Introduction to Lhasa Climate

With deep blue sky, sparkling rivers, mystery, religion, architecture, and the simple and unsophisticated Tibetan people, Lhasa is definitely many travelers" dream destination. The air here is thin and the temperature is comparatively low. The temperature differences between day and night during a single day can be large.

Winter and spring, this is what people called ‘dry season’ or ‘windy season’, is from late October to the next May in the region. During this period of time, there is usually little rain and much wind, and snow only occurs in the mountainous areas. It still feels warm in the day thanks to the abundant sunshine and strong radiation no matter how cold it is at night.

During the wet season from June to early October, the weather becomes warm and moist. The temperature can reach up to 27 - 29 C (81 - 84 F) in the afternoon in June when you may just wear shorts, but the temperature will drop to 0 - 5 C (32 - 41 F) at night. Rain gear is not necessary in this season, since it almost rains at night but turns clear in the morning. Thus, Lhasa is also a good summer resort.

What to wear:
Despite the amount of sunlight in Tibet, the daily difference in temperature is still big. It is chilly at night even if the day here is sunny. Most hotels in Tibet have no central heating. Bringing winter clothes is therefore a wise choice. Generally a T-shirt, overcoat and jeans are also indispensable. Sunhats, sunglasses and suntan lotion are necessities. Also, if you intend to watch the sunrise at Mt. Everest or Namtso Lake, then warm clothes are a must. To avoid being hurt burnt by the strong ultraviolet lights in this high-altitude area, it is suggested  that you take sunscreens and sunglasses. What"s more, for it is usually windy and dry here, a protective lipstick is also necessary.
