Climbing is best done in Spring( March-May) and Autumn( September- November). The lush green forests, clear skies, and moderate temperature make hiking and climbing more enjoyable.
We do not recommend climbing during the winter and monsoon season. The climb is impossible in winter because the barometric pressure and oxygen availability decrease dramatically. Likewise, in the monsoon season, the trails become slippery, increasing the risk of injuries.
