Chengdu-Lhasa Trains

Written by FabioUpdated May. 9, 2023

There is one pair of normal-speed trains operating between Chengdu and Lhasa and they depart every two days. When taking the train from Chengdu to Lhasa or vice versa, you will pass awesome scenery and landscapes during the journey.

So far, there is no high-speed train route to Lhasa. A high-speed railway to Tibet is under construction.

Train Travel Tips

As there is only one train from Chengdu to Lhasa, it may not fit in with your travel schedule to Tibet. In this case, you can transfer from Lanzhou or Xining where more trains travel to Lhasa every day.

Due to Tibet's political situation, foreign tourists need Tibet Travel Permits to travel to Tibet. You need to find a China-based travel agency, like us, to help you do this as foreign tourists are not allowed to apply for the permits themselves.
