November,30 2016 BY Derek Wong 0 COMMENTS

The train from Lhasa to Chengdu made its debut in July, 2006. The Lhasa to Chengdu train(Z324) departs every other day at 18:30 from Lhasa Train Station, and arrives at Chengdu Railway Station at 14:36 on the third day after more than 44 hours covering a distance of 3360 kilometers. Its operational speed is also 120 km/h, 100 km/h over sections laid on permafrost. It costs around RMB1101 for a first-class sleeper berth, about RMB709 for a second-class sleeper berth and half that for a hard seat.

Like each Tibet train, the train to Chengdu from Lhasa is also especially built for the high altitude environment and equipped with advanced facilities, such as air-conditioning, supercharging system, oxygen supply, altitude display, etc. The train is also tightly sealed so as to firstly keep the inside air pressure normal and secondly prevent passengers from littering. Besides, all the carriages are installed with double-paned windows and ultraviolet filters to protect passengers from ultraviolet radiation.

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.
