The weather in May is much warmer in Lhasa, with the average temperature of 12.2 °C (53.9 °F). The minimum temperature is 5 °C (41 °F) and the maximum temperature is 19.3 °C (66.7 °F).

May marks the beginning of summer, and the temperature and rainfall increase continually. Long-sleeve shirts, sweaters, and overcoats or down jackets are enough for this weather. Bring an overcoat for the early morning and evening coolness. Ultraviolet radiation is a little stronger outside since the sun shines brighter, so use sunscreen to protect your skin. A sunhat, sunglasses, and suntan lotion are indispensable for avoiding the strong ultraviolet rays in this high-altitude area. Also bring lip protection, such as lipstick or lip balm.
