Tibet Train Schedule

The railway of Qinghai to Tibet, which is the longest and highest railway built atop a plateau, is China’s first railroad to Tibet. It is not only a landmark achievement in Chinese engineering and design, but a modern wonder in the world railway history. During the construction of the railway, three challenges are encountered - permafrost, lack of oxygen and a fragile ecosystem. To avoid the threat of the terrible thunder near the Tanggula Pass with an altitude of 5,072 meters, the first-class equipments were installed and all the difficulties were overcome in the end. This miraculous sky railway, which runs across the ’roof of the world’, is not only making Tibet step into a flourishing future in open stance, but also bringing new developing space to Tibet and richer life to Tibetans. If you want to travel in Tibet, the special train tour will broaden your eye with unique landscape and leave you a memorable experience. Following is the detailed train schedule for your reference.
