As a train trip to Tibet is really a long journey, travelers cannot keep their regular life and will get tired easily, especially for seniors. Therefore, seniors are highly recommended to take sleeper berth. In addition, the life on the Tibet train is not as convenient as in a hotel or at their own house. Therefore, it is best to prepare enough daily necessities, like napkins, towels, toothbrush, cup for drinking hot water, etc.
