October: Take a visit to beautiful sites of Tibet in good weather.

Although the temperature begins to fall, October is still a month to enjoy the sights of Tibet. It may be a little cold there, but still, you could feel the warmth when walking in the sun. You can head south to some popular sites like Mount Everest and Yamdrok Lake.

November: Lower prices and more comfortable

The temperatures of November will drop greatly. It’s not a good idea to go trekking in Tibet during this time. Still, there are a great many of things you could do in Tibet. Due to the off season, the price of the tour will be lower than usual. You could enjoy the breathtaking views of Tibet such as the Potala Palace and the Jokhang Temple with less money and more fun.

December: Walk along Lhasa River and watch birds there
