Precautions & health care for high altitude sickness:

Because of the high altitude, thin air, cold and arid atmosphere of Tibet, travelers occasionally might suffer from high altitude sickness of different degrees, such as headaches, insomnia, depression and nervousness. To prevent this altitude sickness, we would advise you to have enough rest, drink lots of water at least 3 liters per day, avoid straining or exhausting yourself, move slowly and breathe deeply. For the light sick ones, medicine is not necessary but rest is a prime necessity. While for the seriously sick, tours must be stopped immediately. The patient should lie down in bed and if possible inhale oxygen. Inhaling oxygen is a convenient and effective way of curing altitude sickness.
