Hi,

I am planning to visit Kinnaur in mid-July. Is it good time to visit this place? I guess the monsoon will be at its full swing during this time of the year. What about the road conditions upto Kaza?

Thanks

Kaza means you are eyeing for Spiti too it seems. Spiti is very good in July, Kinnaur is not too bad either. Whatever monsoon impacts in HP is mostly in central and western part, Kullu, Mandi, Dharamsala, Chamba all these are impacted but not Kinnaur to that extent as it comes into rain shadow behind the hills of Uttarakhand. Have a look into comparative last 5 years rainfall of the HP districts in IMD and things would be clear to you.

Also advancement of monsoon means, change of pattern in air circulation and pushing the western disturbances northwards and WD does more problems in these areas than monsoon.

Twice in last 10 years Kinnaur affected badly, 2000 and 2005 both the times, it's flash flood of Sutlej (due to sudden Rain in Tibet) more of monsoon. But do you see any pattern in the year, it's every 5 years, so add 5 to 2005 Hopefully not!!

Cheers and have a nice and safe trip

@kshil

Thanks for the info. I can only wish that the Himalayan weather remain as unpredictable as ever and not follow the pattern .. not this year atleast.

And yes, my final destination would be Spiti. That's why I wanted to know if the road conditions during this time are good enough to travel all the way upto Kaza from Kinnaur.
