I watched online that some people take 3 trains: from Beijing to Lanzhou (bullet train), then from Lanzhou to Xining.. then the Trans-Tibetan (probably the one form Beijing to Lhasa) from Xining to Lhasa. Is this a viable option? Which do you recommend?

ETripChina

Tibet railway starts from Golmud, the next station of Xining. So all the trains to Lhasa, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu meet at Lanzhou and Xining, and continue the trip for about 24 hours onto Lhasa. From 2018, high-speed railway reaches Lanzhou and Xining, then many people choose to take bullet train or flight there to make the train ride short and more comfortable. On the other hand, tickets from Beijing are also very difficult to book due to rare availability. So we are only able to guarantee the tickets for groups booked tour with us. If you start the tour from Beijing, we still recommend you take bullet train from Beijing to Xining, then Xining to Lhasa.

  • Q: Would it be possible for you to list the PayPal link in AUD instead as both my bank and PayPal charge a large fee to pay in USD?
    A: For the payment link, PayPal only allows to give currency of USD, Euro, GBP and CAD. And actually, Euro, GBP and CAD will also change into USD before we draw it. There will be an exchange rate between USD and AUD, but you do not have to pay the PayPal charge, that will lay on us.
  • Q: hi, can I pay in Australian dollars and how much would that be thanks. Kind regards,
