I am Planning to go to Shimla / Kullu Manali in July next year. Can anyone plz tell me how the climate will be there in the month of July. I will be travelling with my 2 and half year Son and that is why I have a concern about the climate there. If anyone have the idea how the climate will be in July then please post me a reply, and also let me know which month is best to visit Shimla. Awaiting a reply from someone who knows Shimla well. Thank you !!!

Quote:End of June in north India is usually the start of Monsoon rains and by mid-July Monsoon rains are in full force and most intense and the mountain regions can get floods and even some landslides and some road transport disruption is possible.
So in my opinion, July may not be the best month to travel to the Himalayan mountain regions.
Before the monsoon the period from mid-April to mid-June will be best when it will by warm and sunny with very low probability of rain. October is another good month when the climate is warm but many tourists also visit these regions in the middle of winter (Dec-Feb) to experience snow.
I have been to Shimla many times and for me the best part of a Shimla visit is the scenic "Toy Train" ride from Kalka to Shimla.
Thank you for your suggestion
