Advice of Clothes, Food and Notes during Tibet Tour


Due to the high altitude of Tibet and lower temperature than other main lands of China, you'd better take enough warm clothes whatever the seasons you come to Tibet. The overall temperature of Namtso Lake and Mt. Everest Base Camp is lower than other areas of Tibet even in July, August and September. It is rainy season from July to September in Tibet in general. When comes to the middle period of September, the weather condition may become better while more sunny days appear.

The suitable coats, comfortable pants and soft trekking shoes should be waterproof because they are important for tourists during Tibet tour. During the rainy season, the down jacket and fleece are both useful if you travel in Lhasa City and Nyingchi Prefecture. The soft and flexible trekking shoes are helpful when you walk on the rough road. In addition, personal sleeping bags are also required especially overnight in Mt. Everest Base Camp and Rongbuk Monastery, because the accommodation condition there is not as good as it in Lhasa City.


Generally speaking, Sichuan Restaurant is everywhere in Tibet. So, you will have a chance to taste the spicy food in Tibet. It costs you about 1-2 US dollars for breakfast, 10-15 US dollars per person for lunch and dinner. Some of the famous restaurants are kindly suggested for your reference.

Firstly, the restaurant of the western suburb of Lhasa City is famous for the hot pot. It is close to Potala Palace. Secondly, some restaurants near Nyangre Road are famous for the Sichuan food. Thirdly, some small restaurants along the road between Barkhor Street and Yak Hotel are also suggested to you.
