China's meteorological department forecast Friday that snow and sleet were likely to hit central and east China in the next three days due to the co-influence of cold air and southwest warm moist airflow.

There will be light to moderate snow or sleet in some parts of northwest and northern regions, the Yellow River and Huaihe River valleys, the Yangtze and Huaihe River valleys, central and northern part of the Yangtze and Hanjiang River valleys as well as the northeastern part of southern China. Heavy snowfall may occur in some of the areas.

Western part of Central China's Hunan province and eastern part of southwest Chinas's Guizhou province were expected to have freezing rain.

From Friday to Saturday, southern part of Tibet will encounter heavy snowfall or even blizzards, while the temperature on the Qinghai-Tibet plateau may drop drastically by six to 10 degrees Celsius or 12 degrees Celsius in some places, accompanied by strong wind.

It is necessary to take measures to prevent cold and keep warm in time. If you are walking on your own, you should prepare anti-freezing equipment for warm clothes and quilts, drinking water, dry food, flashlights, fire equipment and traffic equipment. Keep away from billboards, makeshift structures and old trees outside to avoid being stung. Be careful when passing under the bridge, eaves, etc., if necessary, you can bypass the road, so when we go out to enjoy the beautiful scenery, we must first ensure our own safety while enjoying the beautiful sceneries.

Hello, we are considering to travel in Tibet in summer. We are a family of 5, two adults and three kids, age 13(then), 10, 8. We are interested in the 10 days Mt. EBC & Namtso Lake Group tour. We are US citizens with valid 10-year Chinese multiple entry visa, which we have applied when we went to Beijing in 2019. We are currently living in South Korea.  

Questions:

1. Are kids suitable (or even allowed) for this tour?  

2. If kids can join, are there any discount deals for kids?

Answered by Helen

Dear Ms. Ho***,

    Greetings from Helen at Budget Tibet Tour and welcome you to join our 10 days Mt. Everest & Namtso Lake group tour. For your questions: 1. Your kids are suitable for this tour. Travelling in Tibet is as safe for kids as it is for their parents. While the high Tibetan plateau may be the highest place on the planet, very often, the kids that visit this region are more adaptable and have fewer problems than their parents. We also have arranged wonderful Tibet tours for many families with kids such as a tour to EBC for a family with a 3-year-old son, a 9-year-old girl and a 11-year-old boy, they did have fun in Tibet and there is no problem for them. Or you can take some medicine under the guidance of doctor to prevent high altitude before enter Tibet. 2. If kids travel with you, we'll offer some discount for them, please check your email and find more detailed information. Thanks & Regards
