Climate

    Lhasa is situated close to the border of Nepal and China, on the northern flanks of the Himalayas and 3,600 meters from the banks of the Lhasa River. This area is fairly inaccessible for tourists between December and January due to the heavy snowfall and poor weather conditions.

    August is the rainy season here when landslides are common. The hottest month here is June, with high temperatures of 22 degrees C. The sun here can be very strong too, so make sure you take plenty of sunblock and a hat to protect from the harsh rays.

    The coldest time here is January when temperatures can drop to minus 10 degrees C.

Hi there,

Its Olympia. I will be in Nepal with a friend on 7 August and we really fancy doing a trip from kathmandu to Tibet for 4, 5 days. Could you give us a price for 10 august including flights from and to Kathmandu?

Many thanks.

Answered by Helen

Dear Ms. Ol***,
Thanks very much for your inquiry. If you enter Tibet from Kathmandu, you need to apply for Chinese Group Visa in Kathmandu, which takes at least three working days. Could you please tell me what time of 7th Aug you will arrive in Kathmandu? If you arrive in Kathmandu on the early morning of 7th, you can start to apply for group visa on that day, and you'll get your visa on 9th and fly to Lhasa on 10th Aug. However, if you get to Kathmandu after 10:00 of 7th, you have to start to apply for visa on 8th, and you'll get your visa on 12th (10th and 11th are weekend), under this situation, you can join our tour starting on 13th Aug. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Warm regards.
