It is better to go to Tibet in winter by train or by plane?
A lot of people say go to Tibet by train, is a quicker way to adapt to the elevation of Tibet, actually this still debatable. Each individual has its difference physical experience, some people catching a flight to Tibet for the first time, after arrival got no reaction at all. Instead, some enter Tibet by train, may feel particularly tired, drowsiness, loss of appetite to eat because the long journey on the train, and all this fatigue will greatly increase the possibility of high altitude sickness. Therefore, this is completely depends on the individual physical quality. Considering the cost, I personally recommend flying into Tibet in winter. First, it is cheaper in winter, and secondly, it saves the travel time, so that you may have more time to rest and adapt to the altitude. Whether entering Tibet by train or by flight, each has its advantages and disadvantages, it is all your choice.
