Frequently Asked Questions

How to get to Tibet from China?

At present, there are two main ways for travelers to get to Tibet from China, taking a flight or taking a train.

Before the construction of the Qinghai Tibet Railway, international travelers mainly can access Tibet from mainland China by air as taking a flight to Tibet is the fastest way. Tourists can fly to Tibet from some major Chinese cities, such as Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an, Chongqing, Chengdu Guangzhou and Hongkong.

After the opening of the Qinghai Tibet Railway, a great number of travelers get the chance to enter Tibet by train. Although the duration time of the train is long(usually 22 to 50 hours according to your departure city), the scenery along the railway is amazing. And it is the best way to adapt to the high altitude sickness for first-time visitors. Tourists can book Tibet train tickets from the following cities, namely Xi’an, Shanghai, Xining, Chengdu, Beijing, Lanzhou, Guangzhou, and Chongqing. You’d better book it in advance, especially in the peak tourism season.

China can be visited all year round, while Tibet is closed to foreigners from February to April for celebrating the Tibetan New Year. Because of the high altitude, the temperature in Tibet is lower than the other places of the same latitude. So the Tibetan winter is cold and chilly. The best time to visit Tibet is from May to October, during which you can avoid the sweltering summer and chilly winter.

Before traveling to Tibet, you’d better plan several days' tour in 2 or 3 cities of mainland China like Beijing, Xián, Chengdu, etc. You will surely feel the sense of thousands of years’ precipitation as China has rich culture about architecture, tradition, customs,  cuisine, religion, etc. China is somewhere filled with unexpected surprises. You may want to have your own firsthand experience.

In Tibet, you can not only see the art of nature by touching the endless prairies and blue sky but also feel the sweet tears of faith by witnessing the real life of local Tibetan.
