At 3650 meters above sea level, Lhasa is the highest city in Tibet. It is the Tibetan Sovereign Region’s capital city, a historically, religiously, and traditionally rich area. The Dalai Lama’s residence, Lhasa, means “Place of the Gods” in Tibetan. Tibet, a land of legends and mystery, is likely the ideal location for cultural and adventure seekers.

Yes, it is entirely risk-free. Tibetans are among the friendliest and most welcoming people on the planet. Because they practice Buddhism, the number of criminals is low. And while most roads in Tibet are well-paved and generally safe to travel by car, bike, or trekking, some areas, particularly during the summer (monsoon season), maybe in bad condition.
You need to consider three main items when packing: your destination, your mode of transportation, and your own health. For example, if you’re only staying in Lhasa, you’ll only need the most minimal outdoor gear. If you want to pedal to EBC, however, you’ll need some professional gear. If you have a medical condition, always consult your doctor for advice and medications to carry to Tibet.
