Best time for Arun Valley Trek
In order to trek around Arun Valley, the best months are from early March to mid-May, and from October to late November. We suggest avoiding the monsoon season that runs from about late May until mid/late September.
You will see an impressive view of the Rhododendrons in bloom in the springtime, with the many varieties emerging here flowering in various colors. In spring, the trails will be drier and in autumn the sky will be crystal clear, but with the monsoon rains the trails will have changed and some itinerary changes will be required.
