The best time to visit the valley is between May to October. During this period the temperature is moderate and travelling is easy. But it is located at a high altitude and the summers of the region are cold enough for travellers visiting. So, it is strongly recommended to carry as many woollens as you can. During winters due to heavy snowfall in the region maximum temperature during the day falls below zero degrees. During November and December the min. temperature falls to -15 to -20 degrees. All the roads remain closed during winters and a major part of the valley remains cut off from the rest of the world.
