As one of the best months to travel in Tibet, April is always considered as the warm-up of Tibet’s peak tourism season, while May is the beginning of Tibet’s peak tourism season. With most areas of Tibet become warmer, the landscapes of Tibet start to refresh from the long winter. Tourists at home and abroad begin rush to Tibet by air or by train, but the scenic spots would not be so crowded by tourists during this time.
April and May are also regarded as the best time to visist Mt. Everest for mountaineering enthusiasts. Flocks of climbers with different colors gather at the Everest Base Camp, turning the base camp into a small UN. For tourists, it is also a great time to visit Everest as you get a chance to witness several brave climbers as well as enjoy a close view of the real appearance of the world’s highest peak. The Mt. Everest is always surrounded by cloud and mist in the other seasons, but not in this season.
It is always sunny on Tibet Plateau during April and May. The temperature of Lhasa during the day is about 20℃ in this season, while be less than 10℃ in the night. So you need to prepare some warm clothes for your Tibet tour in April and May.

Tibetan Festivals Celebrated in April and May
Chawalong Village is located in Chayu County, Nyingchi Prefecture, Tibet. Chawalong has very limited resources, with no access to electricity, phone signals, etc., almost everywhere! Most importantly, there are only 4 roads connecting Chawalong to outside world. However, whichever road you choose, you are going to need to ride horses though some rough sections. Thus, horse is a very important part of Chawalong villagers’ life.
Chawalong Horse Festival falls on Feb. 15th in Tibetan calendar. If you want to experience the most local and traditional life of Tibet, watching the horse festival is your second-to-none choice. Because of very bad road conditions,sometimes horse is the best and the only choice. Villagers also take horse as the closest friends and intimate family member. Horse Racing Festival is a way to communicate,to mingle and also a way to show manliness and bravery.
