Hi, timo1111,
December in Tibet would be extremely cold, you need full preparations for the trip. You'd better take a sleeping bag with you to keep warm during the way.
I donot now wheather you would travel to Tibet by train or by air.
You say you would start your trip in Shanghai, you can buy the tickets from Shanghai to Lasha in Chiina Eastern Airways.
and for the train tickets, there are no direct train from Shanghai to Xizang, you may have to change trains halfway.
Anyhow, wish you have a nice trip. hope what i said would help you.

I thought it was quite difficult to obtain a visa into Tibet if you are not with a tour group?

Have you found a way to get one? If so, please enlighten me! I deleted Tibet from my backpacking trip because I didnt want to get into any sort of trouble as I also would be travelling alone.

Cheers
