Best time to visit Tibet

The best time to travel Mount Everest Tibet tour is from  April to October. Traveling at the beginning of this season allows you to enjoy the snow outside of Lhasa without too much disruption. Towards the end, autumn foliage colors the landscapes, and harvest festivals are held in October.

Tibet rain seasons are starting from late May or June to September or October, with most of it falling in July and August. If we choose the best months to visit here they are  April and May, or September and October – either side of the peak of the summer rains and the winter snow.

Winter in Tibet is very cold but it has its own charms, with snowy scenes and lower prices proving a draw for many. But in December, January, and February, the mountains and trekking routes are inaccessible, and many roads may be blocked as well.

You can still visit Lhasa in winter. Days will be dry and bright but cold – with a wind chill making it feel even chillier. Nights plummet below freezing from November to February.
