Tibet Train Dining & Drinking

Meals on board the train are not included in the ticket price. The train has a dining car and offers passengers 3 meals a day. Dining car is the best location for day-time sightseeing thanks to its big window. While you view the beautiful landscapes of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, you can also order some food; drinks, snacks and meals are all available there. Normally, noodles, porridge, steamed buns, eggs and pickles are served at breakfast; while at lunch and dinner, you can order some delicious meals including fried meat and vegetables, chicken and fish are also available too.

If the dining car is fully occupied, there is also meal trolley, snack trolley and fruits trolley service too; the trolley service will pass your compartment from time to time. You can buy food at trolley service too.

TIP: We do recommend that you carry more or less your own food on board the train. The quality of food is average and is a tad expensive, particularly the food served at the dining car. Food you can bring like instant noodles, cakes, waters and fruits. The meal served by the meal trolley is much more reasonable than that at the dining car. Also, the free boiled water is available 24 hours around; you can get it at a boiler at each side of each car.

Hello, we are considering to travel in Tibet in summer. We are a family of 5, two adults and three kids, age 13(then), 10, 8. We are interested in the 10 days Mt. EBC & Namtso Lake Group tour. We are US citizens with valid 10-year Chinese multiple entry visa, which we have applied when we went to Beijing in 2019. We are currently living in South Korea.  


1. Are kids suitable (or even allowed) for this tour?  

2. If kids can join, are there any discount deals for kids?

Answered by Helen

Dear Ms. Ho***,

    Greetings from Helen at Budget Tibet Tour and welcome you to join our 10 days Mt. Everest & Namtso Lake group tour. For your questions: 1. Your kids are suitable for this tour. Travelling in Tibet is as safe for kids as it is for their parents. While the high Tibetan plateau may be the highest place on the planet, very often, the kids that visit this region are more adaptable and have fewer problems than their parents. We also have arranged wonderful Tibet tours for many families with kids such as a tour to EBC for a family with a 3-year-old son, a 9-year-old girl and a 11-year-old boy, they did have fun in Tibet and there is no problem for them. Or you can take some medicine under the guidance of doctor to prevent high altitude before enter Tibet. 2. If kids travel with you, we'll offer some discount for them, please check your email and find more detailed information. Thanks & Regards
