Does the train to Tibet reduce the risk of high altitude sickness?

No. The train is pressurized, and oxygen is available in the cabins if needed. Therefore it is like traveling at a lower altitude. You will only begin to feel the affect of altitude after you arrive in Lhasa. So we advice all clients to stay in Lhasa city for 2 to 3 days.
