However, it’s not so easy for foreign travelers to obtain tickets especially during the Tibet travel peak season. And the Lhasa train ticket quota from Xian to Lhasa is very limited. More over there are always so many Chinese people who want to go to Tibet by train. So if you do wish a train tour to Tibet, please confirm your travel plan at least 70 days before train leaves. Because only in this way, can the agency begin to reserve the train tickets earlier according to the ticketing schedule.
