Rains in mountains can be tricky and only adventure-living tourists can dare to enter. It is a personal preference, but, the misty clouds rain brings along changes the atmosphere, loved by many.

Kullu is magical in Indian summers and tourists flock the place in great numbers. Kullu can be visited throughout the year, except for the monsoon period from July to August.

One can witness snowfall and enjoy the white sheet all over the valley.

The weather from March to June is very pleasant and inviting to most. The temperature ranges from 10 to 25 degrees and always stays in the comfortable zone. Tourists arrive here in great numbers and take part in many activities available here like camping, river-rafting and trekking activities. The nights are colder and light woolens are recommended and light cottons for the day. Those opting for trekking should carry heavy woolens as the temperature dips at spots on the mountains.

The monsoon season which starts in July and continues till August is avoided by many because of heavy rainfall. This region is prone to landslides and it is risky travelling here. The rainfall affects a number of tourist activities in town. Those who like the misty environs and cherish the sceneries neglect any travel advisories and arrive here in great numbers.
