Lijiang Climate

- Best Time To Visit

With an altitude of 2400 meters above sea level, Lijiang enjoys a highland climate with distinct dry and rainy seasons. The average annual temperature is 12.6ºC without drastic changes. It has three different climatic zones, ranging from subtropical in the southeast, warm temperatures in the center, and cold temperatures in the northwest. What's more, vertical climate in some highlands can also be seen in Lijiang. Without too much change from spring to winter, the weather of Lijiang allows visitors to get there at any time.

However, Lijiang's rainy season begins in May and ends in October, with the heaviest and most recurrent rainfall periods occurring during July and August, meaning that this is hardly the ideal time of year to visit the Lijiang area. Like all highland areas that are bordered by mountains, the weather in Lijiang can change several times in a single day. Hence the popular saying: You may experience all four seasons within the span of a single day!" So layered clothing, at least the use of warm outer clothing in the mornings and evenings, is imperative.
