Weather in Laos
A tropical climate : 3 seasons
It is absolutely possible to travel in Laos all year round, but know that our motorcycle tours can only be organized from mid-October to June to avoid being too mired in the slippery slopes of the wet season.
Each season is prone to temperature fluctuations. But no worry, the average temperatures are mostly located between 15 to 35 Celsius degrees during the day. Just be aware that nights and early mornings can go as low as 0 to 5 degrees between November and February.
Temperatures across the country vary a lot depending on the altitude, most of the country being at a level that reduces the average temperatures of the country by a few degrees. In general, central, northern and eastern regions are at a higher level than the southern regions, which are at the lowest altitude in the country. The valley of the Mekong River is very humid and temperatures exceeding 35 ° C are not unusual between March and April.
The first months of the wet season (July to October) remain very hot with short rains. In the mountainous regions of northern Laos (including Luang Prabang), the showers mostly occur in the evenings, leaving the afternoons clear.
