Find a Hospital in Tibet

You can find hospitals in major towns in Tibet, but the standard of most hospitals in Tibet is not very high, only with basic facilities. The medical and sanitary conditions of most hospitals are not as satisfactory as those in developed areas. However, in an emergency, they can still give basic medical treatments and be of great value in saving a life when necessary. Western pharmaceutical treatment, Tibetan herbal remedies and Chinese herbal remedies are also accessible. If you have mild altitude sickness or need a rabies vaccine, a small clinic in might be also practical.
