Kheerganga Trek Weather

To experience the best Kheerganga trek weather plan your trip during the summer months. The weather borders on perfect with the temperature being between 13°C to 37°C during this time. The best part about going for the trek during this time is the animals that venture out of their hideouts for a drink by the river.

The best time for Kheerganga trek is between March to June. March to June you can expect pleasant weather, lush greenery and bright blue skies. The nights are equally cool and pleasant with clear star-studded skies. This is also the best time to set up camp in the lush green wilderness of the beautiful Kheerganga trek.

July to September is monsoon in this region and not exactly an ideal time for trekking if you are not very well versed with this kind of terrain. Kheerganga trek temperature during this time ranges between 22°C to 32°C.

October to February is when the temperature begins to drop and range between 3°C to 10°C. In January, with the snow falling, the temperature plummets to sub-zero levels. This may not be one of the best Kheerganga trek weather as several trekking routes may be closed or inhospitable during this time.

Kheerganga Trek Weather

01

Summer (March to June)

Summer (March to June)

The most favourable Kheerganga trek weather season is summer between March to June. Temperatures are hot yet pleasant, ranging between 13°C to 37°C, there isn’t much humidity in the air yet, and wildlife, that otherwise rarely appear are easy to spot during the summer when they walk down to the river for a drink.

You will notice throngs of tourists from near and afar trekking here during this season because roads are the safest and easily accessible during summers. A lot of tourist spots are also open during this season, so taking a stopover or going on a short sightseeing tour is convenient too.

The lake is calm and beautiful and the open, star studded skies serve as the perfect excuse to set up an overnight camp along the trek route. Being peak season, prices are generally higher this time of the year but the Kheerganga trek weather is so delightful between March to June that it is simply impossible to not want to trudge along the route during summer. 

If you plan a summer trip, check out the umpteen festivals like the Indrasan Music Festival, the Summer Hills Festival, and the electric Mahadev Festival, all of which are high-energy tests hosted by Kasol, especially in the months of May and June.

02

Monsoon (July to September)

Monsoon (July to September)

The weather from July to September isn’t recommended Kheerganga trek weather at all. You’re sure to face landslides, slippery roads and road blockages that can hamper your trek entirely. Kheerganga receives moderate to heavy rainfall during these months, and while the place is like paradise for nature lovers, that might not be the case with trekkers.

During monsoon Kheerganga trek temperature ranges between 22°C to 32°C so days are pretty hot and nights are pleasant, the waterfalls look spectacular, the abundance of nature stands out and the rainfall adds a romantic vibe in the air.

But unless you plan to sit around in a cozy hotel room or just go for a walk in the pleasant weather, monsoon is definitely not the right time to visit, especially for trekking. Being the off-season prices are also much lower, but that is reason enough to not visit Kheerganga in the monsoon because no other trekkers are visiting it either.

03

Winter (October to February)

Winter (October to February)

Being the coldest, October to February isn’t extremely favorable Kheerganga Trek weather, owing to which not many would recommend it. Quite a few routes are inaccessible, places are inhospitable and the temperatures are freezing. Temperatures range between 3°C to 10°C and in January when it begins to snow temperatures can drop to 0°C and even -4°C which becomes almost unbearable.

As you climb higher, the air begins to thin down and oxygen levels are low, making the climb slightly tedious. Most animals found here are also hibernating, so spotting exciting wildlife might not be possible and neither is natural.

Winter might be great for those who love the snow and want to relax in the hotel room, wrapped up in woolens, with a hot cuppa, but trekking isn’t the most recommended activity this time of the year. Nonetheless, if you’re looking for some thrill and are sure to brave the weather, you can most certainly choose to visit Kheerganga in the winter and even trek to Pin Parvati Pass, and Sar Pass. But be well prepared because this might not be the Kheerganga trek weather season you’d look forward to.

