Tungnath in Summer (April - June)

Summertime is undoubtedly the peak season for tourism in Tungnath. During this time, Chopta, the base for Tungnath trekking, remains at its greenest and prettiest. From here the trek is 3.5 kilometres uphill through unravelling scenic beauty. From April to August, the weather stays pleasant, with no rain or snowfall. The Tungnath temple opens during summers, and it is the perfect time for pilgrims. Temperature stays around 16°C, and the climate is moderate. The rhododendrons are also at their reddest during June, making the valleys look like a slice of heaven. This is by far the best time if you want to take a comfortable and enjoyable trek.

Tungnath in Monsoon (Septemer - October)

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.

Tungnath in Winter (November - March)

Winters are for the adventurers and nature lovers at heart. After monsoon washes over the hills, leaving a crystal blue sky and a lovely crisp air, Tungnath comes alive looking quite magical and more sparkling than ever before. The temperature during winter can start from 10°-12°C but go down to -15°C easily. Carry layers of warm garments to keep yourself from freezing. Snowfall is common, and snow is abundant. Trekking through the terrain during this time can be a challenge, but if you are up to it then nothing quite like it.
