It is reported that from the 1st July, 2010, the Chinese Ministry of Railways will launch another Shanghai-Lhasa Train Express to meet tourists' demand to both visit the Shanghai Expo and Tibet while enjoy the Qinghai-Tibet Railway.
Before the 1st, July the train between Shanghai and Lhasa departs every other day, it obviously cannot meet the huge tourism boom thanks for the ongoing Expo. Now, tourists in Shanghai can take train to Lhasa every day after visiting the Expo, and Tibetan people now also have more opportunity and options to visit the Expo in Shanghai. The train from Shanghai to Lhasa departs at 20:08 PM and almost cost 48 hours.

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
