Lhasa lies in a small basin and the topography is plain. The climate of the city is mild, without severely cold winters or extremely hot summer. It has highland temperate semi-arid monsoon climate. Being a high-altitude city, the air is thin, and temperatures vary greatly within one single day. The average yearly temperature is about 8 °C (46 °F). There is plenty of sunshine all year round, with annual sunshine time reaching 3,000 hours. It is easy to get sunburn in Tibet because of strong ultraviolet radiation. Make sure that you bring your sunglasses, sun cream, hat or umbrella with you.

The annual precipitation is 500 mm (20 inches), with rainfall concentrating from July to September, but the rainfall usually happens at night and it is still sunny during the day. Temperatures generally drop suddenly after sunset. Due to the variation of weather conditions, prepare a variety of clothing.
