Tibet remains one of the most interesting, remote and undeveloped parts of the world, situated at an average elevation of 5,000(16,000ft) above sea level. Its limited facilities for tourists are only now approaching a reasonable standard.
A trip to Tibet is not for the faint hearted; the traveling can be hard, adventurous and often unpredictable. Due to Tibet’s high altitude travelers with a history of heart, lung or anemia problems should consult a doctor before even thinking about a visit.
Visitors should also understand before taking this trip that Tibet was only opened to tourism 19 years ago. The infrastructure of the tourist industry is still very basic in this remote country. Please do not expect the standards you are accustomed to in the West. However, every effort will be made under the circumstances to ensure a smooth and pleasant trip.
