I decided to try out this trek, and being a solo trekker I was a little conscious at first, but the guide made me feel really comfortable, and even though I wasn’t a very experienced trekker, he made sure I kept up with the group. I was glad I decided to do this, as I also saw some amazing views along the way of the trek.

Gangotri and Chukhambha make a marvellous sight together from the top. The trek leader was a local so we really explored the region in the truest ways. We stopped at a mountain dhaba to eat Maggie.

Two of my siblings and I decided to go on this trek, and we had a great time. The views were spectacular, and the guide, Lalit, was very patient with all of us.

Great experience, must say. With the money back guarantee and zero booking fees, the trek was every bit of what was promises to us by Thrillophilia. Starting from Kunjapuri Mandir to Rishikesh, we were greeted by the great Himalayan ranges throughout our trip. The early morning pick up was delayed by 35 mins, which was a bit annoying. But besides that, the hotel stay and everything was comfortable. We were barely able to spot any wild animals though, but that’s bound to happen - not their fault. Our guide, Pran was very helpful and knowledgeable about every place. He also enlightened us with some local folklore and stories. Decent experience. Will recommend to others. Thanks.

This tour is available for trekking from Kunjapuri Temple to Rishikesh. Our pickup was a little late but the driver was very friendly and offered his knowledge of the area everywhere. It was a nice experience to be in the forests and seeing wildlife and great views.

Meditate under Neegard waterfall if you are going on Kunja puri trek. I had a great experience with these guys!

The best time to go on a Kunjapuri temple Trek is between the months of October to March, which constitutes the winter and beginning of the summer season.
- Summer season occurs between March and June in the region. It can get pretty hot during this time of the year. The temperature varies from 20 degrees Celsius to 40 degrees Celsius, which makes it quite difficult to trek in the region.
- Monsoons arrive in July and stay till September. Due to the rocky, mountainous terrain, the roads are slippery due to sudden bursts of rain and heavy showers, and is, therefore, not the ideal time to go trekking either.
- Winter is between October to February. The weather remains cool and pleasant with bright sunshine during the day and temperatures varying between 20 to 25 degrees Celsius. The nights are cold with the temperature dropping to 8 to 9 degrees Celsius.
Therefore, the best time to enjoy an amazing Kunjapuri trek is during the winter months.
