Northwest Indian Himalaya

Northwest Indian Himalaya

The magnificent mountains of the Garhwal Himalaya together with the cultural and historic gems of Himachal Pradesh, make this region an adventurer's delight.

When is the best time to travel to Northwest Indian Himalaya?

The climate in the Northwest part of the Indian Himalaya is predominantly cool during winter and moderately warm during summer with little precipitation outside of the monsoon season. The best time to visit would be either before or after the monsoon, which takes place from mid-June to late September. Avoiding Delhi from April to May as this is peak humidity reaching up to 40°C and may be uncomfortably hot.

On our Curzon’s Trail & Kuari Pass trek temperatures will become slightly colder as you gain height with night-time being even chillier. There is the possibility of encountering winter snow on the Kuari Pass and as this is a mountainous area, although unlikely, short storms and rainfall cannot be ruled out.

The spring and autumn are also the best times to visit the foothills of Himachal Pradesh when temperatures are mild during the day and rainfall low.

If you can't make the dates of our group departures, then take a private departure on dates to suit you, or we can create a Tailor Made holiday to the Indian Himalaya, especially for you and your family or friends.
