Most Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I book the same compartment for me and my companions?
    Normally you cannot choose a compartment when booking a train ticket, especially in the peak season. When we book the tickets for you, we will try our best to meet your preferences, but please be aware it is not guaranteed.
  • How can foreign tourists book train tickets themselves?
    There are four ways to book a train ticket:

    Mainland Chinese with a citizen ID card can register in the official website of the Ministry of Railways (www.12306.cn) to buy a ticket online. So if you have a Chinese friend from mainland China, you can ask your friend to book it for you.

    Foreigners can purchase train tickets on Ticket-booking websites such as Ctrip, Fliggy and Qunar. The tickets can be hard to get during the peak season for travel to Tibet, so you are suggested to book ahead of time.

    Foreigners can also buy a ticket directly from the train station with a valid passport. But since the train ticket is only available 30 days or less ahead, it can be hard for you to get one during the peak season.

    Foreigners can also book the train ticket through a travel agency. Our agency provides train ticket booking service. Please contact us if you need help.

  • Can I ask for an upper or lower berth when booking my train ticket?
    The agency normally books the train ticket for you through the website of the Ministry of Railways, which does not enable designation of the berth. You can only designate the type of the sleepers (a hard sleeper or a soft one).
  • What is the cost of the Soft Sleeper for the train from Beijing to Lhasa?
    The cost for the upper berth of the soft sleeper from Beijing to Lhasa costs RMB1144 while the lower berth costs about RMB1186. There will be 4 passengers sharing one cabin in the soft sleeper. It is suggested to choose soft sleeper (1st class of the train from Beijing to Lhasa) instead of hard sleeper due to the long duration of the train journey.

  • After the train ticket is successfully booked, how can I get the ticket?

    If you purchase the tickets on the website of 12306 or other ticket-booking websites, you can pick up their tickets by the order number and their passport from the train station.
    If you book your tickets through our agency, our staff will deliver the ticket to the city where you are going to take the train.

  • Is there a discount for children’s train tickets?
    Children who are below 1.2 meters can take the train for free with adults. Children whose height is between 1.2 meters to 1.5 meters need to buy train tickets at a half of the price of the adults’ ones for the hard seats. Children with a child ticket will be charged the full price of the soft sleeper when using the sleeper alone.
  • If I book a train ticket through tibet odyssey tours, will the ticket be guaranteed?
    All our customers who book their train tickets through our agency, their tickets are guaranteed.
  • How far in advance should I book a train ticket?
    According to the current policy, the train ticket can be booked 30 days in advance. In case the tickets are sold out, you are recommended to book it 30 days in advance whether you purchase it yourself or through our agency.
  • Can I take high speed train from Beijing to Lhasa?
    There is no high speed train from Beijing to Lhasa. Actually, the high speed train to Lhasa from either one city is not available since now. Let's look forward to the future development on the Lhasa High Speed Train.
