How to Keep Healthy while Traveling in Tibet
Unlike any other places on the planet, the land of Tibet features high altitude, harsh climate and unique complex terrains, making it a destination of certain health concerns. Altitude sickness will be the main issue, but there is no need to get too nervous, for anyone who will feel uncomfortable after ascends to more than 3000 meters. Just learn to adjust and know more about how to avoid it. In addition, strong radiation and dry air are also risks to travelers’ health to some degree.
Travelers should not worry too much about your journey in Tibet, as long as you have an average fitness, prepare well before your departure, and take your health into consideration during the tour. Highly recommended what-to-do includes: reserve enough time for acclimation at lower altitude; drink enough water and eat fruit and vegetables; prepare skin care products to prevent from sunburns; bring first-aid kit containing medicine in common use, as it is difficult to find a hospital or clinic especially when travelling in remote areas of Tibet.
