Best Time to Travel
Autumn (Sept. to Nov.) and spring (March to May) are the best time for Hiking . The weather is delightful and pleasant during autumn. The mountain views are astonishing.
The hills are wrapped with beautiful flowering rhododendron during spring. Majority of the trekkers find spring best time to hike to Australian Camp since they love to see flowering rhododendron.
Winter( Dec-Feb) will be very harsh due to cold and cloudy weather which hide the mountain peaks.
Summer will be too hot for some trekkers. Heavy rainfall occurs and disturbs the transportation and even walk in the mountain.
