Frankly speaking, there are three main ways for tourists to travel to the Roof of the world. Traveling to Tibet by air, traveling to Tibet by train, and traveling to Tibet by overland.
Flying to Tibet from the Mainlands of China
Among the numerous ways to Tibet, flying to Tibet is the most convenient and fastest way. If you have a tight schedule, you’d better take a flight to Tibet. But taking flights to Tibet still has many disadvantages. For example, you will miss lots of scenic spots such as Qinghai Lake, Qarhan Salt Lake, Kunlun Mountains, Hohxil Nature Reserve, Qinghai Tibet Plateau, Tanggula Mountains, Tsonag Lake, etc. You may suffer from the high altitude sickness owing to the short journey.
Taking flights to Tibet from China is very easy. There are tens of flights flying from the mainlands of China to Lhasa every day. You can book the fight tickets in main Chinese cities such as Beijing, Chengdu, Shanghai, Kunming, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Xining, and Xian. Among these gateways in China, Chengdu possesses the maximum flights.
Taking a Train to Tibet from the Mainlands of China
Compared with taking a flight to Tibet, taking a train to Tibet costs much time but less money. Taking a train to Tibet is the main choice for most travelers because the scenery along the railway is really attractive. You can see the yaks and sheep running on the boundless grassland, crystal-like lakes, snow-capped mountains, splendid Tibetan monasteries, etc. You can book the train ticket in some major cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Chongqing, Xi’an, Xining, and Lanzhou. Among these gateways in China, Xining possesses the maximum trains to Lhasa.
Taking an Overland Tibet Tour from China.
The third is to get to Tibet from China by overland. It is an adventurous way for tourists who are interested in risks. It takes travelers at least one week to get to Tibet by overland. Although the duration time is long, the scenery is very charming and attractive. There are four highways connecting China with Tibet, Sichuan-Tibet Highway, Yunnan-Tibet Highway, Qinghai-Tibet Highway, and Xinjiang-Tibet Highway.
