When to travel in Tibet
The best season for travel to Tibet is from April to October. July and August are the raining season and the scenery is beautiful, yet the heavy rain will cause a result of bad road condition. Winter is also a good time to visit places along the Yalutsangpo valley, such as Lhasa, Tsetang, Nyinchi, Gyangtse & Shigatse, for the day time temperature is about 15¡æ above zero (about 60 F).

Mountain Sickness
The most important concern of the visitors to Tibet is the mountain sickness, because the average elevation of Tibet is about 4000 meters above sea level. If you have never been to highland before, you may feel a little bit uncomfortable when you first arrive, such as headache, dizzy, heavy breathing, tired and insomnia, for the air there contains less oxygen. But these uncomfortable feelings will disappear automatically after one or two days. Those with heart diseases or high blood pressure should be much more careful and better consult your doctor before going to Tibet.

Adapting to Highland Climate
In order to adapt to highland climate quickly, please take everything easy and have a good rest; drink much more water, better not to smoke or drink alcohol; keep warm to avoid catching cold; prepare some pain-killers for necessary use.

Clothing
Traveling in Tibet, you need to bring some warm clothes, for the temperature differs much during the day and night. Even in Summer time, sweater and jacket are necessary
