Important Notice

  • A: Sometime why visitors book the flight or train to or out of Tibet, the internet booking platform might refuse the booking from visitors, so we would suggest clients to book the flight or train from us as the booking platforms do not refuse the booking from a travel agent.
  • B: The overland travel route from Sichuan/Qinghai/Yunnan provinces to Tibet is forbidden to foreign visitors, only Chinese visitors are allowed to travel by car from these provinces to Tibet.
  • C: The soft sleeper train to Tibet is very limited tickets and on hot demand, usually it is hard to buy from internet especially in peak season, so travel agencies mainly buy the train tickets from their long-term cooperated ticket scalpers by paying additional booking fee.
