Clothing and Other Travel Tips

A jacket and a sweater are pretty much essential throughout the year, especially for tours outside Lhasa as the weather may unexpectedly change at any time! Other useful items include a flashlight, comfortable walking shoes, sun hat, sunglasses, suntan lotion and more warm clothes.

Transportation will be either by land cruiser or by mini bus depending on the size of the group and road conditions. Trips to the Everest Base Camp will always be operated by land cruiser due to bad road conditions.

Tibet is 8 hours ahead of GMT, because it is the same as Beijing time. The time difference with Nepal is therefore +2.15 hours.

Tibet has only a handful of towns, and Tibetan cuisine is not exactly the most varied in the world. Although it is certainly possible to get some good food, you might want to bring additional items such as nuts, muesli, chocolate and other dry food. Since you can get hot boiled water almost everywhere throughout Tibet it is also handy to bring some instant coffee, hot
chocolate or soup.

Travelling in Tibet involves high altitude and can be strenuous. If you have heart or lung problems, blood diseases or other conditions that can be affected by altitude, you should consult your doctor before booking the trip. Very rare cases of altitude sickness have been
reported but simple headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorders can happen during the acclimatization process. You are advised to drink at least 3 litres of water a day, not to strain yourself, to move slowly, breathe deeply and take regular rest breaks.

After bookings are confirmed, a cancellation fee of 50% will apply.

We will try our best to make your trip smooth and enjoyable as possible, but it may be necessary to change the program or re-route or hire extra means of transportation etc due to natural and other factors beyond our control. In such case all extra expenses have to be borne by the clients themselves on the spot. There will be no refund or any kind of compensation resulting from such losses or additional unforeseen expenses. So please make sure you have an insurance policy that adequately covers such expenses.
