Travel to Tibet

To travel to Tibet, you must have some understanding of your physical conditions, know what kind of people are not suitable for the plateau, fully prepared for the trip, then you can play better and more comfortably.

Before planning to go to high altitude, it is important to have a comprehensive and accurate understanding of your own situation, not blindly confident. Especially the first time on the plateau, it is better to have a more comprehensive physical examination, according to the examination results and the doctor’s advice then decide whether to go.

Travel to Tibet

Generally speaking, patients with obvious heart, lung, brain, liver, kidney and other diseases, severe anemia, hypertension and retinal diseases, as well as pregnant women, should not enter the high altitude area. 

Patients suffering from respiratory tract infection and fever with a body temperature above 38 degrees Celsius, or those with obvious respiratory and systemic symptoms, should be suspended from entering the plateau.

According to relevant research and experience, it is recommended not to take children under 10 years old to high altitude.Relatively safe age is in the teens and above, generally in accordance with the standard of about 14 years old.
Due to the overall deterioration of physical functions of the elderly, their immunity and ability to cope with special circumstances are reduced, and they are prone to catch a cold or suffer from intestinal diseases, and are more prone to acute altitude sickness.

Hi Nancy

I want to visit in Oct 2020 and do the Mt Kailash tour. I want to bring two of my grandchildren - aged 8 and 10 years old. Do you think it is possible?

Dear Mr. Ul***,

Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. I think it will be no problem for you to bring your grandchildren to do the trekking, as we had clients before who took child less than 4 years old did it, and they hired porter to carry him for some part. If you like, you can hire a horse and horse man to carry them to save the energy there. And also I recommend you to arrive in Lhasa1-2days earlier to make the children adjust the high place better if you have enough time. And I will send you the tour details, please check it by email. Best regards.
