CCNPIC  By bobo

As Tibet is covered by ice and snow throughout the year, most people assume that winter is not a good time to visit. However, according to expert travelers, the winter temperature of Lhasa averages about 12 degrees Celsius and the daytime temperatures of winter in Lhasa can be even higher as a result of intensive sunlight.

Recommended scenic spots

Recommended scenic spots for Tibet winter travelers are concentrated around Lhasa and Nyingchi. The first is Mount Namjagbarwa whose relatively low altitude and high humidity covers the mountain in fog and cloud in spring and summer. As a result, the dry season, from September to the spring is the best time to appreciate Mount Namjagbarwa. Others sights include the old and new sections of Lhasa, boating in the Crayon Brahmaputra, taking pictures at two rivers' joint (the Niyang river and Brahmaputra river), sightseeing in Norbu Lingka (a beautiful garden on the suburb of Lhasa), living in the holiday village by Basum Lake (a holy lake at the foot of glaciers) and visiting Sangmu village.

Things to take to make sure for an easy winter holiday in Tibet

Altitude in these areas averages around 3,000 meters and can only cause slight altitude sickness. Taking some anti-anoxic medicines like Hongjingtian and Gaoyuanan is enough to ease through the first few days after arriving at these places.


Other things that can ensure travellers have an easy winter holiday in Tibet are sunglasses, glacier caps and sunscreen creams preventing over-exposure to intensive sunshine and Xuemang (snow blindness).


 Some ginger powder is also necessary to get rid of bugs because not all hostels in Tibet can provide bed blankets free of these insects. Breathable underwear is better than cotton underwear for cotton underwear is airtight and the undrained sweat can make people feel cold. Last but not least, bring a painkiller such as paracetemol or aspirin, which can help with frostbite as well as aches and colds. (CCNPIC bobo)
