Lhasa August Weather

The weather is generally warm and humid and the sun is strong in August. The average temperature is 15.25 °C (59.5 °F), with a minimum temperature of 9.4 °C (48.9 °F) and a maximum temperature of 21.1 °C (70.0 °F).

The rain falls but usually at night. Rainfall may block roads and make travel difficult but it also makes for excellent scenery.  The weather changes quickly. A suuny morning may be suddenly replaced by a storm at noon, or vice verse. Locals literally call this weather "four seasons in a day".

With the large temperature difference during day and night, wear summer clothes and sun protection, and also bring a sweater or jacket. A umbrella is also needed.

From August 29 to September 4, the Shoton Festival is held, one of the most popular traditional festivals in Tibet. The festival brings celebrations in the streets, in squares, and at monasteries in Lhasa. The festival is a great occasion for both Tibetans and tourists.

August is the peak travel season. At this time, hotel rates are often higher than usual, and tourist attractions are crowded. If you plan to visit Lhasa during this period, book everything in advance. Landslides are frequent during the rainy season, so be careful.
