It is suitable for travel to Tibet from April to November, and the best time for travailing is August and September. But if you only visit Lhasa , you can go there anytime all year round.   Sun radiation is extremely strong in Tibet. May, June and September are the tourism season in east Tibet. Most annual rainfall falls from June to September. Usually rains come in the evening in Lhasa, Shigatse area.
