Monsoon (July to September)
While temperatures remain between 22°C and 32°C, it is best to avoid Kasol during monsoon. Rains pose several problems for travellers. There are sudden cloudbursts accompanied by heavy rainfall making roads rather slippery and dangerous. There are frequent landslides and roadblocks that can become risky for tourists. Despite the greenery and freshness that rains bring with them, one is advised against planning a trip during these months.
Winter (October to February)
Winter too is not considered an ideal time for visiting Kasol. It is extremely cold and chilly with frequent, heavy snowfall. Wearing layers of clothes and staying indoors can’t be much fun and isn’t what vacations are all about. Most of the roads also remain closed due to snowfall. In winter, tourists will miss the chance of being out in the nature, enjoying the freshness and clear skies.
