About ticket price:

The ticket prices above are the net price. In reality, as traveling in Tibet is so popular that the actual ticket demand far exceeds the supply, in-bound and out-bound tourists have to pay more than the net price to buy tickets. The actual price is subject to the market fluctuation. In some cases, the actual price could be double than the net price. Despite the uncertainty and difficulty in purchasing train tickets, Travel Tibet China(TTC) would manage to book tickets at a reasonable price ( usually 20 percent lower than the market price) and promise to offer free service for it. If tourists only want to buy train tickets via TTC without intending to travel to Tibet, TTC will have to charge a small amount of service fee.

How to Book Tibet Train Ticket? Book online with travel agency like Travel Tibet China(TTC) (Recommended)

You are recommended to book tickets early, especially when your departure date coincides with a Chinese festival or holiday, such as the National Holiday and Chinese Spring Festival.

To individual tourists, the best solution is to contact a reliable travel agency like Tibet Vista and book the train ticket at least one month before departure. Just send us your departure date and copy of the passport and we will obtain the tickets for you as soon as the reservation opens.

Buying tickets at train stations is difficult for international travelers because the staff there don’t understand English and not all information displayed is in English and Chinese.
