Generally speaking, patients with obvious heart, lung, brain, liver, kidney and other diseases, severe anemia, hypertension and retinal diseases, as well as pregnant women, should not enter the high altitude area. 

Patients suffering from respiratory tract infection and fever with a body temperature above 38 degrees Celsius, or those with obvious respiratory and systemic symptoms, should be suspended from entering the plateau.

According to relevant research and experience, it is recommended not to take children under 10 years old to high altitude.Relatively safe age is in the teens and above, generally in accordance with the standard of about 14 years old.

Dear Mr. To***,

Thanks very much for your inquiry. Travelling to Tibet from Nepal, you need to apply for Chinese Group Visa in Kathmandu. Firstly, we'll apply for visa invitation letter with copy of your passport. Next, we'll send visa invitation letter to you and our partner in Kathmandu. When you arrive in Kathmandu, you need to meet with our partner and give them your original passport, then they will go to Chinese embassy and apply for Chinese Group Visa for you. When you board plane from Kathmandu to Lhasa, they'll only check your passport and Chinese Group Visa. Apart from Chinese Group Visa, you also need Tibet Permit, we'lll apply for Tibet Permit for you in Lhasa, and our guide will pick you up at Lhasa airport with your permit. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Thanks & Regards
