When to Travel to Tibet - What to Pack
Since temperatures in Tibet tend to vary, it's best to be prepared for all kinds of weather for your Tibet trip. When travelling to Tibet in the summer, be sure to bring along thin cotton clothing. We recommend bringing along some clothes with long sleeves and a pair of full-length trousers. This will help to protect you from the sun's bright rays and it will also allow you to enter the many temples and palaces in appropriate dress.
As mentioned above, it can get quite cold during the winter months, but it can also get quite cold on high mountain passes and other cool areas. Be prepared by bringing along some warm clothes. A thick sweater and a warm pair of trousers are a necessity in chilly temps. You may also want to bring along a fleece sweater and/ or wind jammer, gloves and a cap. Don't forget your sunglasses, despite cool temperatures... there's generally always a very bright sun in the sky shining down on you.
Proper, sturdy walking shoes are also a necessity when travelling in Tibet on a Tibet trip. Not only because they're nice and warm, but because many of the paths are difficult to walk upon.
