Noted as the cradle land of Uyghur culture, Kashgar is one of the most famous cities in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.

Tibet Tour from Kashgar by Air

The round-trip flight between Ngari and Kashgar has been opened on April 29th, 2012. Ngari Plateau is widely noted as the Roof of the Roof of the World for its high altitude. Though Kashgar is less than 2000 kilometers away from Ngari and the Xinjiang-Tibet Highway (also noted as State Highway G219) has been opened to traffic, the transportation between Kashgar and Ngari is not so convenient due to the severe natural environment along this highway. The transportation on Xinjiang-Tibet Highway is frequently influenced by the snowstorm, debris flow, snow slide, land slide and some other natural disasters. Tourists willing to visit Ngari Prefecture during their Tibet tour could only take a vehicle or flight from Lhasa.

The opening of the Kashgar-Ngari flight provides great convenience for tourists willing to visit the historical sites and natural sites on Ngari Plateau. This flight is available on every Saturday. It will save a lot of time for tourists especially interested in Ngari but don't have too much time in Tibet. As a professional Tibet tour operator, Tibet Tour will arrange our guide and driver to be waiting for you at Ngari Gunsa Airport upon your arrival.

Tourists planning a Tibet tour from Kashgar could also enter into Tibet along the Xinjiang-Tibet Highway which is noted as the highest highway above the sea level. The road condition of Xinjiang-Tibet Highway has been greatly improved after the reconstruction in 2013. It is said that the best season to drive on Xinjiang-Tibet Highway is between May and June in consideration of the severe climate condition on Ngari Plateau. The period between May and June is the transit period between the wind season and the rainy season.

Tourists planning to drive to Lhasa from Kashgar via the Xinjiang-Tibet Highway should make a good preparation for the limited accommodation throughout the journey till you arrive in Shigatse. There is no real star standard hotel or good conditioned restaurant, and visitors could only choose to rest in the guesthouse. The restaurants along this highway only provide simple Tibetan style or Sichuan style food. Therefore, tourists are strongly suggested to prepare some solid food with high calorie in case the food provided in the local restaurants can't meet your appetite.

In addition, it is also necessary to make preparation for the possible high altitude sickness for tourists willing to enter into Tibet from Kashgar via the Xinjiang-Tibet Highway. The sudden altitude change increase is of great challenge for tourists start this trip from Kashgar with much lower altitude. The experienced tourists would always take some measures for the precaution of the high altitude sickness, such as take some rhodiola rosea in advance.
