I. Recommended Departure Cities for Taking a Passenger Flight to Tibet (Lhasa):
         Beijing ranks among the most recommended departure cities as it is the capital city of China and possesses the most abundant domestic and international flight routes from over 100 nations. In other words, since there is NO direct international flight heading to Beijing, Beijing undoubtedly became the optimal transfer city no matter what sort of transport international tourists are adopting—a second flight or a train to Tibet. Some foreign travelers pay a visit to other resorts in a variety of Chinese cities before or after they advance towards Tibet. Every day, 1 flight is available from Beijing to Lhasa, and vice versa.
*Relevant tour of Beijing: 7-day Beijing, Chonqging and Yangtze River Boat Cruise Through Three Gorges (Warm Remark: This itinerary can be divided into Beijing tour section and Yangtze River Cruise tour section, and our Tibet travel consultant can customize for you.)
Chengdu, another city full of Tibetan residents and cultures, is perpetually regarded as the window city through which visitors enter Tibet—some streets and roads in Wuhou District in downtown of Chengdu are Tibetan areas. Plus the relatively close location to Lhasa and mild weather, Chengdu exerts the superiority that incomputable Tibetan people originating from Ganzi (Kham) Region in west Sichuan Province have established various businesses since 3 decades ago. The second largest Tibetan population in Chengdu comes from Tibet, mainly from Lhasa City. Moreover, the west Tibetan area of Sichuan, also known as Kham or Ganzi Region, is adjacent to Tibet Autonomous Region. So it is easy to deduce that, and as a matter of fact, the two regions have the same source of Tibetan culture though they speak Tibetan language in different accents. At least 3 flights are arranged a day from Chengdu to Lhasa, and vice versa.
*Relevant tour of Chengdu: 2 Days’ Chengdu Local Tour, Chengdu Panda Base, Wuhou Temple, Wenshu Monastery and Sichuan Opera Face Changing
         *Relevant tour around Chengdu: 7 Days’ Emei Mountain and Leshan Giant Buddha Tour, Chengdu Panda Tour, Sanxingdui Museum and Huanglongxi Ancient Town Tour
Xi’an is a historic city abundant in tourist attractions like Terra-Cotta Warriors, the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, Huaqing Hot Spring, Shanxi Historical Museum etc. The reason why some travelers transfer to another flight (Taking a train from Xi’an to Lhasa is not recommended) is that they can come over the resorts described above to increase their tour pleasure.
Shangri-La (Diqing) includes well known tourist attractions such as Potatso National Park, Songzanlin Monastery and so on. Many international travelers also pay a visit to significant resorts near Shangri-La in Yunnan Province once they decide to leave for Shangri-La. So Shangri-La (Diqing)-to-Lhasa Flight is another prevailing route among visitors.
Kathmandu in Nepal is another country with unifications of the state and the church. In other words, Tibetan Buddhism is the dominant religion in Nepal. The places worth a visit in and around Kathmandu include Nagarkot, Pokhara and Chitwan. You can view 16-day Panorama Tour of Tibet and Nepal: Lhasa-Nyching-Shigatse-Kathmandu-Nagarkot-Chitwan-Pokhara by clicking the purple anchor texts if it fits into your interest.
         Apart from the flight routes above, you can also make options at your best convenience by departing respectively from Guangzhou, Chongqing, Xining, Chamdo or Kunming.

II. The following suggests a rough timetable of flights to and from Tibet. However, the flight schedule is NOT as fixed as train timetable in China, so some delays even departure time adjustments based on awful weather are possible.
