Golmud to Lhasa

Last updated: April,21 2017

Golmud is a city that lies along the Qinghai-Tibet Railway, a 1956 km railroad that starts from Xining and ends at Lhasa. The Golmud-Lhasa railway section is 1,142 km.

There is no train to Lhasa starting from Golmud therefore making it difficult to catch the train from the Golmud Railway station. However there are many trains heading to Lhasa that make a stop at Golmud originating from other cities. The sleeper classes are always almost booked solid, however you have a good chance of getting hard seat tickets and standing room tickets if anthing. If you can only obtain standing room tickets, also known as non-reserve, you may sit in the dining cart for the entire trip to Lhasa.

Please Note: Since it is difficult to buy train tickets for Tibet in peak season, it is better to book Tibet train tickets in advance.

The Golmud to Lhasa railway stretch is the most scenic out of any other stretch. Expect to see wild landscapes, yak, antelopes, and Tibetan trekkers out through the window.
