Tibet Flights Information

You can fly to Lhasa and also Nyingchi but flying in from a much lower altitude city puts you at higher risk of altitude sickness because of the quick transition.  If you are in Sichuan or nearby (and aren’t satisfied visiting the many ethnically Tibetan areas to the east of the Tibetan Autonomous Region) flying from Chengdu is the easiest option.

A flight from Chengdu to Lhasa plus all the necessary paperwork will cost around 1550 yuan, and can be arranged through most large hostels or travel agents.

The Lhasa Gonggar Airport is about 50 km from Lhasa.  It takes 1 hour to the center of Lhasa.  There are flights from the mainland China – Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Kunming, Qamdo, Shanghai, Xi’an, Xining, and Zhongdian (Shangri-La).  International flights are also available to Kathmandu, Nepal and Hong Kong.

There are a lot of flights in and out of Lhasa.  Below is the timetable for reference, as for the accurate flights and price at specific time, please contact us to confirm.
