It’s what Indian mountaineer Anshu Jamsenpa did at the weekend when she unfurled her country’s flag at 8848 metes above sea level on May 21, just days after doing the same thing.

Shehad reached the peak three days earlier, before heading back down to do the arduous trek all over again.

Her dual climb was completed in 118 hours and 15 minutes. It marks the fastestdouble effort by a woman.

 

 

 

 

Conditions on Everest are notoriously unpredictable and harsh. An Australian climber died at the weekend while trying to reach the summit, after suffering suspectedaltitude sickness.

The death toll during the current season stands at five.

Jamsenpa’s record-breaking effort began with a blessing from the Dalai Lama in April, before she knocked over a month of fitness training before setting off.

The 37-year-old mother of two reached the top on May 16 and then again on Sunday.It marks her fifth successful climb to Mount Everest’s summit.

Her latest endeavour smashes her previous record of climbing to the top twice in 10 days, which she achieved in 2011.

 

Everest Summitter Association head Lhakpa Rangdu Sherpa confirmed Jamsenpa’s record-setting climb from Everest Base Camp on Sunday.

Five other climbers have managed to reach the top twice in two seasons — all of them Sherpas.

After Jamsenpa’s ascents have been certified by the ministry of tourism in Nepal, the world record will be official.

Like a railway to heaven, sky train to Tibet is the highest train in the world.

Qinghai -Tibet railway goes from Xining to Lhasa and looks like a huge dragon spanning the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. The total length is 1956 kilometers. A section of 960 kilometers of railway is more than 4,000 meters above sea level, and 550 kilometers is permafrost. The highest elevation of the railway across Tanggula Mountains is 5072 meters, and it is a plateau railway with world’s highest elevation, longest distance on permafrost, and world-class difficulty.

The railway opened in 2006 and has attracted millions of tourists. It is a wonderful experience and it has become the preferred means of transportation to travel to Tibet. The number of tourists who take train to Lhasa equals to that of taking a flight.

The train from Xining to Lhasa takes 24 hours. You can also take the train from Shanghai, Beijing, Xi’an, Chengu, Guangzhou and other major cities – it takes around 48 hours.

What to See

Most scenic spots center around the last section of the Qinghai -Tibet Railway, namely from Kunlun Mountains to Damxung prairie. The train will pass Kunlun Mountains, Tuotuohe – the source of Yangtze River, Tanggula Mountains (at an elevation of more than 5000 meters), Amdo prairie, Cuona lake on Nagqu prairie, and Damxung prairie. Finally, you will arrive in Lhasa at dusk.

Check out some gorgeous sights you are going to see on the way:

How to go

The biggest advantage of taking a train to Tibet is the price: it is usually one third of the price of the flight.

Train cost from Shanghai one way (2016):

Hard sleeper – 793.5 rmb

Soft sleeper – 1262.5 rmb

The nearest city to take Qinghai-Tibet train is Xining with only 24 hours and budget costs. You can take a flight to Xining and start your sky train journey from there:

Train cost from Xining to Lhasa one way (2016):

Hard sleeper – 288.5 rmb

Soft sleeper – 450.5 rmb

Please make sure to buy your train tickets months in advance, they get sold out very fast!

Many wonder: when is the best time to visit Tibet to plan their lifetime journey to the holly land better?

Depending on your purpose of visiting, every single month is the best time to visit Tibet!

Spring (April–May)

Tibet

The weather becomes warm during spring and the ice melts. It is the best time to enjoy already warm weather and still not crowded Tibet before the high summer season.

Summer (June–August)

tibet

The weather is warm and most comfortable for traveling in Tibet during the summer. Although there is a rainy season from mid July to late August, the rain usually doesn’t last longer than one hour and doesn’t make your journey uncomfortable.

If you are afraid of the high altitude sickness, the summer is the best season for you as the air contains more oxygen than in other seasons.

This is the busiest season of the year and it is very difficult to get a train to Lhasa.

