When to go

The peak-season (Mid-September through to November) which occurs after monsoon season has pleasant conditions and is a great time for trekking but accommodation can be expensive. February through to April is the second best time to visit with warm weather and when the Rhododendron blooms, and before the monsoon season begins. Learn More
