Tibet Weather in October

Weather:The dry season sets in in Tibet, and the weather begins to get cold. Temperatures in Lhasa usually stay above freezing. The minimum temperature is about 2 °C (35 °F), and the maximum temperature is about 17 °C (61 °F). The dry sunny days and high altitude makes it seem warm during the day.

Clothing:It is best to dress in layers. Bring a coat. Wear sunglasses, and protect your skin.

Things to do:Travel outside Lhasa along the Friendship Highway to Shigatse and Gyantze. If you like hiking, it is a good time to go west to Ngari prefecture (Mt. Kailash and Manasarovar area) in the west of Tibet because it is dry and still warm enough for comfort. Remember to acclimatize before heading to higher elevation places.
