Generally speaking, there are two means for foreign travelers entering Tibet. One is to fly into China and take a flight or train to Lhasa and the other is to fly to Kathmandu, Nepal and then get to Lhasa by air or by car.

Going to Tibet via mainland China, you can fly to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Chongqing, Xi'an and other Chinese cities, and then transfer to Lhasa. Chengdu and Beijing are both popular departure cities to Lhasa, with regular direct flights every day. Or you can choose a cheaper stopover flight. If you want to enjoy the magnificent scenery along Qinghai-Tibet Railway, you can choose to take a train to Tibet. There are 7 gateway cities that provide trains from mainland China to Tibet, including Guangzhou, Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Chongqing, Lanzhou and Xining.
If you plan to enter Tibet from Nepal, you need to take a flight to Kathmandu. Once you arrive in Kathmandu, you can choose different ways to get to Tibet. You can fly to Lhasa directly because Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu is the only international airport with direct flights to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet.
