Tibet Train and Lhasa Railway
Qinghai-Tibet Railway, currently the only railway that links Tibet and Mainland China, is a man made miracle. The Tibet Railway holds many world records: the world’s highest railway and highest railway station, and the world’s longest track on frozen earth.
The journey on the Tibet Train from Mainland China to Tibet is truly an unforgettable experience. En route you will enjoy the diverse and marvelous landscape of snow capped mountain ranges, turquoise plateau lakes, vast grasslands with grazing yaks, colorful prayer flags, and charming Tibetan villages. As the train zips along the railway, the amazing scenery through the train window is like an ever changing landscape painting unfolding in a documentary film.
The Tibet Train currently departs from seven main gateway cities: Beijing, Chengdu, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Xining, Lanzhou, and Chongqing. However, passengers can also board the train from mid-way stations, such as Xi’an.
