Trip Report Beijing To Tibet, Mt. Everest And Nepal All In 10 Days

Jump to last reply

After spending a day and a half in Beijing, I make way to the West Beijing Train Station. With my ticket and passport checked, I purchase an advertised Noodle Bowl special (RMB$15.50) and head towards Track No.2. There I join a queue of hundreds where again my ticket is checked. Descending a set of stairs I am staring down at my home for the next 44 hours.

Making my way to the 5th Train Car, I meet two of my travel companions for the next 10 days, Kathy and Bill from Montana. After brief introductions, we do some jostling around to store our luggage and get somewhat comfortable.

We are sharing a 4 person soft sleeper cabin along with a Chinese national and I end up with an upper berth.

At 8pm, T-27 leaves Track No.2 at the West Beijing Train Station and our 10 day adventure begins.
