Lhasa, Tibet is now connected with the Railways network with mainland China. From any parts of mainland china you can take the amazing train journey to Lhasa which takes about two days to reach the capital. Roads and highways in Tibet are pretty much in condition now! Normally we use 4WD jeep, Van or minibus to carry tourists and trucks for kitchen logistics and equipments.
While you are in cities you can get verities of good meals but while you are on a trek or along the highways there are less varieties and not so good food so it is advised to bring some dry food of your own all the time. Due to the high altitude you may feel not so hungry or lose your appetite which is common symptom of altitude, no worry and try to eat as much as you can. You need more energy while you are in the high altitude areas. Many travelers suffer from diarrhea in Tibet, so please be careful with the varieties of food and try to have some light meals with more soups and tea. Please avoid eating raw food like vegetable salads, etc… always try to eat well cooked meals and drink only boiled or sealed packed mineral water.
High Altitude Sickness in Tibet
What is High Altitude Sickness?
High altitude sickness, also known as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), or altitude illness, is a pathological condition at high altitude which is caused by the combination of reduced air pressure and lack of oxygen. An altitude above 3000 meters is usually defined as high altitude, and most places in Tibet are higher than this level. Therefore, AMS is one of the biggest challenges when travelling in Tibet.
