Aizawl in Summer (March - May)

Since Aizawl has a typical humid subtropical climate, summers are quite warm and sticky here. The heat is not as much because of the higher elevation, but humidity is quite alright. Temperature stays around 25°C on an average, which is quite bearable, especially if you are travelling from warmer places. As a bonus, if you come during April, you will see the flowers of the hills at their prettiest. hence, Aizawl is flocked by tourists mostly in summers.

Aizawl in Winter (October - February)

October is not part of winter in Aizawl. It is more like a shouldering autumn season before the favourable climate completely kicks in. It still rains quite a bit in this month, but much less than the monsoon. It is in winter that the real beauty of Aizawl comes out. Try going in November, when the skies have just got rid of the clouds, and the mist of winter is yet to completely set in, which means views of mountains are unhindered. Winter temperature ranges from 11°-23°C, dropping to the coldest in January. Stay for Christmas if you are going in December. The festival is celebrated with lots of grandeur in the city. It is worth enjoying the lights and all the special flavours of the season.

Aizawl in Monsoon (June - September)

Monsoons do not bring heavy rainfall in Tungnath. Between July and September, there is some scanty rainfall in the region. It is not too adverse to stop tourism altogether, but the crowd is inevitably thinner than summer. The main problem of the monsoon is the overcast sky. From around late summer to the monsoon months, the sky remains covered in a layer of grey clouds and the view of the mountains becomes shrouded and vague. Given that the scenic beauty of the Garhwal is one of the chief attractions of Tungnath trek, this will be one disappointment that tourists and trekkers might face. Apart from that, the area becomes prone to landslides. Hence, be careful while planning your trip during this time.
