I want to bring my mum to JZG, she is 72 years old and in good fit, but I want to avoid gong to scenic spots higher than 3000m, is this possible and are there any best scenic spots below 3000m?
We plan to fly in from Chengdu and back.
I have been to Tibet before and I know what AMS feels like, but I was handling it much better than some others in my group. I've also been to Karakoram Highway and Karakul Lake, but I didn't feel the AMS symptoms except for shortness of breath when walking upwards. It was nothing like the AMS symptoms I had in Tibet.
So, I was wondering, does anyone know what the altitude effect is at JZG, if it's only like Karakul or more like Tibet?
I understand that the airport is at 3500m high, so how was the feeling when you landed?
