Hey guys!
I have a question. How much aproximetely cost the train ticket from Beijin to Lhasa? I read on many forums that it's around 70 dolars, but travel agency gave us twice bigger price. I am wondering what is the truth :D
Would be greateful for some tips!

Cheers,

marysia

12306.cn is the official website of China Railway (or what it's called). If you know some Chinese and have an online bank account, you can book the tickets by yourself.

Good luck!
