  • If you enter Tibet via Kathmandu, you'd better get China visa from Kathmandu because no matter you've already got the visa in your country or not, you must get a visa in Kathmandu, which is regulated in an official memo between China and Nepal.

Altitude Sickness

  • Most of the places in Tibet is over 3500 meters, and many visitors are likely to experience some minor to symptoms and discomfort of altitude sickness (headache, mild nausea, loss of appetite, trouble sleeping) until they adjust to the elevation. It is advisable to rest for several hours to acclimatize to the altitude, drink non-alcoholic liquids, eat light, high-carbohydrate meals for more energy.

  • Potala Palace has limited visitors to 2300 per day to protect the Historical Heritage. Your sightseeing order in Tibet is supposed to be adjusted accordingly.
