Newly arrived tourists in Lhasa Railway Station 

For most of Tibet inbound tourists, you will spend 2 nights in the train. The Qinghai-Tibet Train is considered as a 3-star facility train in China, but it is not a hotel, so there are few things we highly recommed you to prepare for the stunning train ride. Packing list for 2-day train journey:


Comfortable Pajamas
Light slipper: Slippers can make your feet more comfortable during the train ride.


Smart phone
Battery recharger: You can find battery recharge socket inside train cabin.
Laptop or Ipad (optional)
Headphones: Listen to nice music while enjoying stunning window view outside the train; respect roommates

Poker (optional)
