Xian to Lhasa Train Schedule & Online Ticket Booking

Last Update: July 21, 2017

There is no direct train from Xian to Lhasa up till the present moment. Then how could we get to Lhasa from Xian? Luckily, two trains to Lhasa from other major large cities have a stop at Xian Railway Station namely, Guangzhou-Lhasa Train (Z264) and Shanghai-Lhasa Train (Z164). Thus, you could go to Tibet from Xian by trains running initially from Guangzhou and Shanghai.

Taking train to Lhasa from Xian is one of the most favorite routes for visitors to Tibet. There are seven trains heading towards Tibet. Daily train for Lhasa only leaves from Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Trains to Tibet from other major large cities like Chengdu, Chongqing, Lanzhou and Xining would depart every other day.

Since Xian is not the initial train station to Lhasa and not all trains would stop over here, the limited quota for Xian-Lhasa train tickets makes ticket-booking become more difficult, especially in peak season (May to October). You may take a train or fly to Xining or Lanzhou, and then enter Tibet by Xining-Lhasa train (Z6801) or Lanzhou-Lhasa train (Z917) as an alternative.
