Tibet Train Altitude Concerns

Compared with arriving Lhasa by air, train travel is safer in terms of acclimatization. However, it is inevitable to talk about the altitude sickness when introducing the Qinghai-Tibet railway, for most of time it runs above 3500 meters. After checking in on the train, the attendant will ask you to fill a Passenger Health Declaration Form to declare that your health can adapt 3000 meters above high elevation travel.

The highest place of the Qinghai-Tibet railway --Tangula mountain Pass stands at 5072 meters. Tremendous altitude problem would happen if the train was not properly and considerately designed.

The Tibet train has two oxygen supply systems; one is the individual oxygen supply system that works anytime when you need it and it is just under your seat or above your sleeper, very easy to get access to; the other is the central oxygen enrichment system that starts to work after the train arrives at stop of Golmud city which is 2815 meters above sea level, that is to say, after the train passing the stop of Golmud city, all the train cars will be oxygen-enriched. And individual supply is only used when extreme cases take place, yet this seldom happens.

Altimeters are also installed on each train car, the figure on meters changes according to the altitude the train climbs.

Dear sir, madam,

I have a question about the 8-day tour from 29 Jan 2019. I am a solo traveler and really want to go to Tibet to do this tour but is it possible for me join this group tour by my self? Or do I have to be lucky that another solo traveler will join this group?

I am looking forward hearing from you!

Kind regards, Pi***

Hello!


My husband and I are looking at travel in April 2019. We currently are only a group of 2, but it is possible we may have another 2 friends join us.
We are comparing tours for the 7 day tour from Lhasa to Kathmandu. What price can you offer for group tour for 2 (or 4 people) for the Lhasa to Kathmandu trips if we were to book in the next two weeks?


Many thanks,
Ho***

Answered by Nancy

Dear Ms. Ho***,

Greetings from Nancy Chung at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry, if there are 4 people in your group, I recommend you to take it as private tour, thus you will have the guide and driver on your own, and the tour can be flexible. If there are 2 in your group, of course take part in a group tour is better, and we have several groups in April, or we can open a new date based on your travel time, and our group size is 4 to 13 people. And if you will book in next weeks, I can apply some discount for you. Please check the email for more details. Best regards.
