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.

Answered by Nancy

Dear Ms. Pa***,

Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry.  At present we do not set any date in Oct 2020, and we can set any date based on yours, and if possible I hope you can come in next half of Oct as all the cost would be cheaper and less people there.

There is environment bus in Kailash, and people can take about 10 km with bus taking, but after that, no vehicle will be available during the trekking, so if your husband cannot take trekking, he has to rest in hotel with our driver and wait all of you come back. And also there is horse hire, people can hire a horse to ride, but as the road off mountain, because it is quite cliffy, so people are not allowed to ride a horse and need to take foot on own. And also the highest mountain pass will be around 5300meters high. So better for him to rest in hotel. But we will visit the holy lake without problem. I will send you more details by email, please check it there, best regards.
