Beijing-Lhasa Train Altitude

Tangula Pass's altitude is  5068 meters

Compared with arriving Lhasa by air, train travel is safer in terms of acclimatization. However, it is inevitable to talk about the altitude sickness when introducing the Qinghai-Tibet railway, for most of time it runs above 3500 meters. The average altitude of Beijing and Lhasa is 50 meters and 3650 meters respectively, while the highest place of the Qinghai-Tibet railway --Tangula Pass stands at 5068 meters. Tremendous altitude problem would happen if the train was not properly and considerately designed.

The Beijing to Lhasa train has two oxygen supply systems; one is the individual oxygen supply system that works anytime when you need it and it is just under your seat or above your sleeper, very easy to get access to; the other is the central oxygen enrichment system that starts to work after the train arrives at stop of Germud city which is 2815 meters above sea level, that is to say, after the train passing the stop of Germud city, all the train cars will be oxygen-enriched. And individual supply is only used when extreme cases take place, yet this seldom happens.
