It is possible to travel to Tibet from Beijing by train or air for international tourists.
By train. Z12(the only train to Tibet from Beijing) departs once a day. It leaves from Beijing West Railway Station at 20:10. And it will arrive at Lhasa Railway Station at 13:27, on the third day of your train trip. The whole train journey is about 3,753 kilometers long and takes 40 hours and 53 minutes, so you will stay on the train for two nights.
By air. There are usually two flights a day from Beijing to Lhasa, all the flights depart from Beijing before 15:00. It takes about 4 hours and 30 minutes for a direct flight and about 6 hours and 40 minutes for a stop-over flight to reach the destination. We highly recommend you take the morning flight to Tibet, so you can have more time to get used to the altitude and climate of Lhasa.
There are two flights from Beijing to Lhasa with full price ticket of 3,300 yuan per flight. A round-trip ticket from Beijing to Lhasa costs 6,600 yuan.
To save money, you can consider taking the flight from Beijing to Xi’ning and then take the night train from Xi’ning to Lhasa. A direct flight from Beijing to Lhasa takes about 4 hours and 30 minutes, a direct flight from Beijing to Xi’ning takes about 2 hours and 35 minutes, and a train from Xi’ning to Lhasa takes about 21 hours and 30 minutes.
There are two flights from Beijing to Lhasa: TV9816 (14:50-19:25) and CA4112 (08:30-15:35). Ticket prices are around 3,300 yuan. CA4112 is a stop-over flight, which will stay in Chengdu for 1 hour and 10 minutes. The whole journey will take 7 hours and 5 minutes. TV9816 is a direct flight which will take 4 hours and 35 minutes to get to Tibet.
The Gongga Airport in Lhasa is one of the highest airports in the world, with an altitude of about 3569.5 meters. It is about 85 kilometers from downtown Lhasa.

This is my first trip to Tibet, so I have high expectation to my Tibet trip. First, our guide, Jack, arranged for visit to temples and monasteries. Also, they're able to adjust our itinerary quickly. I'm glad I had a great Tibet trip.
We are thankful so much again to our agency Asia Odyssey Travel and my dear Amy for the wonderful arrangement and make my trip to Mt Kailash trip possible, really apperiated! We did Kora around Mt.Kailash for 3 days in August as I had been looking forward this trip for quite a long time, even the second day of Kora are hardest to all of us because part of the roads are covered by snowing with long-distance walking and quite high altitude too, so we spent a lot of physical strength on this but it’s totally worth because the views along the way are very incredible, I think we may not have much chance or time to go there again.
Anyway, I really miss Tibet also my dear, hope we will come and see you one day again, many thanks again for all of your help!!!
Overall, I am very satisfied with the service. Our travel consultant Monica is very responsive and helpful. She responded to our questions promptly and willing to accommodate my request. Tibet tour is very nice and memorable. We got well along with other travel members and became very good friends. The only thing I do mind is the condition of the public toilets, hard to describe, you should see them by yourself.
From the airport pickup time to the train station drop of, we enjoyed a five star service. I was welcome in a Tibetan way with Hada and Tibetan greetings, and our guide was careful with my itinerary and flight schedule, very thoughtful.
Thanks for Tibet odyssey. Me and my friend had an unforgettable and amazing 9 days tour in Tibet in June 2019. During those 9days, our tour guide Ms Gao hong were really responsible, helpful and reliable, he arranged all of the schedule and help us to go through every single day smoothly, safely and comfortable, even when we in the highest place where is altitude 5200m, we didn’t feel any afraid and fearful.
