When to visit Tibet

CLIMATE: April to October is the best time.November is starting to get cold.December and January can be freezing,with heavy snow blocking high passes.Few individuals visit at this time,which means it's hard to find people to share Landcruiser rentals (see By Landcruiser and guide).February is Tibetan new Year and though cold it can be lively,if you can get in.April can be windy;

there's a rainy season around July and August,when flooding can cut off roads and wash out bridges.Because Tibet is so large,climate conditions change from east to west and with the elevation.
