Kaza Weather And Best Time To Visit Kaza
Located high up in the remote Spiti Valley in Himachal Pradesh, Kaza is a cold desert zone. Tucked away in the lap of the Himalayas, surrounded by snow capped peaks, Kaza has temperatures dipping below the freezing point during winter. From October to February the area experiences heavy snowfall and due to Kaza's weather, it remains inaccessible. So the only time considered feasible to visit Kaza is during the summer months. Let us see how each season treats Kaza and its tourists.
Summer (March to June)
March marks the arrival of summer in Kaza with temperatures rarely going below the 15°C mark. Though mornings are warm, it is pleasant and perfect for sightseeing. It is the best time for trekkers and campers to venture out into the terrain and enjoy surrounding environs. As evening sets in, temperature tends to dip a little and becomes chilly so it is always advisable to carry some light woollens.
Monsoon (July to September)
Being a relatively high altitude area, Kaza experiences moderate to heavy rainfall during monsoon. Rains disrupt normal life. The incessant downpours accompanied by sudden landslides can create problems for tourists. It is advisable not to plan a trip to Kaza during these months.
Winter (October to February)
Perhaps the least favourable time to visit Kaza is in winter. It experiences massive snowfalls and temperatures dip really low. The extremely cold and chilly weather and inhospitable road conditions make it impossible to move around in Kaza. The two main entry points, namely the Rohtang Pass and Kunzum Pass remain closed during these months. January is the coldest with temperatures falling as low as -37°C. Snowfalls accompanied by landslides disrupt movement of vehicles in the region. The beauty of Kaza cannot be appreciated or explored during these months hence a trip is best avoided.
