I'm leaving for my um-tenth trip to Shenzhen tomorrow, but I've carved out next week to go to Tibet. First time visitor. Half the time will be in Lhasa and the balance will be traveling to and from Everest base camp. My son and I are going to spend about 5 minutes doing touristy stuff, and then do a lot of "street photography" - both urban and rural.
Has anyone made this trip before? Any tips? I've read everything on the web about altitude sickness (AMS), so I'm comfortable with that. I got the full load of drugs to take. What about restaurants / bars / stuff to buy?
