Turpan Weather - Best Time to Visit Turpan

Turpan has an arid desert climate, dry, hot and windy. Nicknamed, "the Oven", the region is very dry and extremely hot during summer time due to long sunshine time and lack of rain throughout the year.

Spring

Spring does not really get under way until March and continues until May. The changeable weather condition, strong winds, arid days make it a poor time to visit.

Summer

Summer begins in June earlier than China's any other inner provinces. Summer is extremely hot particularly for the area around the Flaming Mountain with some places reaching 48 degree centigrade. Generally speaking, the area sees little rain water during summer but regional heavy rain sometimes causes flooding.

Autumn

Autumn is no doubt the best season to visit Turpan. It has clear skies and brisk air and the winds are less strong during this period.

Winter

Winter is cold and dry.
