Tibet Warnings and Dangers: 46 reviews and 40 photos
The below web site has good information for traveling at high altitude.
Everyone if different. I had very little problems with high altitude. I think I was just lucky and also drank a lot of water. A travel nurse recommended taking multiple vitamins with iron for at least 6 weeks before the trip. I don't know if it helped but I did what she recommended.
But my friend was like an altimeter and had problems every time we went over 4,000 meters. My friend got use to it over time, I think going up and down in the car as we drove to Lhasa helped. We were touring so took about 2 weeks driving up and down at altitude.
The main thing is give your body time to get acclimated to the altitude. Don't fly in to Lhasa and head off to Everest Base Camp (EBC) the next day. EBC is a tourist sight and many people do this.
Drink plenty of water. Just breathing causes a lot of lost of water vapor that you don't even know it's happening. Drinking alcohol will cause problems and I did not.
Please rate this and my other tips when you find useful, interesting, or like the pictures.
