Summer (May to August) is the best seasons for the Kailash Yatra.
The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. If you wish to avoid
crowds and enjoy some alone time with nature then taking this trip during
winter (Dec., Jan. and Feb.) could also be an option. However, the temperature
during winter could be harsh for most guests. Trekking in the summer or Monsoon
seasons (June to Aug.) will be affected by rain but the summer trek could be a
boon for a keen botanist.
