Travelling in Tibet provides opportunities for unique cultural experiences and outdoor adventure; as the 2014 travel season draws near travel groups around the world are planning their visit. Many travelers agree that touring Tibet differs from visiting many other popular travel destinations and requires special preparation. To help travelers plan their tour TibetCtrip Travel Service- TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com) shares new tips and facts for preparation.
- With an average elevation of 4,900 meters travelers can expect to notice the difference in altitude as soon as they get off the plane! Over the next couple days it’s best to stay well hydrated and avoid intense physical activity. Tours by Tibet travel agency TCTS typically include an easy paced sightseeing tour of Lhasa in order to allow travel groups time to acclimatize.
- Pack for a variety of weather conditions. Weather on a tour of Tibet can vary depending on location, time of year, and time of day. In higher altitude areas, especially while trekking, clothes that can be layered are the way to go. A warm sunny day can quickly turn to rain or snow then drop to below freezing once the sun sets.
- Using and accessing money on a Tibet tour can be different than what most travelers are used to. While some banks can process cash advances, as a general rule of thumb don’t expect to use credit cards. Reliable ATMs are available throughout Tibet but to head off problems its best to withdraw cash before the tour leaves Lhasa. The local currency is the Chinese Yuan (RMB), exchange services are available at a variety of locations although banks typically offer the best rates.
Travelers agree that adequate preparation is key to getting the most out of visiting Tibet. Tibet Travel can differ greatly from visiting other popular travel destinations; arriving prepared for these differences can turn a frustrating travel challenge into an exciting adventure! With the Tibet travel season right around the corner travelers are encouraged to start planning their Tibet tour now.
