Sacred. Rugged. Timeless.

tibet weather

Because of Tibet’s elevation, it is best visited during the spring and fall months.

As the ‘Rooftop of the World’, there is a relatively short window to visit the Himalayan Kingdom. With an average elevation of 14,000’, the winter months can be bitterly cold while the much warmer summer months usher in the monsoon which can make overland travel difficult to all but the Lhasa Valley.

March | April | May

Considered one of the best times of year to visit. Cooler weather in early spring gives way to warm, pleasant days and cool, crisp nights.

June | July | August

Summer ushers in the monsoon as rainfall gradually increases from late June through late August making overland travel unpredictable.

September | October | November

Considered one of the best times of the year to visit. Gradually less and less rainfall gives way to some of the best weather of the year with crystal blue skies and beautiful mountain vistas.

December | January | February

Generally, too cold to visit except for the most intrepid travelers who should limit their travelers to the Lhasa Valley with its comfortable, centrally-heated hotels.
