Frequently Asked Questions

Can seniors travel to Tibet?

If you are healthy enough, you can plan a tour in Tibet. Seniors who are suffering from serious glycuresis, epilepsy, high blood pressure, heart diseases, blood diseases, cranial vascular diseases, chronic respiratory system diseases, cardiovascular or hepatic diseases are not suggested to go to Tibet. You’d better ask for some pieces of advice before heading to Tibet.

To help you adapt to the high altitude sickness, you’d better stay in Lhasa for two or three days. Do not take fierce activities such as jumping and running. Drink more water and have more fruits. Try not to take a shower on the first two days in case of catching a cold.

Due to the high altitude, seniors should pay much attention and do good preparation before traveling to Tibet. Seniors can take some regular exercise and keep a good mood. Running slowly, swimming, climbing mountains can help you strengthen your physical condition and keep healthy. Be sure of avoiding catching a cold before setting foot in Tibet. Take some first-aid medicine for the purpose of dealing with some emergencies.

Altitude sickness is not a disease, but a natural physiological response to elevation. Since it is a physiological reaction, there will be individual differences. Not everyone will have altitude sickness, even if someone people have, it varies in degree. Tourists don't need to worry overly about the troubles caused by altitude sickness symptoms. The Everest base camp is 5,200 meters above sea level, so it's likely to have some symptoms of altitude sickness for most travelers. To avoid altitude sickness, please walk slowly, adjust the breathing rhythm, drink more water, and keep warm to adapt slowly. Our guide will also provide you considerate service throughout the tour at Everest base camp by offering oxygen tank and timely medical assistance. As long as you need it, you can contact the guide at any time. Our priority is the safety and comfort of your touring experience.
