Beijing, one of the ancient cities and the capital of China, has been the heart and soul of Chinese politics and society throughout its long history. Take this tour and explore Beijing’s ancient glory (the Great Wall of China, the Ming Tombs). Leaving Beijing you embark on a train journey to Lhasa, aboard the world’s highest railway, the Qinghai-Tibet railway. As the train trundles along the high Tibetan plateau, picturesque scenes of Tibetan countryside whiz by. Owing to Tibet’s high altitude, the train has been equipped with oxygen-supplying equipments. Oxygen masks are available for those who are prone to altitude sickness.
