What is the best time to visit Manikaran Sahib?

The town of Manikaran lies in Himachal Pradesh at the height of approximately 1760 metres above sea level. This staggering height makes the weather in this region extremely cold throughout the year with an average temperature of around 10 degrees. Due to this reason, many individuals prefer to visit during the summer season (April - June), when they do not feel like staying in to avoid the cold. The place is also famous for its natural hot springs that are scattered around the entire town and make for a prime visiting spot. Winters and cold and harsh, however, a lot of people like to visit Manikaran during these months as well.

Manikaran Sahib in Winter (October-March)

The frigid winters in Manikaran that last from November to March are perhaps the most non- idealistic times to visit the town. During these months, Manikaran is left in a dull gloom which is hard to overlook due to the sheets of snow that press into the ground and leave it almost inaccessible. Although, this abundance of snow also means that skiing is a preferred activity during the winter season. The temperature in Manikaran in the winters reaches as low as -8 degree Celsius which hinders tourists from venturing into the cold, teeth chattering weather.

Manikaran Sahib in Monsoon (July-September)

The monsoons in Manikaran last from July to September and the temperature during these months does not cross a maximum of 10 degree Celsius. Manikaran also receives an average annual rainfall of 200mm, which is entirely received during these months. This means that there is more often than not, a cascade of rain that falls in spurts all over this town, during the monsoon season. Since rains may hinder your travel plans, it's best advised not to visit Manikaran during this time. However, Manikaran’s natural beauty shines forth due to the continuous rainfall that leaves the town to bask in a luminous glow which is what attracts a lot of tourists during this period.
