Purchasing their Altitude Sickness Toolkit was one of the best decisions I made for this journey. I followed their suggestions. I did not get altitude sickness. I fully enjoyed my time in Tibet and fell in love with the culture and people of Tibet. As an added bonus, Yolanda and Lobsang provided exceptional customer service. They answered my questions via email and even a Skype a call. i could sense their genuine wishes for my safe travels. If you are going to Tibet, I recommend reviewing the Altitude Sickness Toolkit!

I had a great time in Tibet: Amazing country with interesting culture and amazing sceneries. I experienced no altitude sickness as I was taking Diamox. I was happy to be able to discuss this issue with Yolanda prior to my travel.

It was wonderful to have a trustworthy referral from Yowandu Tibet and to feel confident that we were truly booking with a Tibetan owned company.  This was really important to us.  It was also great to be able to have ongoing email contact, to ask questions and check a few things, as our plans developed.  It is worth taking your time to research and plan well, especially with the altitude levels.  You will find the people and scenery of Tibet wonderful…enjoy!
