Now that travelers are arriving for their 2015 Tibet travel adventures the most successful groups are likely to be the ones that arrive well prepared. More often than not, visitors end up with more questions than they can immediately find reliable answers for when prepping for their tour. To help ensure that travelers arrive ready to take maximum advantage of their time in Tibet, Lhasa based [travel agency Tibet __title__ Travel agency Tibet]Ctrip Travel Service-TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com) shares expert travel tips.
What to pack
The time of year and type of tour often dictate what to pack. In any case, travelers will want to bring comfortable walking shoes, a warm jacket in case temperatures get cold at night (even during the summer, especially in high altitude areas), in addition to sunscreen and other items that protect from the sun. Also, familiar over the counter medications and personal hygiene items are a good idea; while they can be purchased in Tibet having them ready to go can save a lot of stress.
Avoiding altitude sickness
The truth is that most who embark on a tour of Tibet will feel mild effects of the altitude; however, it rarely interferes with day-to-day activities. Usually this includes a mild headache and shortness of breath when climbing stairs. Nine times out of ten this is because travelers fail to hydrate well enough before and after arrival. Be sure to take advantage of rest time and avoid excessive alcohol and tobacco use in the few days after arrival.
Avoiding money and baking issues
Come prepared to use cash for all purchases. Local shops and restaurants do not accept credit cards. Reliable ATMs can be found throughout Lhasa but can be sparse in other areas; this also goes for banks that can process cash advances off credit cards.
Arriving well prepared is crucial to getting the most possible out of traveling in Tibet. The cold and dry air, high altitude, and intense sunshine can take a toll on the unprepared. Those who prepare well will be rewarded by unmatched natural beauty and interesting cultural experiences! Now that the 2015 travel season is here it’s time to prepare for an adventure.
