Above High altitude
2 of us eat some pills around 10 days before arrival Lhasa and also stop around 1 week medium to heavy sport (I used to play badminton 2-3 times per week)
4 of us have high altitude after 2-3 hours after we land Lhasa by flight, so I can say, no use at all to eat pills in advance
No bathing for the first days and to me, even second day
High altitude is really like a nightmare, headache and seem like someone hit your head, tell you guy one thing and then you can imagine how, first night when I try to set the alarm in my iPhone 6 plus, in the past, just 1 min process, but I did almost like in 5 min, that time I wonder: “ is iPhone provide this service ?”, so you can imagine !
Eat the local Lhasa pills, my fd take Diaomxi and even drink ‘Red Bulls’ (tell more later), then problems can release better after 2 days, but come back again in EBC, tell more later
when we travel in Lhasa city, I can see Oxygen is 64%, wow….cool !
Lake / Tso
There is so many lakes / tso in this area, to me the most impressive is: Zhai Namco Tangra Yumco, will try to tell more later
this place near border Nepal, it is a bit boring when just go over there as it is very dry and hot, seem nothing, BUT after visit the restaurant, the chef told us we must see some place, then to me, totally change, also we meet Tibet’s tour guide who bring 2-3 car Indian people to Lake Manaarovar and also to Mt. Kaliash, interesting..
Way back from Shiquan River to Lhasa
Most of the road is bumpy road but we see so many new construction. This is a very long way and so tired
– Tibet visa is very professional and well co-operate, I would like to give credit to Cindy Cao as she always a big help, reply to my e-mail or web chat very quickly, thanks Cindy Cao!
Land Cruiser 4WD
Nice car, just don’t understand why the car don’t open air-condition as when drive over in bumpy road, then all the sand / dirty come over from outside to car
– Nice, even he cannot speak too much Mandarin, but we can communicate and play together !
Try to mention what I see and my feeling day by day, also upload some photos later, that all at the moment ! Hope it will not be too boring !
