The winter months of December, January and February are the coldest and the nighttime temperatures in the higher valleys often drop below -10 ° C. It can also come to snow. The winter months, however, with their sunny blue skies, and the clarity of the view, guarantee an excellent view of the magnificent, snow-capped peaks!

Travel between December and February is restricted. You should avoid the monsoon season between June and August.
