Weather Conditions in June

change start

The middle of June typically marks the beginning of the monsoon. Clear mornings are still possible but get increasingly less likely towards the end of the month. Be prepared for rain and hot humid weather in the low elevation valleys. The added moister means the hills are beginning to change to their vibrant monsoon green. The weather is generally a little drier than in the low valleys at high altitude, but cloud cover can be frustrating when trekking to viewpoints. As always in the spring, early morning is your best chance for clear skies.

On average there are 17 days with precipitation in June. The highest point on the trek is Gosainkunda at 4380 m. During June, expect high temperatures of around 11.1°C (52°F) and lows down to 1.1°C (34°F) at Gosainkunda.
