When is the best time to travel to Tibet?
Our climate charts will give you a guide as to the weather conditions and therefore the best time of year to travel to Tibet.
Late spring-early summer and autumn are considered the best time to travel to Tibet, particularly if you would like to go on a trek. The days are usually dry and bright and the nights are likely to be cool. Remember that at altitude the temperatures will be lower. This is the best time to view Everest Base Camp from the Tibetan side.
In the summer months, Tibet experiences monsoon rains. This can cause travel problems, and in the winter, temperatures can be extremely cold.
We always plan one of our Mount Kailash departures to coincide with the Saga Dawa festival in May.
