3. crack the first time into the Tibetan doubts

1. About altitude sickness

Image from the web

High anti or depends on the innate cell oxygen carrying capacity, and physical quality is not necessarily linked, it is not strong and strong people must be more likely than the elderly children to overcome the high anti.
Plateau reaction symptoms are generally manifested as: headache, dizziness, shortness of breath, chest tightness, insomnia, vomiting, lips purple, loss of appetite, malaise, muscle pain and so on.
People often use Rhodiola as a drug to prevent and alleviate the high altitude reaction, in fact, if only in a short time to take Rhodiola for the prevention and control of plateau effect is very limited .
It is a headache, then you can follow the instructions to take ibuprofen and other pain medication. If there are other symptoms, do not carry health, timely medical treatment is king.

Many people generally believe that by train into Tibet will have an altitude from low to high process, can be faster to adapt to the plateau environment. But in fact from the Golmud station, all into the Tibetan train compartment are dispersed oxygen, take the train for a long time, the compartment is crowded, often do not get a good rest, so choose the train into Tibet and will not Accelerate the adaptation time to the plateau environment. But because the train into the possession of the sea through the extremely high Tanggula Yamaguchi and other places, tend to increase the high anti. The legendary train into the possession of Tibet to ease the high resistance, often due to a lot of people are not high in the long journey of the train has spent more than half.

2. on the border card

As Tibet is more special, many places, in addition to identity cards, must hold a "border card" to enter, many places more than 100 kilometers away from the border began to check border defense, such as Yadong, camphor, Ali area Border pass.
How does Tibet border defense deal?

Everest Star (taken at Everest base camp) BY A five

Two options:
First, in my own account location for their own : usually the police station or immigration authorities (the procedure is simple, low cost);
Second, to Tibet : Tibet need to handle in the possession of units (such as travel agencies, etc.) Letter, in Lhasa to do more than to the Xigaze office. On the border card, you can write the following places: "Tibet Autonomous Region Dingri County, camphor, Ali area, Medog County, Milling County." Or simply consult the Public Security Bureau of Tibet where those places belong to border control areas, as far as possible all write!

Image from the web

Here I mainly elaborate in Tibet for the process:
in the Lhasa Office to prevent two places to go. First to the Lhasa City Public Security Bureau , at the northern tip of the small Zhaoshu Road, east of the crossroads can be seen Lhasa City Public Security Bureau, with your ID card and letter of introduction to do a side of the letter of introduction letter. (PS: in Tibet for "border card" letter of introduction is the key!) To the
Armed Police Frontier Corps . In the border guards have a small room outside the door to do a special defense, the card fee of eight yuan, another deposit of 30 yuan, within the specified time to return to the deposit can be refunded.
However, in Tibet are generally travel agencies, inn, CYTS agents, the cost is generally ranging from 50-200 yuan . Now in Shigatse can handle, the cost is slightly higher, but if you are the whole process, then return to the local money can also be returned, because one of the largest part is the deposit.

3. Who is not suitable for coming to Tibet?

Qinghai-Tibet Railway Company issued the "plateau travel tips" , clearly lists the following six categories of people are not suitable for more than 3,000 meters above sea level to travel:
1, a variety of organic heart disease, significant arrhythmia or resting rhythm> 100 times /Minute.

6, high risk pregnant women.
