Explore the Wonders of Western China on the Tibetan Gesang Flower Train

Travelers seeking an unforgettable journey through the captivating landscapes of western China have a new option with the launch of the ‘Tibetan Gesang Flower · Snowy Pride’ tourist train. Announced by Great Tibet Tour, this special train will operate once a week from April 20th to October 12th, 2024, connecting the ancient Silk Road with the breathtaking Qinghai-Tibet Railway.

The train’s route promises an extraordinary adventure, departing from Xining and making stops at Golmud, Dunhuang, and the final destination, Lhasa. Along the way, passengers will witness the diverse and awe-inspiring scenery of the region, including the Qinghai Lake, Chaka Salt Lake, Da Qaidam Emerald Lake, and the iconic Silk Road stations. From the vast Gobi Desert to snow-capped mountains, salt lakes, deserts, and grasslands, this journey offers a unique opportunity to experience the natural beauty and rich cultural heritage of western China.

One of the highlights of this train journey is the chance to disembark at the unmanned tourist stations of Tanggula and Cona Lake, located at some of the world’s highest altitudes. Tanggula Station, at an elevation of 5068 meters, holds the distinction of being the highest railway station globally, while Cona Lake Station, at 4594 meters, sits alongside the world’s highest freshwater lake. These rare opportunities to explore these remote and breathtaking locations will undoubtedly create lasting memories for every passenger.

The train’s schedule has been meticulously planned to provide passengers with unforgettable experiences at every turn. As the train crosses the Shashangou Grand Bridge in the Dunhuang-Gulmud section, travelers will witness the magnificent desert scenery bathed in the warm glow of the setting sun. During the 94-kilometer 180° super long turn from Aksay to Subei Station, the altitude will increase by 1000 meters, offering a firsthand experience of one of the most remarkable engineering feats of Chinese railways.

Upon entering the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, passengers will be treated to the sight of the sunrise over the source of the Yangtze River and the snow plains of the Hoh Xil, with the possibility of spotting Tibetan antelopes running alongside the train. The train itself is equipped with all soft sleeper compartments, oxygen production equipment, and accompanied by travel stewards and doctors, ensuring a comfortable and safe journey.

The announcement of this unique train journey has generated widespread excitement, with many eagerly anticipating the opportunity to embark on this mystical adventure and immerse themselves in the stunning scenery and rich cultural heritage of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Unlike regular Tibet train tickets, bookings for this special train cannot be made through the standard 12306 platform. Instead, Great Tibet Tour, a recommended agency by Lonely Planet and one of the largest private international travel agencies licensed by the Tibet Tourism Bureau, is offering this exclusive experience.
