What do I need worry about the #altitude and the coldness in #Tibet? What should I do about the altitude?

For altitude sickness, before you come:
a. Do exercise to improve your fitness and health as possible, both physically and psychologically.
b. Take care of yourself and avoid catching cold, for it is difficult to recover from a cold at high altitude.
c. Prepare necessary medicines against altitude and take high-altitude medication a day before arrival at Tibet.
d. If never go to high altitude before, it is better to consult a doctor and make a medical examination.
e. If you fly to Lhasa, make sure to get a good night's sleep the night before.

After your arrival:
a. Do not brisk walking or running immediate after your arrival, especially if you arrive by air.
b. Take a good rest and don't take shower at the first two days! Avoid catching cold.
c. Avoid tobacco, alcohol or depressant drugs, including barbiturates, tranquilizers, or sleeping pills.
d. If you feel Uncomfortable or your AMS symptoms are mild, do not take oxygen immediately and do adapt to high altitude by yourself or move to lower altitude. Because if you 

quite depend on oxygen, you will find harder to adapt to higher altitude in the next tours.
e. If your symptoms become worse and worse, pleas take oxygen and go to hospital.
f. Drink plenty of water, eat light, high-carbohydrate meals for more energy.
g. If you have any symptoms of AMS, please tell your group members and tour guide in the trip.

For coldness,
April is the spring of Tibet. The ice melts and the weather warms during spring. April is also one of the best months to see Tibet because the weather starts to turn warm, and it is still in the dry season. You are more likely to see the peak of Mt. Everest clearly. In Lhasa, it is sunny and dry with sunshine 8 hours a day. The temperatures range from an average low of 2 °C to a daily average high temperature of 16 °C.

For comfort in the changing temperatures and high UV radiation, you'll need to dress in layers and cover up if you are in the sun for a prolonged time due to the UV radiation. Have a T-shirt, coat, trousers, and a sun hat in Lhasa, and a heavy coat and gloves for higher places. Sunglasses can protect your eyes.

The Black-necked Crane is a very unique bird in Tibetan society, and are favored by Tibetans and called “saint bird of the snow land”. When you take one of our Tibet winter tours, drive from Lhasa and along the Yarlung Tsangpo River to Shigatse city. You can see them on the riverbed.  http://www.tibettravel.org/blog/black-necked-crane-in-tibet/
