Tibet Senior Tour Moments

Most Asked Questions about Tibet Senior Tour

Is there an age limit for the elderly to visit Tibet?

Well, there is no such an official age limit for the elderly visiting Tibet. So far, some of the oldest clients we have received are 84-year-old American lady who visited EBC with her daughter who was at the age of 60, and another German client who made it both to EBC and Mt.Kailash at the age of 82.
Though they are the exceptional cases, it proves that so long you are physically fit and have the spirit for travel and adventure, you can make it to Tibet, with our senior-friendly services.

Are tourist facilities senior-friendly in Tibet?

Admittedly, the hotels and infrastructures have been greatly improved in Tibet in recent years. In Lhasa, Shigatse, and Nyingchi, there are enough paths and parks for the seniors to walk, and restrooms are much easier to be found in downtown. In Lhasa, some of the best hospitals are available for emergent diagnosis and treatment.
If you travel beyond Lhasa, esp. to the remote western areas or places with high altitudes like EBC or Lake Namtso and Mt.Kailash, the facilities remain very basic. The local guesthouse and pit toilet are the common scene.

Which elderly people are not suitable for Tibet tour?

Due to the high altitude (averaging 4,000m above the sea level) and huge temperature change and thin air, Tibet enjoys much praise and abuse for its otherworldly landscapes and harsh environment. For both the young and old, it’s a challenge for acclimatization.
If you happen to have cardiovascular diseases or hypertension, you are not suitable for visiting Tibet. You’d better consult your doctor for an accurate evaluation.

Can the elderly easily get altitude sickness in Tibet?

Well, actually whether or not you will have altitude sickness has more to do with your gene and what you do to get acclimatized than your age. So, there is no need to panic. Instead, following our local expert’s advice to avoid altitude sickness will help you dispel worries and quickly adapt yourself to the altitude ascent.

What is the best time to visit Tibet for senior travelers?

Summertime (from June to early Sept.) is your best time for Tibet travel. It’s the time when the verdant grasslands and trees enhance the oxygen content in the air. You can enjoy more moisture in the air, which makes your skin feel more comfortable as you travel in Tibet.
Besides, it is also the best time to enjoy the various Tibetan festivals like Shoton Festival Saga Dawa Festival and Horse-racing festivals,etc. The lively festivities and expected local encounters will leave you a mesmerizing journey.
Although summer is the monsoon season in Tibet, the constant downpours are hardly seen on lofty Tibetan Plateau. The unique terrain and weather often lead to rainfall at night. While the western Tibet sees little precipitation even in summer.

What the elderly should prepare before visiting Tibet?

In addition to preparing travel formalities like Tibet Travel Permit, you are expected to bring enough warm clothes, like thermal underwear, down jackets, sweaters, wind-proof jackets, etc. to brave the cold at lofty mountain passes and drastic temperature change.
For senior travelers, do prepare personal medication for pre-existing diseases if you have and get medicines for eye drops, cold relief, diarrhea, and mountain sickness pills from the pharmacists. Toiletries and sun-protection gears and vacuum flask are also needed.

What are the recommended tours for senior travelers?

Well, it depends on your interest, physical level, and how long you decide to stay in Tibet. For most of the senior travelers, we suggest that you take it easy and focus on your visit to the attractions and parks in downtown Lhasa. You can spend 3 days in Lhasa to cover the most iconic attractions like Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, and Barkhor Street and explore “Great Three Gelugpa Monasteries”, i.e. Sera, Drepung and Ganden monastery.
The Zongjiao Lukang Park and Norbulingka Palace are exceedingly elderly-friendly for the visit. You can discover the local lives and enjoy the summer palace of former Dalai Lamas.
If you love to enjoy serene holy lakes, do add one or two days to visit turquoise Lake Yamdrok, and enchanting Lake Namtso, the incredible view will blow your mind away. If you have long dreamed to admire mighty Himalayan peaks and closely observe Mt. Everest, the classic 8-day Lhasa to EBC small group tour and 9-day EBC private tour will offer you flexible options.
