The weather in Tibet varies based on the season and altitude. The Himalayas also have a considerable impact on the weather in Tibet, as they prevent monsoon winds from reaching the region, resulting in a dry environment. Tibet generally has cold and dry weather all year, with little precipitation and little moisture in the air.
There are a few variations, though:
In the spring (March to May) Tibet’s spring weather is dry and windy, with occasional snowfall at higher elevations. The temperature swings between 5°C to 15°C, making it ideal for hiking and sightseeing.
The winter in Tibet is from Month of December to February. The weather in Tibet during the winter is cold and dry, with temperatures ranging from -10°C to -20°C. Heavy snowfall occurs throughout the region, making transport and trekking difficult in some regions. Winter, on the other hand, is a great time to visit Tibet for cultural activities and festivals.
