Transportation

There are four airports in Tibet: Gonggar Airport of Lhasa; Bangda Airport of Chamdo; Milin Airport†of Nyingchi; and Gunsa Airport of Ngari. Gonggar Airport is located in Gonggar County, about 65 kilometers (40.3 miles) south of Lhasa city. To get to Lhasa, Chengdu, Beijing, Xian, Chongqing and Xining are all starting points. Visitors usually start from Chengdu in Sichuan, because Chengdu has about 20 flights per week to Gonggar Airport in Lhasa. There is also now a daily flight from Beijing to Lhasa.

The flights from Chongqing have†been re-adjusted to more than 20 flights every week. It is also possible to go from Xining and Xiían. With about 18 flights every week in Xi’an, taking the plane is more convenient for visitors. Also, several flights from Guangzhou in Guangdong Province and the direct flight from Lanzhou in Gansu Province are available now.†

Going to Lhasa by train is another choice. The Qinghai-Tibet Railway is the longest plateau railway and also the highest in the world. Trains on the railway are well equipped. Signs inside the carriage are written in both Tibetan and Chinese Han language. Oxygen respirators are available too.

At present, there are seven railway lines to Lhasa from Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Lanzhou, Xining, Chongqing and Chengdu. They pass through many big cities and special sightseeing lines are opened via Qinghai Lake, Kunlun Mountains, Kekexili, the Three Rivers Resource Area, Northern Tibetan Grassland, Potala Palace and other famous sights in the plateau.
It is easy to hail a taxi on the city streets. For longer journeys, visitors will need to negotiate a fare with the driver beforehand.
