Tips for Lanzhou Weather

The annual precipitation is 328 millimetres (12.91 inches), which is concentrated during the Summer, so pack an umbrella. The best season is usually from May to October when the temperature is most suitable. If local folk customs like festivals appeal to you, Winter can be a good tourist season.
 

In Winter, a warm coat, scarf, gloves, hat, and boots are needed.  All year round, a warm coat is a necessity on your trip to Lanzhou since the temperature can drop considerably in the evening. Other things to carry with you are a bottle of water and sun protection, especially a lip balm.
