Himachal Pradesh Weather And Best Time To Visit Himachal Pradesh
Himachal Pradesh, northern gem of India, is a delight no matter which month of the year you visit. The breezy and bright summers make way for the grey and misty monsoons before the pleasant and slightly chilly Autumn welcomes the freezing Winter months.
One of the most coveted summer destinations in India, Himachal Pradesh and its fine weather make for a paradise for those who like mountains and the clear air of high altitudes. Here's a quick and comprehensive guide on the best time to visit Himachal Pradesh.
Summer (March to June)
An ideal time to visit Himachal is during the summer season, when the area enjoys a spectacularly pleasant climate, occasional thunderstorms and pre-monsoon showers especially in the month of June. A huge number of domestic and international tourists flock to the various hill stations across the state during these months so the prices are relatively higher; though Himachal has plenty of options for the budget traveller as well.
Monsoon (July to September)
Monsoons in Himachal are breathtakingly beautiful, however, the state becomes wet and quite land-slide prone. This makes monsoon a low season, tourist-wise, hence making accomodations easier and cheaper. The only drawback is that trekking, hiking and other adventure opportunities are stopped at this time.
Winters (November to February)
December to January are the coldest months here and the temperature drops down below zero often causing snowfall. If you like the romanticism of snow, then this is the perfect time to visit the state. Though snow packed roads might cause a hindrance as parts of the state lose connectivity during these months.
Since this is the off-season as most prefer to stay away from the cold temperature, it's easy to land great deals on accommodation.
