Tibet Tour Time Tips

What is the best time for travelers to visit Tibet? This common question is often asked by travelers. Based on the weather condition in Tibet, April to October is the best time to go to Tibet. This period is also the peak tourist season. During this time, the temperature is higher than in winter, but you won’t feel hot because of the high altitude. With the cloudless sky, you can see the peak of some grand mountains such as Mt Everest, Mt Kailash, etc. Although July and August are the rainy seasons, it always rains at night. When you get up in the morning, you will be attracted by the stunning sunrise. Apart from the attractive scenery, summer is also the season for Tibetan traditional festivals. Some famous Tibetan festivals such as the Ganden Thangka Showing, the Nagqu Horse Race Festival, Shoton Festival, Karma Dunbar, etc. will be held in summer. Therefore, if you travel to Tibet during this period, not only can you have a grand visual feast, but also you can know more about Tibetan tradition cultures.

Winter is too cold for tourists to visit some remote areas in Tibet. While there is an ideal place where the temperature is higher than northern Chinese cities - that is Lhasa, the capital city of Tibet. Having a Tibet winter tour is the best way to reduce your expense for food, accommodation, vehicles, and entrance fares. But you should avoid getting to Tibet during the Tibetan New Year. You are not allowed to enter Tibet at that time. To be specific is from mid-February to the whole of March every year.



Tibet Tour Transportation Tips

Among the numerous Tibet tour tips, I think tips about transportation is very important. At present, there are two main ways for travelers to get to Tibet. One way is to take a train to Tibet, and the other way is to take a flight to Tibet. Taking a train to Tibet is the best way to adapt to the high altitude sickness because of the long journey. You’d better book the soft sleeper berth or the hard sleeper berth ticket, or you will feel tired.

Compared with taking a train to Tibet, taking a flight to Tibet is the fastest way. If you have a tight schedule, you can choose this way. You need to book the tickets in advance because of the limited tickets, especially during the peak tourist season.
