Tibet Train

Tibet, on the lofty Tibetan Plateau on the northern side of the Himalayas, is an autonomous region of China, which shares Mt. Everest with Nepal. It’s nicknamed the “Roof of the World” for its towering peaks. For people going to Tibet for the first time, taking a train is the top choice. At present, there is only one railway connecting Tibet: Qinghai-Tibet Railway, the longest and highest railway built atop a plateau, which is China’s first railroad to Tibet. Normal speed trains serve in Tibet, which has already been open to traffic since July 1, 2006. Tourists can enjoy the stunning scenery along the way, including alpine sceneries full of snow caped mountains, lakes, vast plateau plains littered with nomads, yaks, Tibetan antelope and lots of wildlife. Several rails are under construction or planed such as Sichuan-Tibet Rail, Yunnan-Tibet Rail, Xinjiang-Tibet Railway, and Gansu-Tibet Railway.
