Best seasons for Sikles trek:

No amount of risk is involved in any of the season you choose to be entertained by this trek  but we suggest the days be during autumn (Staring from September to the November) and spring (Starting from March to the end of May) compared to the days of winter (starting from December to the end Feb) and monsoon (starting from June to the end of August).

With a suitable temperature allowing the pinkish rhododendrons and other floras in full bloom and with no fog to block the alluring view of the mountain. The days of spring and autumn are considered best for the visit.While during Monsoon, the route gets slippery due to heavy rains and leeches. The journey is quite troublesome.And in winter with freezing temperature and fogs blocking the view. You can’t enjoy the potential of what this journey has to give it to you to the fullest
