Tibet Train Tours provide you with train tickets booking and tour in Tibet. The Qinghai-Tibet train line is an engineering marvel. Topping out at 5072m, it is the world’s highest railway.
All trains cross the Tibetan plateau during daylight, guaranteeing you great views. From Golmud the train climbs through desert into the jagged caramel-coloured mountains of Nanshankou, passing what feels like a stone’s throw from the impressive glaciers beside Jade Pearl Peak. Other highlights include the nearby tunnel through the 4776m Kunlun Pass, abd Tsonak Lake, 9.5hrs from Golmud near Amdo, claimed to be the highest freshwater lake in the world at 4608m. Keep your eyes peeled throughout the journey for antelope, fox and wild asses, plus the occasional momad. The train crosses into Tibet over the 5072m Tangula Pass, the line’s highest point.
