Train Timetable

Trains that originate in Beijing, Xining, or Chengdu are relatively easy to arrange, whilst trains originating in other cities can be a nightmare, particularly in the busy season. Ticket touts also mean that prices can, and do vary. Trains out of Lhasa are extremely easy to organize. We HIGHLY recommend taking at least one leg of your journey by train, as the “sky train” as it is known is one of the most breathtaking train journeys on the planet, with oxygen pumped through your cabin and a very leisurely 36 hours to Xi’an, and 48 to Beijing being more than bearable in a hard sleeper. Generally we recommend flying in and taking the train out for these very reasons, although we are happy to arrange a trip originating from anywhere.
