It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Tibet

Peak Season: May to September

The warmer months see the most travelers passing through Tibet. Religious holidays throughout May and June draw in heavy crowds and tighter security; July and August are warm, but sometimes rainy. July is the optimum hiking and rafting period.

Off Season: November to March

Heavy snow blocks many roads and mountain passes, making travel during this period tricky. Many facilities and hotels close down for the season.

Sweet Spot: October; April

The weather is unpredictable during these months as it frequently alternates between hot and cold. The upside is that you’ll experience fewer crowds and, if you’re lucky, cooler temperatures.
