Uttarkashi in Winter (October - March)

Although the climate gets a bit harsh in Uttarkashi during winters, with temperatures stooping down to sub-zero levels, this season has its very own charm. A portion of the mountains covered with white snowflakes creates the perfect setting for skiing. For instance, the slant of Dayara Bugyal is a favourite among snow-sport lovers. Do not forget to carry substantial amounts of woollen clothing to appreciate the white magnificence of the region.

Uttarkashi in Monsoon (July - September)

Although vacationers prefer to stay away from Uttarkashi during the monsoon season, the enchantment that rainstorms bring to this holy town creates an unrealistic sight. Trees are greener, skies are bright blue and the entire region is dominated by the vibrant display of vivid hues, washed anew by the refreshing downpours. With decent amounts of rainfall, the monsoon season begins in Uttarkashi in July and proceeds until September. Apart from carrying umbrellas and raincoats, packing cotton garments and light woollens is recommended. Local sightseeing gets affected because of the slushy mud. Landslides and roadblocks are widespread during this time, which is why one should be careful while moving around. Nonetheless, it is an excellent time to witness many festivals celebrated in Uttarkashi.
