The “Fuxing” bullet trains, which run on the new railroad, will cut the travel time from Lhasa to Nyingchi significantly, the report said.

By car, the journey takes five hours. With the new bullet train, it’ll take three and a half.

It’ll also reduce the travel time from Shannan to Nyingchi from six hours to around two hours, Xinhua reported.
