According to the previous weather statistics, the climate will be cold. You are suggested to bring enough winter clothes. But it is still a good time to tour around. Have a nice journey!

It is recommended to take a train to Zhangye in the morning and you will reach the destination in around 7.5h. You will have enough time to find a hotel and have a big meal. In addition, direct flight from Dunhuang to Zhangye is also available, and it takes only 70min.

Are you worried about overweighted? if your luggage is overweighted, just show your connecting ticket, no extra money charged. Or if you want to take more from lanzhou to beijing. The limitation is as follows:
For hand baggage, no more than 5 kg
For checked luggage:
First Class (F) 40 kilograms (88 pounds) Two pieces
Business Class (C) 30 kilograms (66 pounds) One piece
Economy Class (Y) 20 kilograms (44 pounds) One piece

I need 2 hard sleeper train tickets for the 23rd of February. We would like to take train 1043 at 21:25 from Xi'an to Zhangye, Gansu. If that train isn't available 1067 at 22:52 would be my second choice. Third choice would be for train 1085 at 00:36, but this one would be for the 24th of Feb. Can you please let me know if tickets are available. Thank you very much for your help.
