The trekking routes here are very gentle and hence very popular among the tourists. Many of them are short and even newcomers love them as completing them quickly gives a sense of satisfaction.
The most popular trekking routes are:
1. Hanga or Manthala village to Dev Chattar – Chilli to Khillani Village, comprising a total distance of 75 km and ideally completed within 4 days. This beautiful route passes through thick forest, umpteen rivulets and virgin flora & fauna.
2. Bach-Dhar to Padri and then on to Thanalla Village which is around 30 km away and needs 2 days and camping can be done at Padri Meadow.
3. Roushera – Sabhardar – Moar Ghati which extends to around 35 km but surprisingly it is completed within 2 days, and the only night halt at Sabhardar Meadow. This one trek is much difficult and only experienced climbers and expert trekkers undertake it.
These treks offer fascinating views en route and the camping sites present beautiful scenes that entice the tourists to visit Bhaderwah again and again and participate for treks.

The winter season from October to March sees the temperature fluctuate from 15 to 2 degrees during nights and sometimes approach the freezing point. Tourists need heavy woolens as chilly surface winds hurt their spine frequently. The afternoons are somewhat cozy but the blanket of snow turns everything into white.
The months from March to May have some snow left from previous snowfalls but the temperature in the afternoons are very much comfortable. Surprisingly the temperatures do dip to around 2 degrees but it happens very rarely. The flowers begin to bloom and Bhaderwah drapes a new colourful shade across itself.
This is the best time to visit all around. The days in May to June are pleasant and nights cool with slight but inviting nip in the air. Tourists can roam with much difficulty and the heat is comfortable too. All lying snow disappears while breathing new life into the flowering plants. Bhaderwah suddenly is a shutterbug’s haven.
July to September months are supposed to be the monsoon months but the rainfall is scanty at best. This infrequent rain makes the environment extremely hot & humid. But whenever it is about to rain, the views are magnificent. Many couples just wait for this development and enjoy the misty environment full with vapours. The sudden dip in temperatures, create a romantic mood lovers cherish.
