Travelers can expect to be able to travel to Tibet on a special express train by 2007.
The special train will be equipped with an oxygen providing system, making it easier for passengers to endure the thinner-air in the so-called "roof of the world".
It will also carry doctors on board to ensure the safety of any travelers affected by the high altitude.
Passengers will also be able to enjoy various entertainment activities during the journey, including Tibetan dancing and Karaoke.
Tibet is among the top tourist destinations for Chinese citizens. In the past few years, the number of travelers to Tibet has grown by 10 percent annually.
