    9. Should I worry about altitude sickness when travelling in Lhasa (Tibet)?

    Due to its high altitude of over 3,650 meters, high altitude sickness can be a concern for travelers visiting Lhasa. However, don't worry - most travelers are able to adjust to the altitude and experience Lhasa without any issues.

    Here are some tips to help prevent and manage altitude sickness during your Lhasa tour:

    (1) Acclimatize slowly: It's important to acclimatize gradually to the high altitude by spending a few days in Lhasa before undertaking any strenuous activities. This will give your body time to adjust to the thinner air and lower oxygen levels.

    (2) Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water and other fluids to avoid dehydration, which can worsen altitude sickness symptoms.

    (3) Avoid alcohol, tobacco, and caffeine: These substances can dehydrate you and make it more difficult for your body to acclimatize to the high altitude.

    (4) Eat light and healthy meals: Eat light, nutritious meals to help your body adjust to the high altitude and avoid heavy or greasy foods that can make you feel more sluggish.

    (5) Take medication: Medications such as acetazolamide (Diamox) can help prevent altitude sickness by increasing ventilation and reducing fluid buildup in the lungs. However, it's important to consult with a doctor before taking any medication for altitude sickness.

    (6) Rest: Take breaks and rest often during your Lhasa tour to give your body time to adjust and avoid overexertion.

It was a great experience in Tibet, and I was sick the first day I arrived. I contacted the travel agency and changed the travel arrangements in time, although I could not visit many scenic spots for physical reasons. I had a great time in Lhasa. I will choose this company for my next Tibet journey. And a big thanks to Ms. Cici, my travel counselor at AOT, who is responsible and caring for me.
