  • The timetable above is just for reference.
  • We can NOT offer ticket-only service. According to the Tibet Government, foreign visitors must book a tour from a travel agency and obtain a Tibet Entry Permit before booking Tibet train ticket.
  • Tibet train tickets are quite popular and always sold out quickly, please make your enquiry at least 3-5 months before your departure date.
  • Because the hard and soft sleeper tickets from Beijing to Lhasa are few and hard to get, we recommend you to take a flight to Xining, and then take train from Xining to Lhasa.
