This includes train into lhasa from xining. Does not include food and accomodation, nor does it include your transport out of tibet.

Please message me if you are interested in joining us. Also considering a few days in Xining before hand. Itinerary can be modified...was considering adding Nam tso but thought three lakes may be too much? Scenery looks quite similar to Manasarovsar. Looking for a nice mix of scenery, towns and architecture.

Cheers.
