Naukuchiatal - All Season Destination

When to go? Aah! This is really a tough one to answer :) Honestly, I want to be in Naukuchiatal all the time, and everytime I am looking for solitude of the mountains.

Some one rightly said, "Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather".

May - June: The so called "SEASON" time in Naukuchiatal due to summer vacations is full of tourists. The temperature during the day hovers around 18 - 25 degree celcius. Thanks to the lake and amzing greenery, you dont even want a fan if you are under a shade.

July - September: Rains, Rains & Rains! If beauty exists in rains, it has to be Naukuchiatal. One of my favourite months to be in Naukuchiatal purely because of the weather. If you haven't seen a lake in the clouds or the bright shining greenery of the wild hills, please visit Naukuchiatal during these months and witness it yourself.

October - January: October and November are usually very pleasant but also mark the start of winters in Naukuchiatal. Due to "Dussehra" and "Diwali" holidays there is a heavy movement from Gujarat, Maharashtra & Calcutta. It is highly recommended that you plan the trip well in advance. December and January are the coldest months in Naukuchiatal and the temperature hovers around 2 - 12 degree celcius. Please note that it does not snow in Naukuchiatal. One can go to Nainital and nearby areas to see the snowfall.

February - April: Late winters and Spring Time...Such a welcome change. If we had no winter, the Spring would not be so pleasant. Spring makes its own statement so loud and clear that entire Naukuchiatal prepares for the Green Traffic Light and the world thinks GO :-)

Naukuchiatal is definitely an all season destination!!!
