Here I’d like to talk about something about the ways to Tibet from Japan. It is very easy for the Japanese to travel to Tibet benefiting from multiple flights. Travelers just need to finish the two simple steps and they can explore this mysterious land in the world. Firstly, you can get to China or Nepal from Japan, then, you can get to Tibet from China or Nepal easily. In China, flights and trains in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, etc are available for you. In Kathmandu, flights and vehicles are the main ways to Tibet.
How to get to Tibet from China
Flying to China from Japan just takes you three to four hours. After you fly to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, or Chengdu from Tokyo’s Narita Airport, you can choose to fly to Lhasa or take a train to Lhasa. I advise you to spend several days to visit some famous cities if you have enough time. Not only these cities are surrounded by numerous attractions, but also they provide flights and trains to get to Tibet. After visiting, you can get to Tibet directly. Flying is the fastest way compared with trains. But take a train to Tibet is the best way to enjoy the beautiful scenery. What’s more, it is very helpful for travelers to adapt to the plateau environment.
In Beijing, flights and trains are available for Japanese. It takes travelers about 5 hours to get to Lhasa Gonggar International Airport by air. The price of the economy ticket is about US$ 500. If you take a train to Tibet, you will spend at least 40 hours on the way. The overland distance from Beijing to Lhasa is about 3,757 kilometers. If you plan a Tibet summer tour, you must book the train ticket in advance. Or the train ticket will be sold out.
In Shanghai, the Japanese can also take the flight and train. It takes at least 8 hours to get to Lhasa by air. The price of the economy ticket is about US$ 455. If you take a train to Tibet, you will spend at least 47 hours on the way.
In Guangzhou, flying to Lhasa takes at least six hours. The price of the economy ticket is about US$ 455. It takes travelers 53 hours by train.
In Chengdu, flying to Lhasa takes at least 2 hours. The price of the economy ticket is about US$ 233. It takes travelers 36 hours by train.
How to get to Tibet from Nepal
Flying to Tibet from Kathmandu - the capital city of Nepal is the best way. It only takes about half and one hour. An average economy ticket costs from around US$ 400. On a sunny day, you can see the shining peak of Mt Everest.
Getting to Tibet from Nepal via Gyirong Port is also a wonderful way. Tourists can explore the mysterious Himalaya Ranges along the way. Normally, most travelers who are fond of thrilling will choose to hike or trek to Tibet from Nepal. If you are strong and healthy enough, this way is OK for you.
