Plane

The fastest way to get to Tibet. There are numerous flights every day from all major cities in China. There is one international flight to Lhasa from Kathmandu, Nepal. You will land in one of the highest airports on Earth. During the flight, if weather permits, you can see the Himalayas- highest mountain range in the world.

Afternoon and evening flights tend to be delayed more often than morning flights due to weather conditions.
