As a train trip to Tibet is really a long journey, travelers cannot keep their regular life and will get tired easily, especially for seniors. Therefore, seniors are highly recommended to take sleeper berth. In addition, the life on the Tibet train is not as convenient as in a hotel or at their own house. Therefore, it is best to prepare enough daily necessities, like napkins, towels, toothbrush, cup for drinking hot water, etc.

It is also necessary for seniors to have a through physical examination before starting the Tibet train tour. Seniors with uncontrolled glycuresis, epilepsy, high blood pressure, heart diseases, blood diseases, cranial vascular diseases, chronic respiratory system diseases, cardiovascular or hepatic diseases are not suitable for travelling to Tibet. Besides, it is best to take along drugs in common use like hypotensor and vasodilator since it is hardly to find a hospital along the Qinghai-Tibet railway.

Moreover, seniors are not recommended to travel alone. It is best to join a Tibet tour group if they do not travel with friends or family members. In this case, other travelers can take care of them during the trip.

During the Tibet train tour, seniors should have enough rest, drink enough water, eat some fruit and vegetable.
