Tibet Weather in December-Winter Month of December in Tibet
When it gets colder and dryer in November in Tibet, December weather becomes even harsher and it is in winter now. However in Lhasa and Tsetang, it is not as cold as many people usually imagine at all. The temperatures ranges between about -9 °C (16 °F) and 8 °C (46 °F). It is quite windy and dry. People on the streets often ware a mask/skaf and woolly hat.
Tibet in winter sees much fewer tourists than in summer. Therefore, a series of price cut including ticket price, hotel price and flight discount will be implemented during winter. The ticket price for most scenic spots in Tibet is only half of that in the peak time for tourism in Tibet. The hotel price drops by about 40% to 60% from November to next March. However, for reduced tourists, some hotels will be closed in winter, in remote areas of Tibet in particular.
