For most visitors to Tibet, they will spend two nights on the train. The Qinghai-Tibet railway is considered a three-star train facility in China, but it is not a hotel, so we strongly recommend that you prepare for this amazing train journey.

Medicine here is referred with car sickness pills, and many people get carsick when they take the train, and although the train starts to provide oxygen from the Golmud, the vast majority of tourists will still have the high altitude sickness symptom, the medicine is used for this moment.
