Casual wears and comfortable walking shoes are the rule of Tibet . Be sure to bring warm clothing as
nights and early mornings can be quite chilly to down right cold. Indian Pilgrims strictly no Sari. Bring all
the film, medicine, cosmetics, personal toilet items etc. that you will need from home as these are difficult
if not impossible to obtain on the way. A small first aid kit is also a good idea. Also quite useful is a route
map, to know where you are going and have been each day.
What to take
Winter wear: Gore-Tex material, though expensive, is highly recommended. Down jacket, raincoat or
windbreakers, thermal under wears, Jackets, warm trousers & woolen shirts (cotton will also do), warm
sweaters, woolen gloves, sun hat, comfortable shoes, light leather boots in case of snow, woolen
balaclava (‘monkey cap’) & scarf/dust mask to protect your eyes & nose from dust.
Bring with you

purifying tablets. Personal medical kit and Diamox tablet (for high altitude). Sun glasses (to protect your

This is one of the toughest high altitude road journeys on earth. You Must be physically fit – no two ways
about that. Generally patients with asthma & heart problems have a problem acclimatizing to high
altitudes. In your interests it is essential you should be examined by your doctor to know about your
health condition and your ability to cope up with the rigors of high altitude travel for days in ‘no road’
conditions, extreme cold, dust, trekking to an altitude of 19500ft during the Parikrama, etc.
As you are traveling over high terrain, you are likely to experience symptoms and discomfort of altitude
sickness (headache, loss of appetite, nausea, exhaustion, sleeplessness, breathlessness etc.) until your
body adjusts to the elevation. This can take a couple of days or more depending on an individual. For this
reason alone, we have made it mandatory to stay 2 nights at Nyelam (12000ft) and a night in Simikot
those who take journey of Helicopter before moving on to the higher altitudes. Drink plenty of water, be
calm, and do not exercise. Do not drink alcohol or smoke prior to and during the tour. We also
recommend you carry a strip of diamox tablets. Do consult your physician on the dosage. We provide
Gamow bag (a special equipment to prevent sickness from high altitude) on this tour.
The unit of Chinese currency is Yuan. USD 1 = 7.00 Yuan. approximate; Money can exchange at Bank of