Best Time for Kheerganga Trekking

Best Time for Kheerganga Trekking

Kheerganga trek weather is good for most of the year, except from July to September, so if you’re planning a Kheerganga trek, the best time to visit is any time after the monsoons. October to February sees temperatures between 3 to 10°C while during February to June Kheerganga Trek temperature is anywhere between 15 to 22°C.

If you’re a wildlife enthusiast, keen on spotting some species during your trek, March to May would be a good time to visit. However, if you enjoy the snow and breeze that’ll literally ‘blow’ your mind away, October to February seems apt for you! But, this time of the year can get extremely cold and trekking up steeper slopes and scaling new heights can get a little difficult, owing to lower levels of oxygen coupled with strong winds.

A few routes are also blocked due to heavy snowfall, which might make your trek inconvenient. Kheerganga Trek Weather in summer is great and most trekkers believe that the best Kheerganga trek weather season is between March to May because it is perfectly pleasant this time of the year, the village is serene yet bustling with activity. Being relatively hotter, the slopes are dry and the rivers are calm, so crossing them is simpler and great fun too.

Hey hi! I'm Divya. This was my experience with Thrillophilia and it was amazing. They've responded always whenever I needed them. About this trip, firstly Kasol is a very beautiful place and the camp we were staying at is located Riverside, a very beautiful location and the hosts are lovely ppl, very friendly, camp in Kasol. They've taken us on Trek to Chalal .... This is a trek trail that goes along the river up to the village of Chalal. And next day was the Kasol trek. It is the beautiful trek that I've experienced till now ( not that I've climbed many mountains and hills). It was covered all over with snow. The views were amazing.. We had a guide trekker who took us on the trek. Overall it was a wonderful experience!!! Thanks to Thrillophilia, sincerely!!!!
"One of the experiences, which will always remain in my memories. Kheerganga is a trek which is beautiful, not so tough, tiring but the moment you reach the destination, you forget it all and you feel that you have reached a different realm altogether. I can still feel the fresh air hitting my face up there. anyone who can trek 4-5 hours continuously, please do not miss this place.\nand our trek guide is VICKY a very good person\n"

Highly satisfied with my maiden camping experience at HIM CAFE.. Realy awe-inspiring views around the camp. Decent food to get in a hilly terrain. Pawan-caretaker is too friendly and caring. Tents were clean and safe.. Day 1: Reached the camp by 2.00 pm checked in the tent. Started trek to Tosh village after a Powernap at the tent. Tosh village is too beautiful that it couldnt be penned down. Wittnessed aome melting snow while sunset which is an imsane experience. You can enjoy at cafes at Tosh before your way bck to the camp. Had dinner. Enjoyed Bonfire. Day2: If you are trekker then use this day for an early morning trek to a stunning water falls which is little above the Tosh village. Come back for a sun kissed breakfast. I had Kheerganga in my list so i started to Barshaini which is the starting point of the Kheer ganga trek. So its ideal to stay at Tosh before/after a trek to kheerganga. Amenities at camp: Food Tents Cafe Kitchen Clean washrooms And what not amazing sceneries around. An amazing one day backpacking experience which could carry lot of insane memories. Happy Trekking..

We were a group of 7 people and we decided to take this adventure trip. We were really happy with the locations, camps, and the people we met there. The only issue we faced was that the camp owners try to fit in more and more people in a single camp. Apart from that, the place was very scenic and engrossing with the river flowing on one side. We were lucky that we witnessed snowfall there. Our trek to kheerganga got canceled due to snowfall but they took us to a trek of Grahan Village which was equally beautiful. This would be your lifetime experience, walking on snow covered paths, drinking water from the natural streams, holding the hot cup of tea and sharing a common washroom. We got a great guide as well to help and cheer us throughout the trek. Overall, it was a tour with a lot of memories and fewer expenses. So, yeah definitely go for it.

Ana amazing trek for all trekkers. We came across normal trails, snow trails (which was quite amazing and dangerous just because of black slippery ice). Overall, the trek is simply amazing and the desitnation (Kheerganga) is just speechless. Full of snow makes it more beautiful.
