    Health

    Each tour participant must be responsible for the condition of his or her own health and must decide whether he or she is fit to travel.  Those with existing medical conditions must get approval from their doctor beforehand.  Spring Travel assumes no legal responsibility for participants' health problems. Travelers to Tibet are required to provide a doctor's certificate stating that he/she is fit to travel and his/her blood pressure and heart condition are normal. This is a necessary requirement because of the possible effects that the very high altitude may have.

Excess baggage fees are the sole responsibility of the client. Regulations within China specify that all suitcases must have a locking device attached. Failure to follow this regulation may result in refusal by airport staff to load suitcases onto the aircraft.
