Weather Details

This snow trek is organized between Jan & Mar when the region has had good snowfall. Contrary to popular belief, winters is a good time to be in the mountains if one is equipped properly. Most locals inhabiting higher reaches of the mountains don’t mind the problems associated with snowfall and seem to have a good time during these months. Also there are lots of local festivals in these months. In these months weather is generally clear most of the days. Day time is pleasantly warm with one getting to enjoy sitting out in the sun and temperatures would be around 12-17 °C. Evenings are quite cold and one would need to be inside a tent/room or sitting outside next to fire with proper winter clothes. The evening temperatures will be around -3 to 5 °C. Nights can be very cold with temperatures in the range of -8 to 0 °C. Snow Treks India is more adventurous and challenging, so it is very important to keep warm clothes in your journey
