Xining Climate - Seasons & Travel Advice

Xining WeatherLocated in the northwestern China, Xining is considered to be a summer resort with its continental highland semiarid climate. So the summer, from May to September, is the best time to go there. The annual average temperature of Xining is about 6.5C (43.7F) while in January the temperature drops to only -8.9C (16F) and in July it reaches the high of 17.2C (63F) on average.

Actually, it will be windy and cold on the mountain in late March or early April due to the high altitude. The best time lasts from late April to early June, and from September to October. If possible, you may postpone your trip. ;)

According to the previous statistics, the temperature would be 5 F to 30 F at that time. It would be chilly cold. Although there will have several sunnny days, you still need to prepare enough warm clothes, such as down jackets, boots, sweaters, overcoats, long johns, scarves and golves. :)
