Tibet is high altitude plateau set amid tall mountain ranges all around. The mountain ranges catch the rainfall before it reaches the basin, so most of Tibet except the southeastern area is a desert steppe, tundra or permafrost. So generally expect cold and dry weather.
Most of Tibet experiences frost at least 6 months of the year, and the highest lakes have ice except from about about October to March. The weather varies a lot from region to region, and Lhasa (elevation 3,490 meters (11,450 ft)) is ideal for tourists to the region because it is in a lower elevation area valley in the warmer and wetter central and southeastern part of the country.
Lhasa only gets about 68% of the oxygen at sea level, so altitude sickness is a problem for most visitors. The valleys of Lhasa, Shigatse, Gyantse, and the Brahmaputra are free from permafrost and are well cultivated. See weather information for Dingri, Shigatse, Tsetang, and Lhasa
Most of the territory has a cold, dry and harsh climate. The annual precipitation in Lhasa is relatively higher at 500 millimeters (20 inches), and the annual precipitation across the region averages between 100 and 300 millimeters (4 and 12 inches). January is the driest and coldest month at -9 °C (16 °F) with virtually no snow.
