It’s also one of the busiest airports in the world.

As the most hassle-free way, you can also take a taxi directly to the airport, which takes about 36 minutes from the middle ring while the cost would be relatively higher, usually about $200 - $300.

3. How to avoid high altitude sickness when taking the flight to Lhasa?

Due to its high elevation in Lhasa, tourists may suffer from altitude sickness of different degrees, like headache, chest congestion, polypnea, nausea, emesis, insomnia etc. Usually, the symptoms as mentioned above will gradually decrease after 1 to 2 days’ acclimation. So take it easy.

For better adaption to the high altitude, it is suggested to have a good rest and avoid shower during the first two days in Lhasa. Never get too excited and rush to visit attractions shortly after your arrival in Lhasa. Drink more water and avoid to take showers. Bringing with some medicines, like acetazolamide (Diamox), to fight altitude sickness will also be helpful. Gradually, you will be less likely to suffer from acute altitude sickness.

4. When is the best time to fly from Hong Kong to Lhasa?

For Lhasa tour, it is a good choice to travel to this holy city from May to October. During this time, the city of Lhasa is provided with warm sunshine and high oxygen content, suitable for sightseeing. In this period, the climate becomes mild and humid and is the best season for travel in Tibet.

But if you want to buy your Hong Kong to Lhasa flight at a low price, the best choice is to avoid the high tourist season. For Tibet tours, the most popular time is from April to October. While during Chinese National Day Holiday (October 1st - October 7th), there are a lot of Chinese tourists rush to Tibet. Therefore, try to plan your Tibet trip in low seasons, like winter, if you want to book some discount flights.

5. What are the travel documents required for flying to Lhasa from Hong Kong?

For international tourists who stopover in Hong Kong or plan to enter Tibet from Hong Kong, you will need to hand your passport, Chinese Visa and Tibet Travel Permit for the check. The passport and Chinese Visa are the primary documents required for traveling to China from abroad.
