Qinghai-Tibet Plateau Travel Tips

Bring enough clothing and paraphernalia. Because the temperature at plateau varies greatly between day and night, you need to add clothing in time to avoid cold. Due to the strong ultraviolet radiation at plateau, sunglasses, sunhat, sunscreen, skin cream, lip balms are all essential supplies.

Pay more attention to dietetic hygiene and eat digestible food. Never drink and eat too much at one meal in case of increasing digestive organs load. Avoid alcohol and smoking, but eat more food rich in vitamins such as vegetables and fruits. You may as well drink some buttered tea, which can ease the altitude stress.

Be sure to keep warm and less bath to prevent cold and exhaustion. Do not cover your head when sleeping and get enough sleep. In addition, the temperature of your sleeping room shouldn’t be too high in case of lack of oxygen.

When you first get to the plateau region, you can neither walk too fast nor do physical work. Fatigue is one of the factors of inducing acute high altitude sickness. Young tourists easily overestimate their own strength, so that which will often worsen the high altitude sickness. Once you are not feeling very well, do not hesitate to consult the doctor.
