Update: Sep. 26th, 2012

Herdsmen and Runnung Yaks on Tibet Plateau

Tibet trains on Qinghai-Tibet Railway adopted some special design in the consideration of the high plateau environment. Some special facilities are also equipped on the train so as to make tourists get better adaptation to the high altitude. Tibet Tour would like to make a brief introduction about the facilities on the train for tourists planning a Tibet budget tour by train.

Tibet Budget Tour by Train – Cabins on Tibet Train

The Tibet train is composed of 4 hard seat cabins, 2 soft sleeper cabins, 8 hard sleeper cabins, and 1 dinning cabin. The total fixed number of the hard seat cabins is 392 and the total fixed number of the soft sleeper cabins is 64 while the total number of the fixed number of the hard sleeper cabins is 480. Hence, the total number of the passengers on a Tibet train is 936. Tourists planning a Tibet budget tour by train could book the train ticket according to your need. Tourists are strongly recommended to book a soft or hard sleeper since it always take dozens of hours to get to Lhasa from any of the gateway cities, such as Guangzhou and Beijing. Tourists who just don't want to miss the amazing natural landscape along Qinghai-Tibet Railway could fly to XiAn or Xining first and then get on the train to Lhasa.

The No.7 cabin on Tibet train always acts as the dinning cabin. The number of the total seats in the cabin is 44. It provides tourists with some simple sets. Tourists making a Tibet budget tour by train could also order some simple cuisines, but the price might be relatively higher since the material on the train is quite limited. Besides, the taste of the food provided in the dinning cabin might be just so-so. Tourists are strongly recommended to prepare some solid food in advance, such as chocolate, instant noodles and some fresh fruits.

Tibet Budget Tour by Train – Special Facilities on Tibet Train

Special oxygen supply facilities are equipped on Tibet train to provide tourists enough oxygen. It integrated the diffuse-type oxygen supply and distributed oxygen uptake which greatly improved the oxygen content in the cabin and guaranteed the oxygen uptake of the passengers. The waste recovery, waste water and garbage collection devices are installed in the closed cabins. These devices meet the demand of special environmental protection on Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.

The enough oxygen content in the cabin would protect passengers from the anoxia. Tourists making a Tibet budget tour by train could also take the oxygen through the independent connector. Hence, tourists really don't need to be over worried about the possible anoxic symptoms since there would be sufficient oxygen content in the cabin. The oxygen supply would be available between Golmud and Lhasa.
