Is there any advantage to go to Tibet in winter than in summer?
Summer is usually the peak season for traveling in Tibet. Most people think it is impossible to travel in winter because it might be very cold and covered with thick snow. The truth is: it is a myth. It can be a little bit cold in winter, with temperatures dropping below zero at night and warmer during the day. In the day time, the average temperature in Lhasa is usually between 12 and 15 degrees. You can see the weather is sunny, clear and feel warmer in the afternoon. A clear winter skies are ideal for photography, too, with bright sunlight and thin air to bring the clarity. The advantages in general are: less tourists, beautiful scenery, and cheap tour cost!
