We suggest our guests to carry casual attire and layered cloths as packing list. Long sleeved cotton shirts or T-shirts are enough for the day time. But it’s wise to take coat or some jackets as temperature decrease at night time.

Sun glasses, moisture cream, thermal underwear, warm woolen hat, gloves, sandals, rain jacket, camera, towel, sun blocking cream are other important things to take along.
The climate of Tibet is favorable to travel from April to the November. However Lhasa’s climate is more clement than the other part of Tibet, its good to travel year-round. May, June and September are the primary tourist season in eastern Tibet.
