In general, the best time of year to be in Tibet is from April to beginning of November, after which temperatures start to decrease.
Central Tibet, including Lhasa, Gyantse, Shigatse and Tsedang, generally has very mild weather from April to November, though July and August can be rainy – these two months usually see around half of Tibet’s annual rainfall.
October and November often bring some dazzling clear weather and daytime temperatures can be quite comfortable at Tibet’s lower altitude.
December to February are the coldest months. It is not impossible to visit Tibet in winter, however you have to except cold temperatures. The low altitude valleys of Tibet (around Lhasa, Shigatse and Tsedang) see very little snow.
Spring does not really start before April, though March can have nice sunny days.
Finally, if you intent to go for an Expedition on Mount Everest, the only period of time for such an adventure is April to beginning of June.
