Thank you for your answers!

I heard that it is not possible to travel by bus from Chengdu to Lhasa, that it is only possible to get a permit to enter Tibet by plane. Is this true?

No, there are no trains from Lhasa to Beijing. All the trains arriving in Lhasa have to be dismantled and transported by truck (Express trains by aeroplan) back to Beijing.

Hi MAMAN,
I found the schedule of Tibet train from http://www.travelchinaguide.com/cityguides/tibet/train-to-tibet/

It will take you about 24 hours from Chengdu to Lhasa.

Good luck
May
