Tibet, dream destination for many travelers and adventure admirers from all over the world. One reason is it’s isolated position from the rest the world until the early 20th century. It is host to the world’s tallest mountains with Mount Everest the tallest at 8848 meters, over 1500 lakes, vast plateaus and great river valleys.
Linguists generally classify the Tibetan language as a Tibeto-Burman language of the Sino-Tibetan language family. Although spoken Tibetan varies according to the region, the written language is consistent throughout.
The main religion of Tibet has been Buddhism, which was introduced here 1300 years ago by Guru Rinpoche. It is better known quite simply as Tibetan Buddhism.
The weather in Tibet has similar seasons to China. Lower temperatures though due to the higher altitudes. The atmosphere is very dry most months of the year. The average annual snowfall is only 46 cm. It is one of the harshest places for human existence. Weather is cool in summer but extremely cold in winter, solar radiation is extremely strong. During spring and autumn you need to be prepared for four seasons in one day, including the possibility of snowfall.
There are some regional variations; northern and western Tibet are generally higher and colder. The monsoon affects parts of Tibet from mid-July to the end of September.Summers (between May – September) have warm days with strong sunshine and cool nights. At higher elevations (above 4000m) even summer days can be chilly. Winters (between November – March) are cold but there isn’t all that much snow. The period from April to October is the best time to visit and makes Tibet a dream destination, avoiding the coldest months from December to February.
Regional differences: In northern Tibet, the climate is not favorable with an average temperature of subzero and winter lasts from October through May or June. July and August are the best time to visit the area to enjoy warm temperatures, intense sunshine, beautiful scenery and lots of festivals.
Eastern Tibet enjoys its high season from May to September with the exception of July and August because of the Monsoon season: half of Tibet’s annual rainfall happens in July and August bring. In winter, roads are all blocked by heavy snow. Landslides are no exception making traveling difficult.
Although southern Tibet is mild during May through October most rainfall comes from June to September. Heavy rains during the night block roads and make traveling difficult.
