Nagchu Railway Station - Tibet Train Station

December,01 2016 BY Derek Wong 0 COMMENTS

Taking Tibet train to the roof of the world has become a fashion among travelers. Most tourists would get off at Lhasa railway station, so Nagchu Railway Station is not so famous at Lhasa train station. Nagchu Railway Station is an important Tibet train station for transferring and replenishment along Qinghai-Tibet Railway, the world's highest railway. Nearly all the trains to Tibet would make a stop at this train station.

Nagchu Railway Station is located in Mendi Village, about 2 kilometers away from Nagqu County. Close to the Qinghai-Tibet Highway, it works as a transfer station and supply depot along Qinghai-Tibet Railway. 

The Nagqu Railway Station covers an area of 7412 square meters and its comprehensive building occupies an area of 2540 square meters. It enjoys an altitude of 4547 meters and is about 322 kilometers away from Lhasa and 820 kilometers away from Golmud.

Nagqu is located at the center of Northern Tibet and famous for the Nagchu Horse Racing Festival which is usually held on August 1st each year. The horse racing festival is always considered as an important traditional festival of Tibet in companion of another traditional Tibetan festival, Shoton Festival. Some tourists would take a train from Lhasa to Nagchu to enjoy the exciting horse racing festival and then take train back to Lhasa. It is a both cost-saving and time-saving way.

The world famous Heavenly Lake is also close to the Nagchu Railway Station. If you are interested in a Tibet trek to Namtso, the budget way is taking train to Nagchu and then starting your trek.
