Best Time To Visit Har ki Dun

This place is actually a hotspot for trekkers all year round but the best time to visit this place is during summers and monsoons which is from April till November.

The best time to do this trek would be summer (from April to June) & Post Monsoon (from September to December).

Although, if you have a different set of plans and are interested in snow trekking then the best time to visit is winters.

Since climatic conditions in the high altitudes vary from the plains you need to take adequate time to get acclimatized to high altitudes.

In Summer

You can expect subtle and pleasing weather during the summer season. Though usually, you won’t find any fog and sky remains clear most of the time but you really can’t make any predictions about the weather here. If you are planning a trek in the summer season then you must carry light woolen clothes as temperature mostly remains low during the night.

Sankri: 5°C
Seema: 1 to 2°C
Har Ki Dun: (-1° C) to -2°C

In Monsoon

During the monsoon season, the trekking trails remain most prone to landslide. The roads usually remain blocked, but the scenic beauty is worth all the risk. The bit when you are travelling in monsoons you must make sure to check with local authorities, tour guides or tour operators about the weather and road conditions before you actually start your trip or trek.

In Winter

The serenity and solitude are at its best during winters at Har Ki Dun Valley. The valley is showered with snowfall during winters and the accommodation options are also few.
