Best Time To Visit Uttarakhand

Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination

Uttarakhand can be visited any time of the year. While destinations like Nainital and Mussoorie remain reachable throughout the year, some remote valleys and higher altitudes can be hard to get to for an occasional traveller. The Jim Corbett National Park extends near lower Himalayan foothills and thereby, it experiences milder winters and heavier rainfall. For adventure activities such as trekking and paragliding, March–April and September–October are ideal months as the weather is mostly clear and temperatures are mild.

Whether you’re planning a romantic honeymoon or a spiritual journey, the best time to visit Uttarakhand is the summer season. The temperature in Uttarakhand in winter can get really low, with some places experiencing snowfall. 

It is not advisable to plan a travel during monsoon in Uttarakhand. However, monsoon season is the best time to visit Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand, this is when all colourful flowers are in the full bloom. At higher elevations, there is abundant snowfall during winter in Uttarakhand. Auli near Joshimath is a popular ski resort in Uttarakhand. 

Since more than 80 percent of the state has mountainous terrain, Uttarakhand is visited by travellers looking to beat the heat of lower plains or to enjoy snowfall in Uttarakhand. The state witnesses a three-season climate pattern – Summer, Autumn, and Winter – with a short burst of spring. Dehradun, with its proximity to the river plains, has hotter and drier summer compared to alpine regions. Plenty of springs and waterfalls near Dehradun are ideal to visit in summer. The Valley of Flowers speckled with a variety of fresh blooms, wandering shepherds and nomadic tribes, and the oncoming of tourist season in Uttarakhand make the summer season worth witnessing.


Climate in Uttarakhand

Summer Season in Uttarakhand

Summer in Uttarakhand is synonymous with life. Once the flowers reach their bloom, people of

Uttarakhand indulge in all sorts of festivities and daily chores that winter puts on hold. The famous Char

Dham Yatra in Uttarakhand lasts from May to September. Early spring around mid-April is ideal for

getting the best deals on packages and hotels in Uttarakhand. So, if you’re planning a trek in Uttarakhand

or a romantic getaway, summer is the best time to visit Uttarakhand.


Monsoon Season in Uttarakhand

Monsoon in Uttarakhand lasts usually from mid-June to September. The higher Himalayan region

witnesses heavy rainfall in these months. While Dehradun, Nainital, and Rishikesh also experience strong

showers. Monsoon is a favorable season to plan a trip to Uttarakhand only if you don’t mind being wet all

the time. However, hotel prices and other costs are lower as monsoon is considered a low tourist season in

Uttarakhand.


Winter Season in Uttarakhand

Lasting from November through February, winter is the best season to visit Uttarakhand for honeymoon

and family vacations. Nainital in winter is a picture-perfect hill station to visit with your better half if

you’re looking for a rendezvous. Rishikesh – the spiritual and rafting capital of India – is visited by scores

of travellers looking to enjoy camping and white water rafting. Mussoorie and its nearby hill stations offer

all the rewards a family can ask for in a holiday. The Jim Corbett National Park in winter is another great

destination to visit as there are higher odds of spotting wildlife on a winter’s day. So, Uttarakhand in

winter is as heavenly as the Kashmir Valley.

      I went to Shimla-Kufri. The representative "Rahul" was really helpful. He coordinated everything well. All the things that they offered was upto the mark. The hotel was remarkable, Driver's behavior was polite. They made my trip comfortable. I am fully satisfied with their services and would like to book my next trip from them only. I would highly recommend 1point in my group.

    • Trip to Uttarakhand

      this is my Nth tour with travel triangle and my 3rd trip with TripSailer. To be very honest i was very satisfied with a trip with tripsailer before and never even considered anyone else. But the hotels were not that good. The homestay in auli didnt have proper doors that closed, i had asked for a romantic dinner and that was promised and paid for but did not happen. When after the trip i asked for the same, they said there was some lack of communication and they will give the money back. but it has been almost a month from the trip and we still do not have the money back. repeated communication trial with the travel agency has failed and they are just deliberately not replying to any calls or messages right now.
