Every day, the diligent Tibet trains unTibet load about 2000 tourists to the holy city Lhasa from different cities around China. What makes so many travelers flock into Tibet by train?
The first also the biggest reason is to experience the world engineering wonder which has created 9 extraordinary world records (the highest railway – 5072m, highest railway station - 5072m, the longest plateau railway -1976kkm, longest rail bridge – 11.7km, longest plateau tunnel in permafrost – 1686m …) and check out how the engineers overcame the biggest three technical challenges during the construction Qinghai Tibet Railway - widespread frozen earth, high altitude sickness and eco-environment protection. The second reason is to enjoy the breathtaking plateau landscape along the railway – huge salt lakes Qinghai and Qarhan, vast and mysterious Hoh Xil Depopulated Zone, the Elf of Qinghai Tibet Plateau – Tibetan Antelope, Dominating Tanggula Mountains, Blue Diamond - Tsonag Lake, plains dotted with yaks and herder's tents… The third reason is the much lower cost, compared with air transfer, especially during peak seasons.
