Monsoon (July - September)

Monsoon is considered the most ideal time to visit, for the rain showers dip down the mercury levels of May and do turn the landscape most refreshing, cool and green. Pamper yourself with some hot tea and pakoras from the stalls at the base village.
Monsoon is the time to indulge in bird watching and photography for the region abounds with wildflowers and deep valleys, though trekking during the monsoon months could be restricted.
