    10. Is it easier to get High altitude sickness if visiting Tibet in winter?
    icon

    In response to this problem, I would like to say that there will be a little impact, but not that much. Because if you got high altitude sickness, regardless when to go, you will get affected anyway. The best way to prevent high altitude is depend on how your physical can adapt with the environment and always maintain a positive attitude. By the time you reached there, you may discover it is actually not as horrible as you would imagine.

Trip to Tibet
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.