Autumn (September–October)

1
The rainy season is over and the weather is clear and cool. It is the best time to take pictures of the mountain peaks as there is less cloud. It is also the best season for trekking and hiking in Tibet.

Autumn is still a very busy season in Tibet, almost like summer.

Winter (November–March)

tibet-4

Temperature in Lhasa is mild, around 10 degrees by day, but if you travel to the Everest base camp, it might drop as low as to – 30, so you need to be well prepared. There are far fewer tourists than in summer or autumn. Some roads might be closed due to the heavy snow. It is also the most economic: the prices are 20% lower. 

Summary: 

– The best weather to Visit Tibet – Summer & Autumn (April to October)

–  The lowest cost season to visit Tibet – Winter

– Th best trekking time in Tibet – Autumn

What do you know about Tibet?

By Katie S.

Where is Tibet (I’m gonna be totally honest, I don’t know)?

 

So it’s between Nepal (didn’t know that) and China (did know that). The Tibetan people practice Tibetan Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam (quite a melting pot for beliefs).

There are 6 million people living in Tibet and their economy mainly consists of agriculture and animal husbandry (don’t’ worry I had to look that last one up too, for your convenience, Animal Husbandry: the science of breeding and caring of farm animals. You learn something new everyday). Tibet covers about 2.5 million square kilometers and is about 4,000 meters above sea level.

So one of the main highlights of Tibet (probubly the biggest, not just cause it’s the largest mountain in the world) is Mount Everest. It stands tall at 29,029 feet (8,848 meters) and is about 60 million years old (it’s about as old as dinasours, it might be a dinisour, that’s a terrifing thought).

About 200 people have died climing Everest, but that didn’t deter the about 4000 people who have climbed it. Not to mention that it costs 25,000 US dollars per person (ouch, that hurt) to purchase a permit to climb this old beast (ya I’m not paying to almost die, not today, or any day probably).

There’s even what they call a “Death Zone”, which is located at 26,000 feet (you’ll reach it if you walk past the last camp, which is why, I’m assuming, it’s called the last camp, cause it’s the last camp you’ll ever see if you pass it!). But I guess it’s worth it if you can see 3 different contires from just the summit: India, Nepal, and Tibet (you can literally see over Nepal into India).

 


Hello sheep.

This is Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. And being that, it’s Tibets’ center of politics, culture, and economy. The city covers about 11,583 square miles and is home to 400,000 people. Because of this city’s beauty, rich cuture, and history, it’s becoming a more and more popular tourist destination (sooner you get there, the better).

One of the most visited buildings in Lhasa is (drum roll please)

Jokhang Temple


(bet cha can’t say that 5 times fast). This temple is included in the World Heritage list by UNESCO and is part of the Potala Palace


(another fun one to say, Potala Potala Potala). It is about 6 acres large and it is considered the most important temple in all of Lhasa because of its key importance to Buddhist pilgrims and it houses the throne of the Dalai Lama (the building itself looks like a throne, look at that thing).

 

Next stop: The Barkhor


The Barkhor is also located in Lhasa (it’s conviently located right around the temple! Literally, it’s a giant square. Just for you). The Barkhor is home to marketsgallor, selling silk, trinkets, and jewelry. And many restaurants, local and international, are located in this areaas well (shopping and eating, yes! Someone gets it).

 

Gyantse is 13,000 feet above sea level (wooh, getting up there, literally) and is considered a mid-sized city with a population of about 20,000 people.

Shigatse. The second largest city in Tibet, about 70,000 miles in size.The main attraction (like it’s some kind of amusement park, ha) is the Tashilhunpo Monastery(definitely not an amusement park, I repeat, not an amusement park).

This is the traditional seat of the Panchen Lamas (highest ranking lama after the Dalai Lama).

 

Tibet is also home to the highest monastery in the world, the Rongbuk Monastery (so not only do they have Everest, they also have the highest monastery in the world, kinda makes sense). This monastery is known for being the tallest and (go figure) having amazing views of mount Everest.
