Train to/from Tibet, what time has the best scenery?

Jump to last reply

Hello,
I am thinking of taking the train either to or from Lhasa sometime in September. From the discussions here, it doesn't sound like it makes any difference in terms of adjusting to the altitude. Here are the trains/times I am considering. I want to be sure to pass through the most scenic areas during daylight.
