Its temperature may ascends to 28℃(82.4°F) in summer, but plummet to minus 15℃(5°F) in winter. On the high plateau, the sun radiation is terribly strong and harmful, but the air is too thin to block off or retain heat. It leads to the temperature extremes which occur respectfully in the daytime and the nighttime during twenty-four hours. The winter in Tibet usually lasts from December to March. The best time suggested for you to visit Lhasa, Shigatse and Nyingchi is between May and October.
