Tibet offers fabulous monasteries, breath-taking high-altitude walks, stunning views of the world’s highest mountains and one of the most likeable cultures you will ever encounter. For many visitors, the highlights of Tibet will be of a spiritual nature: magnificent monasteries, prayer halls of chanting monks, and remote cliffside meditation retreats. Tibet’s pilgrims – from local grandmothers murmuring mantras in temples heavy with the aromas of juniper incense and yak butter to hard-core professionals walking or prostrating themselves
around Mt Kailash – are an essential part of this experience. Tibetans have a level of devotion and faith that seems to belong to an earlier, almost medieval age. It is fascinating, inspiring and endlessly photogenic.
Tibet’s other big draw is the elemental beauty of the highest plateau on earth. Geography here is on a humbling scale and every view is illuminated with spectacular mountain light. Your trip will take you past glittering turquoise lakes, across huge plains dotted with yaks and nomads’ tents, and over high passes draped with colourful prayer flags. Hike past the ruins of remote hermitages, stare open-mouthed at the north face of Everest or make an epic overland trip along some of the world’s wildest roads. The scope for adventure is limited only by your ability to get permits.
This is no more the forbidden kingdom. If Tibet has long been on your bucket-list, it’s time to tick it off. It may be a longish journey to get there, and permits, paperwork and guides are required.
*Please note that Tibet tours are only possible for five or more people traveling
together as per the new Visa regulations by the Chinese government.
The best time for your Tibet tour and for visiting Lhasa, is between the months of April and October, when the country experiences gentle, temperate weather and some rainfall. In April, the snows begin to melt and roads that are blocked during the harsh winter months, are navigable once again.
High Season: Between April to October, Tibet experiences pleasant weather with low rainfall. With the lush green landscape and charming floral blossoms, May is the best month to visit Tibet. Temperatures reach up to 20°C in the daytime and are around 6 °C at night. During these months, Tibet experiences about eight hours of sunshine every day.
Low season: October to March. While the temperature ranges between -9 °C to 9 °C during these months, the sunny, dry climate and high altitude ensure that it isn’t freezing cold. However, many roads are blocked and lakes are often frozen at this time, so travel is not recommended. January is the coldest month in Tibet. The country is generally closed to tourists during March for the Tibetan New Year celebrations.
