    Overall Ulan-Ude Travel Experience by Season

    Spring (March through May)

    Summer (June through August)

    The middle-year months have slightly cold weather with high temperatures that are comfortable. June – August is slow/unreported season for tourism in Ulan-Ude, so lodging and other accommodations may cost as much as usual.

    Fall daily highs range from 61.5°F (16.4°C) and 21.9°F (-5.6°C), which will feel very chilly given the humidity and wind. Tourism is slow/unreported during these months due to the weather, so hotels may be normally priced.

    Winter (December through February)

    Weather is far too cold this time of year in Ulan-Ude to be enjoyable for warm weather travelers. The average high during this season is between 21.8°F (-5.7°C) and 3.2°F (-16°C). These times of year are slow/unreported with tourists.
