Peak ( Sep - Oct )

The rainy season is over and autumn colors begin to flood the landscape. Days are long, sunny and crisp. October sees maximum tourism, so plan in advance.

Shoulder ( Apr - Aug )

April is when Tibet slowly comes out of its winter, heralding the start of tourism. Expect clear skies and great views of wintery landscapes, with snow-capped mountains and thawing lakes. Temperatures continue to rise through May. June to August is the wet season, which may mean cloudy days and impaired views on mountain treks, but the countryside is lush and green, still attracting tourists.

Low ( Nov - Mar )

Winter sets in and the landscape freezes over. Hard-core trekkers will still use this time to avail of rock-bottom rates. Many mountain passes may be closed. January is the windiest months. The Tibetan New Year is celebrated in February, which is a 15-day celebration, but in the past the Chinese Government has often refused visas during this period. The thaw starts only early-April onwards.
