What should I do when approached by beggars?

Giving money or food to a pilgrim is considered an act of merit in Tibet. Donations of one Yuan or more are appropriate.

However, we advice you not to give money to any young beggars in the street. They are professional beggars and you should wave them off as the Tibetan locals do.
