Weather

Uttaranchal's diversity in terms of altitude means a corresponding diversity of climate. And the range of temperatures is very wide indeed, all the way from tropical to perpetually sub-zero. Low lying areas, known as the Bhabhar plains (at the foothills of the Himalayas) fall within the warm tropical zone, and the higher you go, the lower the temperature goes- ranging, with increasing altitude, from sub-tropical, through warm temperate, temperate and alpine to glacial and perpetually frozen. Average temperatures range in summer from 30ºC in the plains to 14 or 15ºC in the mountains (snowbound regions are sub-zero throughout). Winter temperatures in the plains average 10 or 11ºC, and fall well below freezing higher up.

Most of Uttaranchal is effected by the south-west monsoon in the summer months, and snowfall occurs in the mountainous zones.

Summer - cool during day and cold at night
Winter - snow bound and inaccessible
