About Tibet

Climate and Temperature

Climate
Tibet, due to its unique geographical characteristics, is cold in winter, cool in summer and generally dry, receiving only 450 millimeters ( 18 inches) of rain or snow. Sunlight is extremely intense. The thin air neither blocks nor holds heat, so sunshine feels warm, shadows are chilly, and temperatures can vary greatly within a day, exceeding 29
c.gif (70 bytes)( 84degree.gif (54 bytes)F) in summer, and plunging below 4c.gif (70 bytes) ( 40degree.gif (54 bytes)F) the same night. Lhasa's night-time lows in winter are around -9c.gif (70 bytes)( 16degree.gif (54 bytes)F). Th higher you go the colder it gets, and the winds in winter are ferocious. Rainfall in southern Tibet occurs intermittently between May and September, bringing moisture to barley fields and greenery to the valleys. The most pleasant months for tourism are from April to October.
