7-Day Lhasa Highlights via Xining by Train

Tibet Train Rid

If you only have a very short time to visit Tibet, you could take this tour rather than the high-risk flight to Lhasa. (To tell the truth, if you think you can only travel to Tibet once in your life, it’s worth saving up the time and money to make a longer trip of at least two weeks.)

Check out How to Travel to Lhasa for a collection of our best posts about Lhasa, how to get there, and what to do when you’re there.
