  • Outstanding service from Tibet Vista!

    I had an excellent experience with Tibet Vista (did the 4D/3N tour), starting with my initial contact with Liam/Jiang. The Chinese Embassy in Kenya has exceptionally stringent requirements that are not common with other embassies, necessitating multiple revisions of the Letter of Invitation. Throughout this process, Liam remained patient and accommodating...More reviews

Beijing Tibet Tour FAQs and Travel Advice

  • What travel documents are required for a Beijing Tibet tour?

    The first step to start your Beijing Tibet tour is to obtain the necessary travel documents. To enter China, you need to get a Chinese Visa. In most cases, you can obtain your Chinese Visa in your home country or a third country, with your original passport having at least six months of remaining validity.

    For Tibet, you will need to obtain the Tibet Travel Permit before entering the plateau. The Tibet Travel Permit can only be applied for through an authorized travel agency on behalf of international tourists. Your Chinese Visa and valid passport will be required for the application. The best option is to book your Beijing Tibet tour with us, and we can help you get your Tibet Travel Permit through simple steps, as well as any additional documents needed for touring Tibet.

  • Why choose Beijing to start a China Tibet tour?

    First, it is much more convenient to get to Beijing from all around the world. Multiple direct flights arrive in Beijing every day, landing at Beijing Capital International Airport and the newly opened Beijing Daxing International Airport. Whether you are coming from America, Europe, or Australia, you can find an easy way to fly to Beijing.

    Secondly, Beijing offers both direct flights and trains to Tibet, surpassing many other cities in China. The non-stop flight from Beijing to Tibet departs three times daily and only takes about 4 to 5 hours. The train from Beijing to Lhasa leaves once a day and takes about 40 hours to cross the vast land of China to reach the Tibetan Plateau. Tourists can also choose to break the journey along the way in Xi’an or Xining, among other cities.

    Last but not least, Beijing is a destination you should not miss if you want to visit China and Tibet together. From ancient imperial palaces to modern architectural marvels, there are many places worth sightseeing, including the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, the Summer Palace, and the Temple of Heaven, to name a few.

  • When is the best time to visit Beijing and Tibet?

    The best time to visit Beijing and Tibet together is spring and autumn. Strictly speaking, Beijing is friendly to visit throughout the year, despite of the cold weather in deep winter. While Tibet, on the other hand, have a better weather condition in spring and autumn. Considering its high altitude, it is recommended to visit Tibet from April to June and September to November, when the weather is temperate and stable.

  • Should I travel to Tibet from Beijing by flight or train?

    The flight to Tibet from Beijing departs three times a day in the morning, and it takes about 4.5 hours to get to Lhasa. If you take the flight, you can enjoy a fast and quick transfer to Tibet, while bear a relative expensive transportation cost. Since the flight price always fluctuates a lot, from high season to low season, it is recommended to book your flight in advance.

    The train from Beijing to Lhasa will take about 40 hours on the way. From late evening to the early morning of the third day, you will experience quite a long time on board the train. But as the train passes Xining to enter the route of Qinghai-Tibet Railway, you will start to enjoy impressive nature landscape that can not be found on any other places of the planet. Besides, Tibet train also offer a relatively affordable price for budget travelers.

    As a third choice taking a balanced position, you can also combine the Tibet train and flight to get to Tibet from Beijing. It is recommended to first fly to Xining from Beijing, and then take the train from Xining to Lhasa. Xining as the starting point of Qinghai-Tibet rail line, offer the most frequent trains to Tibet. So, you will not miss the legendary Tibet train journey but avoid long-time transfer on the way.

  • How many days are needed for a Beijing Tibet tour?

    The duration of a Beijing Tibet tour depends on your itinerary and preferences. Generally, it will take at least one week to get a first impression of both places.

    In Beijing, you will spend 2-3 days visiting the city’s landmarks. Traveling from Beijing to Tibet by train will take about 40 hours if you choose the direct route. A flight, on the other hand, will take roughly half a day to reach the plateau.

    If you choose to transfer along the way via Xi’an or Xining, you may need an additional 1 to 2 days to explore these cities. There are some sights worthy of your time, such as the Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an and Ta’er Monastery in Xining.

    Once in Tibet, you will need two days in Lhasa for sightseeing and altitude acclimatization. If you wish to travel to the Everest Base Camp, you should arrange an additional 4 days. Traveling from Lhasa to Kathmandu will require another 4 to 5 days.

    Keep in mind that the further you travel from Lhasa, the more time you will need for your trip. If you plan to visit additional places during your Tibet tour from Beijing, be sure to allocate extra time. If you're unsure how to organize your itinerary, feel free to contact us for personalized suggestions.
