    My family have booked a trip to Kinnaur in November, and I was wondering whether we would be able to see any snow during that time or not? If not then are there any other near by places where there would be snow.

    Thanks Ishu.

    There are high chances of snow during November, especially in Chitkul and Sangla.

    As mentioned there are high chances of snow during November through to March, but as this is a hilly area so I would recommend you do a weather and traffic check before leaving for the destination as sometimes roads can be closed due to a lot of snow fall. Sometimes snowfall starts early as September which is means October would also be an ideal time to visit, with less chances of road blocks.
    Have a good holiday.

    Hello and welcome to the forum!

    The winter season in Kinnaur is from the months of October to May. So during the month of November, you can definitely see snow. It is during the months of December to February though that the region receives the highest snowfall. Make sure that you schedule your trip at least in the first week of November before heavy snowfall occurs. Heavy snowfall can contribute to road blocks and landslides which can be quite dangerous.

    The best season to visit Kinnaur is during the summer season though, from June to September. Temperatures during this time range from 9°C to 13°C which are pleasant for sightseeing. Trekking can also be done during these months as the routes and roads are safe for tourists. However, these months are also the peak season for tourists so make sure that you book well in advance prior to visiting the region.

    Another great season to visit Kinnaur is the spring season, from April to May. The great thing about this season? Flowers are in bloom and give colour to the entire region. Aside from that, it's not as crowded unlike the peak season. You can get discounts in transportation and even in accommodations.

    Like I've said, from December to February, expect heavy snowfall. It's best to avoid Kinnaur during these months as the roads can be very dangerous and avalanches are known to happen. Many hotels and guest houses are also closed during this time as well.

    I hope this helps!
