while every place has a best time to visit , Dalhousie gives you reason to visit anytime of the year ,making it a haven for honeymooners. However the warm months of May and June are visited the most by those wanting to beat the summer heat. The super cool months between December and February May not appeal to everyone but still tempts one because of the snowfall at higher elevations in places like Dainkund peak.
You must be careful while vacationing in the months between July and September as the town experiences heavy rains around this time. August and September sees heavy rush of Hindu devotees taking a trek to the Manimahesh lake.
