When to Trek?
February to April (Spring Season) is the time you can enjoy the view of the majestic mountains with no clouds and this is also the time to enjoy different flora with blooming rhododendrons of vibrant colors. Days are apparently hot while walking but you can feel relief at night. Days are longer so you can cover bit more distance as well. Late September to late November (Autumn Season) is the most popular season as the sky remains clear and rain is at a minimum. It provides uninterrupted and crystal clear views of the Himalayas for several hundreds of kilometers. December and January are the coldest months with heavy snowfall in the upper hills, crossing the passes at this time can be impossible.
