Speaking of the best season to undertake this trek, it is during autumn from September to November, when the weather is clear with a mild temperature. Another season to undertake this trek is during spring from March to May, when the flowers will be in full bloom with a praiseworthy whether. As this trek is a high altitude trek, we would not recommend people with breathing problems to undertake this trek. However, even healthy people may have some altitude sickness and we ensure that you need not worry about it. Leave everything to our experienced team's hands who will lead you through the steep hills and rocky uneven routes and will ensure that you will get the best out of the trek.
