Hong kong to tibet flight

The quickest and easiest way to get to Lhasa from Hong Kong is by flight. While there are no direct Hongkong to Tibet flight, there are connecting flights you can take from Chengdu that can get you to Tibet in the shortest possible time. The flight from Hong Kong to Chengdu is just 2 hours 40 minutes, and there are five flights a day. The connecting flights from Chengdu to Lhasa are never a problem, as there are eleven flights a day, so there is very little time to wait between connections. At only 2 hours 25 minutes, this short hop can have you in Lhasa Gonggar International Airport less than six hours after leaving Hong Kong, and is definitely the fastest way to make the trip.

The downfall of traveling by flight to Lhasa is the altitude. Chengdu and Hong Kong are at relatively low elevations (both under 500 meters), and there is no chance of being able to acclimatize to a higher elevations before landing in Lhasa, at 3,656 meters above sea level. For travelers flying to Lhasa, there is more chance of getting altitude sickness, so the appropriate rest and acclimatization period should be met once you reach the Tibetan capital.
