Much fewer people visit Lhasa at this time. Lhasa does not experience severely cold winters but bring winter clothes, such as down jackets, pullovers, and sweaters. Sun protection, moisturizer, and lip balm are advisable because of the strong sun and dry weather.

Winter is considered the low tourist season, so hotel and tour rates are cheaper than usual. Getting train tickets to Lhasa is also much easier than in summer. As for the transportation, from December to February the thawed road can create trouble. Please take care when traveling in Lhasa. See our Lhasa Tours.
