The Best Time to Visit Uttarakhand

The best time depends more on the purpose of your Uttarakhand tour. For example, The Summer Season (March to June) is a great time to try adventurous sports like river rafting, trekking, paragliding, hot air balloon rides, and mountain bikes. The temperature ranges from 20 to a maximum of 35 degrees on hot sunny days.  Get face-to-face with amazing wildlife, and enjoy the scenic lush green views in Jim Corbett National Park


Winters (October to February) are often preferred for Char Sham Yatra, or visiting the Hill stations to enjoy chilly winters and snow-covered mountains. Trekking, Skiing, and ice skating are some of the popular winter sports to experience in extreme winters. The other benefit of planning the Uttarakhand tour package in the off-season is the opportunity to stay in luxury hotels at budget-friendly prices.


We suggest avoiding visiting Uttarakhand in Monsoons i.e. between July to September. Heavy rainfall may spoil the vibe of your Uttarakhand trip as most of the adventure spots are kept closed.
