Frequently Asked Questions about Tibet Trekking Tour

When is the best time to do trekking in Tibet?

Traveling to Tibet is possible at any time of the year, but April to October is the best time for trekking in Tibet. In this period, the climate is mild and the temperature is not so cold as winter, when heavy snows always block some mountain roads. In Spring and autumn season, it is especially recommended to trekking to Everest Base Camp under clear air and stable weather. Summer season, on the other hand, is suitable to trek in Tibet as well.

How to avoid altitude sickness when trekking in Tibet?

Tibet is at an average elevation of over 4,000 meters, and most treks here involve high mountain passes higher than 5,000 meters. So, it is important to pay attention to the altitude sickness during trekking in Tibet. First, it is suggested to spend a few days acclimatizing in Lhasa, which is at a lower altitude, before you start the trekking. Pack medication for altitude sickness in your first aid kit, drink more water and ascend slowly during your walk. Avoid a cold, or you may get vulnerable to altitude sickness. If you feel any of the symptoms of altitude sickness, you should let your guide know. And the best treatment is to descend to a lower altitude to rest.
