Planning A Trip To Mcleod Ganj? Here's a snapshot of Mcleod Ganj weather and the best time to visit Mcleod Ganj

Each season comes with its own unique experience. Summers offer the much needed escape from high temperatures of the plains while also opening up the stunning view of the hill station. Considered the best time to visit, most businesses are at their peak. While this would be the best time to go crazy with the wallet, visitors should take caution and book hotels and accommodations in advance. With temperatures ranging around 22°C to 35°C, this would be an ideal time for a fun trip to this little town.

Monsoon: July to September

Although the rains are not as heavy as in some of the other popular destinations in the region, monsoons are usually packed with constant rainfall. A lot of people don’t prefer to visit during the monsoon as there is very little scope to indulge in any of the usual activities like trekking, sight-seeing and so on because of the heavy rains. Having said that, this is when the hill station is constantly engulfed in mist and can turn out to be a truly magical experience. On occasional evenings when the rain washes clear everything in the sky, the view is just exceptional.

Winter: October to February

Winters are usually chilly and the temperatures can range from 0°C to 7°C. With some warm clothes, the winters can be the perfect time to visit if you don’t want the hustle-bustle of the peak season. Most businesses are still open and finding accommodation is also relatively easier. There is also the possibility of catching some snowfall while the town changes its usual appearance and becomes a magical white. If that’s not incentive enough to endure the cold temperatures of the hill station, nothing is!
