"Due to the high altitude, it..." Lhasa Favorite Tip by yuk13

Lhasa General: 53 reviews and 62 photos


Favorite thing: Due to the high altitude, it is highly recommended to get there by train and bus instead of directly arrive at Lhasa Airport by air. Normally, you need to figure out your visiting plan in the first few days very carefully in order that your body has time to adapt to the high altitude. You can visit and explore the great Tibet of wide variety only if you can manage the harsh environment first.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
