Tibet Travel Transporation FAQ'S page

Tibet Transporation FAQ'S page provide you with the useful information about flights and train to/from Lhasa,Tibet.

Q: Can you help buy the domestic flight ticket in China?

A: Yes, we can help buy all domestic flight tickets within China.

Q: Can you buy e-ticket for me?

A: Yes. Right now, many air companies in China are selling e-ticket to travelers. It is very convenient to use, and as travel agent we can hold and book your air tickets without showing the Tibet Travel permits beforehand and provide the Tibet travel permits reference to the airline agent later. We would love to help you buy the e-tickets from the ticket office but you do not need to hold the paper ticket, all you have to do is to print out your flight booking PNR or reference codes as well as flight schedule, and take your valid passport and the Tibet Travel permits to get the boarding pass without any issue. 

Q: Is it easy to purchase a train ticket to Tibet now?

A: The popularity of train travel to Tibet has resulted in the huge demand for Tibet train tickets among visitors. It's very difficult for individual travelers to get a ticket on their own. Reliable travel agencies can NOT guarantee successful booking. We recommend you fly into Tibet and return by a train.

Q: Do I need a health report when I travel by train to Tibet?

A: All travelers are required to complete a health report on the train to Tibet.

Q: What vehicle do you use in Tibet?

A: We offer tour vans (9-14 seats), mini tour bus or bigger tour bus (from 19 to 40 seats) and also 4WD tour vehicles, while the 4WD is only for the deluxe and private tours, since it costs not efficiently and generally more expensive as it can be only good for 2-4 travelers plus one tour guide and one driver, so it is more expensive if your own tour group is just with 2 or 3 persons. On the other hand, the road condition in Tibet is better and better, mini tour vans and tour buses are more and more popular even for Everest Base Camp trip and Mt.Kailash trip, it becomes more comfortable and cheaper due to more space and more tourists sharing the cost.

We provide you with the useful information about tour transportation in Tibet such as flights and train to/from Lhasa,Tibet.
