Tibet weather & when to go: June
June is among the best months of the year for a Tibet holiday, with plenty of warm sunshine and average daytime temperatures that range from 9°C to 24°C. This is the start of summer, and also the start of Tibet’s rainy season, although fortunately the rains typically fall only at night, with the occasional short shower in the afternoon.
June's weather in detail
It can get fairly cloudy around Mount Everest in June, however it’s still worth making the journey because the visibility usually clears up as the day progresses. Keep in mind though that infrequent mudslides are a possibility, which can foul up travel arrangements. This is also cracking weather for trekking around sacred Mount Kailash, where the views are sublime.
There is more oxygen in the air during June, but you’ll still want a few days to acclimatise in Lhasa before heading further afield. Luckily it’s t-shirt weather in the capital and can at times be quite humid. Regular applications of sun cream will be necessary, and a wide brimmed hat will shield you from the worst of the glare. Pleasant aromas fill the streets midway through the month, as the Incense Festival takes place outside the Jokhang Temple.
