- Trip Notes
Tickets: 150 RMB for admission and 120 RMB for sightseeing vehicle are needed.
Altitude Sickness: Because of the high altitude, some people easily get a high altitude sickness. Drinking enough water and taking enough replenishment is important, but never be crapulent.
Clothing: It is necessary to take enough warm clothes and water-repellent shoes in spring, autumn and winter because of the low temperature.
UV Protection: The ultraviolet ray is rather strong, so sunglasses, sun scream and rain gears are helpful to protect you from sunburn in summer.
We recommend that travelers with serious hypertension and/or heart disease do not join this group tour. Due to the higher altitudes, you will also not want to enter Western Sichuan if you have a serious cold.
The altitude of Yading is about 4000 meters above sea level, so many travelers may experience minor altitude sickness. We recommend that you rest as much as possible and drink plenty of water to stay well hydrated. Do not eat too much as the extra burden on your stomach can increase your high altitude sickness. You may want to try some local medicines such as hongjingtian, gaoyuanan etc. to help minimize your symptoms.
Remember to keep yourself warm and don’t take a shower the first day after arriving in high altitude areas.
Skin care is very important on this trip, so remember to bring plenty of sunscreen, lotion, lip balms, etc. as well as sunglasses and hats to protect yourself from the sun.
