Lhasa Weather in February

CityWeather
Lhasa's February is still cold and dry, with a big difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures. In spite of the bitter cold at night, the weather is very pleasant during the day when the sun is shinning in the sky. Windy days gradually increase, so flying sand and sandstorms often take place. Snow may be also possible in this month.

Tibetan New Year usually falls in January of the Gregorian calendar, so it’s a good time to experience various Tibetan festive and cultural celebrations. For instance, the Butter Lamp Festival on the evening of the 15th day of the Tibetan New Year, when the Barkhor Street will become a gallery of all shapes of colorful Butter Lamps. Thus, Lhasa may experience a short peak travel period at this time.
