Chongqing to Lhasa Train, Train Travel Information and Ticket Service

December,21 2016 BY Kham Sang 0 COMMENTS

Chongqing - Lhasa Train(Z223) is a vital overland gateway to Tibet, equally as important as Chengdu-Lhasa Train in southwest of China. The entire railway stretches as long as 3654km and it takes around 42:13h to reach Lhasa from Chongqing. If tourists prefer to enjoy Yangtze River cruise trip first and later move from Chongqing to Tibet, this railway route is recommended to you. (The return train is Z224.)

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, Tibet Vista 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 Tibet Vista without intending to travel to Tibet, Tibet Vista will have to charge a small amount of service fee.
