Travelers around the world are planning their Tibet tours now. To help ensure they arrive well prepared, Tibet Ctrip Travel Service-TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com) discusses the weather they can expect to find upon arrival.

Now that the 2015 Tibet travel season is coming into full swing, it’s time for travelers to start taking notes of Tibet’s weather. To the surprise of many, there’s no one size fits all answer for what they’ll find upon arrival: Tibet is a huge country and weather can vary drastically across travel destinations. To help travelers prepare for their 2015 tours, Tibet Ctrip Travel Service-TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com) discusses the details for some of Tibet’s most popular regions.

  • Lhasa and Central Tibet: Travelers will find the weather in the Lhasa area to be relatively hospitable year around. Daytime temperatures will be hot during July and August but may cool off significantly at night.
  • Mt. Everest: Travelers around the world are crossing their fingers for the reopening of the Everest area; it’s been closed since the Nepal Earthquake this spring. Should it reopen, September and October are the best times to visit; frequently clear skies maximize the chance of catching a glimpse of Everest’s face.
  • Mt. Kailash: July, September, and October typically bring favorable weather but travelers still need to be prepared for sudden drops in temperature. If trekking, clothes that can be layered are the way to go.
  • Eastern Tibet: For the remainder of the 2015 Tibet tour season, it’s best to schedule visits for autumn. Monsoon rains increase the risk of landslides during July and August.

Tibet’s varied geography can cause climactic conditions to vary drastically from destination to destination. However, travel groups can find suitable weather nearly year around so long as they are willing to be a bit flexible. Lhasa will be welcoming for travelers for the remainder of the season while travelers are best off waiting a couple months for areas such as Everest and Eastern Tibet. With the 2015 travel season upon us, now is the time to start planning a tour!
