During winter, not only the mountains are inaccessible but the highways that take you to the trail heads are blocked if it snows. It is extremely cold in mountainous areas of Tibet in winter. Thus, it is not suitable to do a trek in Tibet in winter. Many people may think that rainy season should be avoided to trek in Tibet. In fact, rather rainy season is the best time for trek, as the weather is mild and the ground in mountain valleys turn green and alpine flowers bloom in profusion. And the best time to trek in Tibet is in spring and autumn, when it’s not too cloudy and not so rainy but it is bit cold in spring.
