What to Wear for a November Nagqu Travel

You will need to take plenty of clothes to stay warm, as the area is pretty cold throughout the year, with daily temperatures never getting above 15 degrees. Layers are better than thick jackets and sweaters, and can help you stay warmer. It is also easier to warm up or cool down by peeling off layers of thinner clothes. For travelers to the region, it is a good idea to bring along a face mask, to help protect yourself from the dry, arid winds and air of Nagqu. The air can leave your throat dry and sore, and the harsh winds of the prairies can chap lips and dry skin to cracking. The wind is always cold, mainly due to the higher altitude and colder climate of the area.
