Given that temperatures can range greatly from morning to evening, long-sleeve clothes, a wool sweater, and a jacket are recommended in addition to sunglasses and a sun hat.

    4. Road conditions: Landslides as well as rock and mud slides occur from time to tirne during Tibet's rainy season. A full or partial refund will not be issued should the itinerary be interrupted by weather conditions or natural disasters.

    5. Culture: Participants are expected to be mindful and respectful of the local culture and traditions. Participants must walk clockwise when visiting temples, chapels, pagodas and similar structures.
