Kasol in Monsoon (July - September)

During the monsoon, Kasol experiences a unique charm as the Parvati Valley gets drenched in refreshing rain, creating an ethereal atmosphere. While rainfall adds to the natural beauty, it's essential to be mindful of weather conditions and plan activities accordingly. Monsoon in Kasol invites a more intimate experience, with fewer tourists and a tranquil ambiance. However, it is safe to skip the months between July and September while planning a trip to this place, owing to the dangers that tag along with it. 

Weather & Temperature: From July to September, temperatures range from 10°C to 25°C (50°F to 77°F).

Why Should You Visit:
  • Witness the lush transformation of the landscape with vibrant greenery.
  • Experience the soothing sound of rain amid the breathtaking Himalayan scenery.
  • Enjoy the quieter ambiance with fewer tourists.
Significant Events: Monsoon is a quieter season, and significant events may be minimal. It's an excellent time for personal reflection and relaxation. Hotel prices fall to a large extent on account of it being the off-season. 

Things to Know: Be prepared for occasional heavy rainfall, and check weather forecasts regularly.
Sudden landslides, road blockages, and cloudbursts leading to the torrential downpour which in turn give rise to slippery roads are too risky to take a chance. 

Tips to Plan a Visit:
  • Carry waterproof clothing and gear to stay dry during rain spells.
  • Plan indoor activities or leisurely walks to enjoy the misty landscapes.
