Besides, taking airplanes and trains is a test of the adaptability to high altitude. If you reach Lhasa, which is about 3,650 meters above sea level, you will suffer from altitude sickness on the first or second day. To help you adjust to altitude faster, it is recommended not to run or walk too much or eat too much. Do not bathe for two or three days before your planned arrival in order to avoid catching a cold, which is likely to aggravate the symptoms of altitude sickness and lead to physical overload that will affect your travel plans.
