the child is placed in a wooden case and hung on a tree in a remote forest.

Beijing Roast Duck

Beijing Roast Duck, or Peking Duck, one of the most famous and delicious food in Beijing, is deemed to be one of the important things that must be experienced in any trip to Beijing. The duck is a variety of ducks that has been specially bred and fattened in the suburb areas of Beijing. After being drawn and cleaned, it will be pumped with air under the skin of the duck to ensure it is separated from the flesh. Then a special sauce is coated over the duck, so that it will appear as if painted a brilliant red when it is cooking, with the nickname “lacquered duck”.And it will look brilliantly dark red, shining with oil and with crisp skin and tender meat. Because of its nice appearance, few people could resist the temptation of it. The history of the Beijing Roast Duck can be traced back to as early as the Yuan Dynasty (1206- 1368) when it was listed among the imperial dishes in the Complete Recipes for Dishes and Beverages.

During the Qianlong period (1736-1796), roast duck was a favorite delicacy of the upper classes. According to Recipes from the Suiyuan Garden, the famous cookbook written by the poet and gourmet Yuan Mei, ” Beijing Roast Duck is prepared by revolving a young duckling on a spit in an oven. The chefs of Inspector Feng’s family excel in preparing this dish.” Other scholars, after dining on roast duck, were inspired to poetry. In one collection of old Beijing rhymes (Duan Zhuzhici) one of the poems reads: “Fill your plates with roast duck and suckling pig.” To satisfy the growing demand for roast duck and with an eye on the profits to be made from a good name, many restaurants opened from a good name,

many restaurants opened under the Bianyifang name. In fact, in 1926, nine roast duck restaurants in Beijing carried this name. In the late 1960s the Bianyifang Restaurant’s name was changed to the Chongwenmen Roast Duck Restaurant, but in 1979 it resumed its former title. Its menu includes more than 20 traditional duck dishes, including the Four Delicacies: wing and web, liver, heart and pancreas. Today, Beijing Roast Duck is well received by people from both home and abroad. Knowing the history of the dish, we will enjoy it with another motion, not only enjoy its taste but also its history and culture.
