Why Do not Go to Tibet When Catching a Cold？
I suppose most travellers to Tibet are advised not to Tibet with a cold. But why do not go to Tibet when catching a cold? You probably ask like.
You know, altitude sickness is a big problem for many travelers to Tibet. If you go to Tibet with a bad cold, the possibility for you to suffer from altitude sickness increases because the cold always destroys people's physical function and resistance. Travelers planning to travel to Tibet should note that you are not suitable to go to Tibet before your cold symptoms get cured completely. The cold symptoms might easily cause a series of severe altitude sickness, such as the pulmonary edema – a bad altitude disease which threatens your life.
If you catch a cold during the Tibet tour, you are highly suggested to cure it as soon as possible. If you are in Lhasa, there are a lot of experienced doctors knowing how to help you get rid of the cold. However, if you are travelling at remote areas of Tibet, it is difficult to find a doctor. Therefore, some commonly used medicines effective in dealing with the cold symptoms should be taken into your package.
