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 Ms. Ho*** from: When to get my Tibet permit

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.  

Questions:

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
