This is the first day that you enter Tibet. Your guide will greet you at the airport or railway station and transfer you to the lovely hotel. It usually takes around 1.5 hours to drive from Lhasa Airport to downtown Lhasa and takes about 20mins from Lhasa Railway Station. Tourists could have a look at Yarlung Tsangpo River, the largest and longest river in Tibet on their way to the hotel. After check-in, you can have a good rest first. And if you feel like to go out, you can wander around the city. But just remember that don't take too much stuff, try to go with a light pack. Meanwhile, drink some more water. It’s really useful to get acclimatized to the high altitude.

We are a group of western teachers wanting to do the Beijing to Lhasa train trip. We are wanting to know the approximate cost of a trip for 7-8 days which unfortunately is our limitation. I would like to get to view Everest if that is possible and get out into the country areas more. Look forward to hearing from you. Regards Lexie
