Best Time to Visit Manali

Manali is a beautiful destination with plenty to offer, but the climatic conditions make some part of the year win over the others. The best time to visit Manali is usually between the summer and autumn months from May through October, barring the monsoon season which arrive in July and August when rainfall perpetuates landslides. The summer months of May and June receive maximum tourist influx in Manali and is a great time for trekking/hiking, paragliding, mountain sports, rafting and zorbing. The Hadimba Devi Temple also hosts the Hadimba Devi Festival in the month of May, attracting a number of devoted pilgrims to its doors.

Do keep in mind that if you are travelling during the peak season, its best to book a hotel well in advance. Then, if you travel during lean seasons or just before or after the rush you can get away by paying sometimes less than half of peak prices.

For winter activities like skiing and ice skating, its best to come in the winters months between November and February, though the mountain air can be bone chilling at this time.

Here's a tip, to avoid the high season and yet get your share of the weather in Manali, the spring months of March and April are a good time visit too. The months after the monsoons between September and November are equally soothing with the town looking vibrant and colourful.
