Some tourists who first coming into high plateau may occur high altitude sickness, which signs and symptoms include bad headache, very exhausted at every moment, nausea and vomiting, dizziness, abnormal pant/breath and heartbeat, loss of appetite, and insomnia and so on.

These symptoms in the first day will be very obvious, and then may alleviate or disappear later. But some people may become more serious due to tiredness, cold, upper respiratory tract infection and some other reasons, and become high plateau pulmonary edema or high plateau cerebral edema. So, how to alleviate or prevent high altitude sickness during your Tibet tour? How to avoid the misunderstanding of Acute Mountain Sickness? There are some suggestions.
