Best time/season to trek Mohare Danda

Mohare Danda Trek is feasible throughout the year, However, it's important to note that certain seasons offer better conditions for a more enjoyable experience. The optimal time to embark on Mohare Danda Trek is from March to May and September to November, during the spring and autumn seasons. These periods provide stable weather, pleasant climates, clear views, and sunny days. Mornings and nights can be chilly, but overall temperatures remain moderate. Spring treats you to vibrant flora along the trail, while autumn carries a festive atmosphere. On the other hand, the monsoon season and winter are considered off-seasons. During the monsoon, the trail becomes muddy, slippery, and prone to landslides. In winter, thick fog obstructs views, and heavy snowfall can lead to trail closures and trek may longer than supposed due to transportation. It's best to plan your trek during spring or autumn for a safe and enjoyable experience.
