cultured

The train is equipped with 2 Oxygen sources, released throughout the cabins when reaching Golmund and heading into Tibet and personal Oxygen Canisters in case you feel light headed. There's three categorys, one full of tibetans and young chinese people going to get job and the others for chinese tourists. Is a nice train but is a shame because this is the main enter to the han inmigration and the destroy for tibet.

natural

If you reach Lhasa by plane directly maybe you'll feel some headacke, unsleep or dizzy. Don't worry,is the alttitude!! Rest for one day, walk slow, drink lot of watter and put some garlic on the food. If you vomite or split blood just ask for a doctor in the lobby of your hotel. They will help you. This is not always but just in case is better you know it.

lhasa buses

recommendation by susanna-alaitz

Lhasa Long-distance Bus Station is located at the junction of Minzu Road and Jinzhuzhong Road.
You can get a bus to Gyantse, shigatse, Tsetang, amdo, chengdu, kathmandu...but check the buses before you take the decition for a long distance and check the permits you need otherwise you'll be in problems with the police. You need your TTP and Psp.
