I am heading to China in September and my aim is to visit Tibet for up to 12 days if possible. Could you please help me with some of the questions below?
1. should I book a tour in advance or should I wait until I get to Chengdu and book it from there? I don't mind staying in Chengdu for 2 or 3 days before departing for Tibet. I am hoping to use a tour group based in Lhasa. I also prefer train.
2. What is the price estimation for the 12 days group tour with guide?
3. How do I prepare for high altitude as I have heard that most people get altitude sickness and would be out of action for a few days.
Thanks for your help.
