Tibet Railway Schedule and Fare

For centuries, Tibet was isolated from the outside world due to the extreme climate, remote location, and poor transportation. Except for some bold adventurers and explorers, few people travel to Tibet. However, as the finish of the Qinghai-Tibet railway in 2006, Tibet has started a new chapter. Travelers from all directions take train to Lhasa for the breathtaking scenery along the way. The Qinghai-Tibet railway winds through mountains, glaciers, shimmering salt lakes and charming villages, taking all travelers to a gorgeous world.
Currently, there are a total of seven cities available to take train to Lhasa. The post below offers the Tibet train schedule and fare. Keep reading to get the details.

user portrait Mr. To*** from: What documents are required to travel from Nepal to Tibet?

Hello  I am planning a trip to Katmandu and on to Lhasa and Mt. Kalias. I am  pilgrim. Let me know costs and details I intend to fly or go overload from Katmandu Lhasa etc. Thx.

Answered by Helen

Dear Mr. To***,

Thanks very much for your inquiry. Travelling to Tibet from Nepal, you need to apply for Chinese Group Visa in Kathmandu. Firstly, we'll apply for visa invitation letter with copy of your passport. Next, we'll send visa invitation letter to you and our partner in Kathmandu. When you arrive in Kathmandu, you need to meet with our partner and give them your original passport, then they will go to Chinese embassy and apply for Chinese Group Visa for you. When you board plane from Kathmandu to Lhasa, they'll only check your passport and Chinese Group Visa. Apart from Chinese Group Visa, you also need Tibet Permit, we'lll apply for Tibet Permit for you in Lhasa, and our guide will pick you up at Lhasa airport with your permit. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Thanks & Regards
