Travelers can take direct trains from 7 gateway cities - Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Chongqing, Lanzhou and Xining to Lhasa. Some famous passing cities along the rail, for example, Xi’an, Suzhou and Changsha can get the train as well. Among the 7 gateway cities, Beijing, Chengdu, Shanghai are most popular because they are not only important international transfer hubs but also full of famous attractions. Xining is also recommended strongly because it is the nearest city to Lhasa by train, and you can stay there for one or two days to acclimatize the high altitude before arrival at Lhasa. Even though there are 7 train routes to Tibet, the train tickets still sell out very quickly, especially during summer and holidays. So you’d better book the train ticket as early as possible. According to the policy at present, one can book the ticket up to 30 days in advance.
