Accommodation

We will be staying at Kyichu Hotel in Lhasa, Yeti Hotel in Gyantse, Gesar Hotel in Shigatse and Rongbuk Monastery Guest House in Rongbuk. It is also possible to upgrade to a better hotel in Lhasa, but the accommodations in other cities and towns are the best available ones. All accommodations are on a twin-shared basis. Single supplement will be served on request and will cost an additional US $ 320.

Meals

Only breakfasts are included in this trip. We are expected to pay for lunches and dinners on our own. Breakfast will be taken in the same place we stay for the night. Similar arrangements can also be made for dinner. Lunch will be taken en route to the next destination(s). We recommend our guest(s) to budget Yuan 60 to Yuan 100(US$10 to US$16) for lunch and dinner in a single day. We will mainly eat Tibetan bread, dal (lentil soup), bhat (rice), tsampa porridge and other simple local foods.

Acclimatization

The higher the altitude, the less oxygen there is in the air. Our body needs a few days to acclimatize to this less-oxygen environment. During this tour we will be spending the first three nights in Lhasa which will give us plenty of time for acclimatization. We will also be driving in high altitude areas during the rest of our journey. Therefore, exercising or jogging regularly, preferably in high altitude for some weeks prior to the trip is a good idea. Himalayan Glacier still recommends its guest(s), especially those with known heart or lung or blood diseases to consult their doctor before traveling. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorders are all symptoms of AMS.

Best Seasons

Spring (April and May), summer (June, July and August) and autumn (September, October and November) are the best seasons for this Lhasa to Everest Base Camp to Lhasa Tour. We can also equally enjoy this trip during winter months, but it may get a bit cold.
