  • Are things sold on the train expensive?
    The things sold on the train are more expensive. For example, a bottled water normally sells for 2 yuan will be about 5 yuan a bottle. Passengers are advised to bring some bottled water and snacks to the train.
  • It is still possible to have an altitude sickness by train to Tibet?
    The altitude sickness is caused by the pressure difference between the exterior and the interior body, which causes the unease of the head, stomach, and intestines of a person. Therefore, if the train only supplement oxygen without increasing the air pressure when it is at an altitude of 5,000 meters from Golmud, most tourists will have headaches and upset stomachs. Especially when the train crosses over the Tanggula Mountain, there will be obvious symptoms. In addition, the train ride is long and the conditions on the train are limited, so it is easy for people to feel tired during the ride. So please stay alert to the altitude sickness while you are on the train.
