Time flows with eternity, in spite of sunshine, mist, rainbow and snow, leaving our timeless memories on this soil of Tibet. Holding a reverence in nature, we set our sights on the different seasons of Tibet.

January in Lhasa: Stepping into sunshine

Courage is absolutely the first thing if you travel to Tibet in winter, considering the freezing weather in January. In inland areas snow and cold waves keep people at home all the day.

Tibet, the land closest to the sun, however, witnesses crowds of people enjoying leisure in the sun, drinking sweat tea, chatting and laughing. The scene, warm and casual, often makes travelers forget time and where they are.

Statistics show that Lhasa has an average annual sunshine of more than eight hours a day. You can wear only a woollen sweater at noon in the sun in Lhasa even in winter.

February in Lhasa: Celebrating three festivals

The traditional Tibetan Losar (Tibetan New Year) fall on Feb. this year. Traveling in Tibet on that special day will certainly be an once-in-a-life experience.

People celebrate the Tibetan Losar in various ways, which will make your trip more interesting. 

March in Nyingchi: Enjoying peach blossoms

When spring comes to Nyingchi in March, it is a great time to watch the wonder of peach blossoms.

Nyingchi is a sea of peach blossoms in March, like crimson clouds hovering in the embraces of snowy mountains.

Wild peach blossoms can be seen everywhere along the banks of the Nyang River. Taohua Village (or Peach-blossom Village) is the best choice for enjoying peach blossoms. 

April in Namtso: IIce-thawing Namtso Holy Lake

April is not the best time to visit the Namtso Lake for tourists. However, the ice-thawing Namtso Lake presents a rare scenery for most people.
