1. Backpack: take less luggage

It is not necessary to carry too much luggage . Just take enough luggage for use. Generally a  backpack less than 45 liters is ok, if you would like to do hiking or camping activities, a large backpack plus a small one will be enough.

2. Clothing: more warm clothes  

Temperature is low in Tibet and there is great difference in temperature between day and night, so down coat and warm sweatshirt are necessary. If you do trekking or mountaineering in Tibet, you should prepare a set of perspiration underwear. In the wild, it is very troublesome when you clothes cling to body for it will take away body heat quickly. In addition, July and August almost  see rain everyday, so you need waterproof equipement for the whole body.

3. Sleeping bags: take “just right” bag

In July and August, taking a 1 kg down sleeping bag is warm enough and its down content must be more than 80%. After being compressed its volume should be no bigger than a big bottle of Coke.

4. Shoes: hiking shoes are first choice

You need a good pair of shoes to travel, especially in Tibet. The best choice is the hard-sole high hiking shoes which can keep out sand, and it is not easy to fall off in the mud, besides it is waterproof and warmer. At the same time you are suggested to bring a pair of slippers used in the bathroom.

5. Sunglasses: more than just cool

Strong ultraviolet radiation and snow reflection will damage the eyes, so a good pair of sunglasses is essential.

6. Sunscreen: to avoid peeling

Tibet Plateau is located at a very high altitude with thin air and direct sunlight, so sunscreen really prevent you from peeling

7. Travel kettle: the source of life

Tibet’s water is very pure, and some can be directly drank. Often after traveling tens of kilometers you still cannot find even a person on the plateau, you never know where the next meal is, so carrying a water bottle is useful.

8. Map & compass: your amulet

In case of being lost, they can help you find the direction.

9. Canned oxygen: standard configuration

The fundamental cause of altitude sickness is hypoxia, so bringing two cans of canned oxygen is more secure.

10. Medicine: do not forget 

Medicine is a must for visitors to Tibet. you should take some pain-killer pills with you and enough medicine for colds, diarrhea, nausea and fever. Some nasal ointment and throat-moistening pills will greatly be of help for those who are sensitive to chilly or freezing weather conditions.
