Tholing Monastery Pictures

Pristine Tholing Monastery is seated in a piece of highland on the south bank of Xiangquan River, among clay mounds of the river valley.

Located in the northwest corner of Zanda County, Tholing Temple is a noted monastery in Ngari, built by the prince of Guge Kingdom (10th to 17th Century) in early 11th Century. Tholing is Tibetan meaning 'flying in the sky and never falling'.

Generally speaking, the train between the two cities is available all year around. But you can not predict if there is any particular circumstances.

Greetings. I would like to take train from Chengdu to Lhasa. Is the train departs every day? Another question: is there any express bus that directly reach there from Chengdu. Do you think in this case, the ticket costs much higher than the train's? Your answers are well appreciated.

The train sets off every two days from Chengdu. It is not so easy to buy the tickets. You may need to ask an agency for help.
BTW, I don't believe there is express bus between these two.

Hi Frank!!!!
i had call to them, but also they told me i need to do a group, cause they cant give the permit visa for one person.

I find some agencies, but they want to sell a package, about U$800,00, and dont incluid the tickets from Shanghai ( where i live).

What you think about this price for package to city tour, and hotel ( 3 stars), and permit visa...
thanks a lot for your atenttion

How many days and what places do the package offer? I find some info in this web for you to make a comparison:
You can also ask the tour agent to make a private tour of your self, as simple and including the permit.Can also make a inquiry if they can just handle a permit for you.
There must be travel agency that will do that for you without selling the package. Just need to pay for the processing of the permit. Good luck ~
