The best seasons for traveling to Namche Barwa are autumn and winter when the humidity is relatively low and visibility is higher than in summer. The average altitude in Linzhi is 2,800 meters making winter a more comfortable time for visitors, as cool temperatures and low humidity make the affects of altitude stress less likely. Sightseeing along the Brahmaputra by Luxury Cruise Ship is another highlight of this trip.
