Hello, Ms. Joey

To my own experience, you'd better travel by air from one city to another. The train tickets are hardly to be puchased, especially in the travel high season like September. For your information, the soft sleeper tain charge is about ¥336.00 per ticket on the train K651/K654 13:11/14:01 ( the next day) from Guilin to Chengdu. The soft sleeper train charge is ¥921.00 per ticket on the train T22/T23 20:59/15:54( the next day) from Chengdu to Lhasa.

Regarding the Tibet Travel Permit, you can only get it if you book an organized tour from an travel agent.
