Tibet is probably the only destination among the Himalayas that's not as known for its adventure circuits as the rest are. But do not underestimate this destinations as just another Trans-Himalayan area of the Himalayas. Tourism in Tibet offers much more than Buddhism, monasteries and cold desert-like weather.
Tibetan winters, as might be supposed, are fiercely cold. But for half the
year, strong sunlight warms the thin air, making most days in Lhasa
comfortably mild and, owing to protective mountains, relatively windless.
Summer temperatures hover above 30'C (high-80s F) and only to drop to a
searing -23'C (-10'F) in midwinter. The best time to visit is from late
spring to early fall.
