Flights from Xining to Lhasa

If Tibet is a holy place in people's spirits, Shangri-La is a paradise in people's dreams. Then, Qinghai is a pure land of people, God, and nature at the source. On the streets of Xining, the ancient city of Plateau, the high-rise buildings and the winding roads, there is no wild feeling of the towns in the central and western regions. Only when we saw the figure of ethnic minorities wearing dazzling national costumes and jewels, let us have a feeling of being "on the periphery". Leave Xining, come to Lhasa, continue to walk this snowy plateau.

It is located on the south bank of the magnificent Yarlung Zangbo River at an altitude of 3,600 meters. It is one of the highest civil airports in the world. The Gongga Airport covers a relatively small area. There are relatively few flights to and from the country. Unlike many airports in the mainland there are several terminals and exits. There is only one entrance and one exit to the Gongga Airport Terminal, so you can rest assured that you will not lose yourself. As long as you arrive at Lhasa Gongga Airport, you must come out of that only exit.

 

The staff of Gongga Airport stopped the airport bus about five meters away from the exit of the terminal building. Walk out of the airport terminal, then you can see a small pavilion was set up about 3 meters from the wall on the left hand side, the ticket for the airport shuttle bus was sold here. The fare was RMB30. If you purchased the ticket, you can directly use the ticket to get on the airport shuttle bus. Here, the airport shuttle bus is checked in when you get on the bus. After checking the ticket before the boarding, it will not check the ticket again. The starting point of the Gongga Airport airport shuttle bus is the exit of the Gongga Airport Terminal. The end point is the Civil Aviation Authority at the foot of the east of Potala Palace.
