Chopta is an absolute destination and a hill station which can be visited round the year. If you wish to visit the sacred Tungnath Temple then visit from April to November, otherwise you find the temple closed. Best time to to travel to Chopta is in Summers (April – June) and Winters (Oct – Dec). Travellers interested in snow fall or want to experience snow trekking in Chopta then Jan to March are the best months.

Chopta Weather

Chopta in Summers: The weather of Chopta remains salubrious and pleasing during summers. The Himalayas are distinctly visible and the cool breeze adds charm to the vacation. Carry light woollens with you.

Chopta in Monsoons: The greenery of Chopta welcomes the tourist to get lost into the wilderness of nature. Enjoy the sip of tea, gazing at the snow capped peaks at Chopta during monsoons. There are chances of getting roads blocked for a couple of hours due to landslides but the scenic beauty of Chopta during monsoons is worth taking the risk. Do carry raincoats.

Chopta in Winters: Serenity and solitude are at its best during winters at Chopta. The region is blessed with snowfall during winters and the accommodation options also remain few. But you can see the best of Chopta during winters as it looks like mini Switzerland during winters. Winters are freezing at Chopta so do carry heavy woolens.

      Posted by Chopta Tourism| September 24, 2018 |Reply

      Hi Harika, It will be snow all around and yes very cold during evening and night. Do carry enough woollens, baby foood, baby milk and general medicines. It is completely safe for kids. For trekking, you will have to hire porter to carry her.

      Also sometimes due to hard and melting ice, it becomes difficult for adults as well to trek in some areas.

      It is safe, however as its monsoons, the journey will not be as smooth as you get during other parts of the year.

      There is no direct bus to Chopta from Rishikesh.

      For Snowfall January to March is the best time.
