Hi All,

I'm planning for Uttarakhand in February first week. my places of interest are Auli, Jim Corbett park, Munisyari, Pithoragarh, Chopta, Binsar, Tiger falls, Dharchula ( in that order of preference).
my tour itinerary (probable) is as follows:

1. Reach Dehradun airport (via Delhi) and stay overnight.
2. Visit nearby religious places (like Rishikesh, Haridwar, etc)
3. Visit Jim Corbett and stay overnight. (2 days and one night)
4. Start early and do my other destinations as per altitude gain
5. Do one day trek (if possible) and visit any lake.

My queries:
1. is it advisable to do it February first week? how will the road conditions be?
2. will there be snow in first week of February?
3. any other offbeat natural place that I must visit?

i've got a max of 9 days for this visit.


thanks in advance for your support.!!!

I am assuming, you are moving on a hired cab for all these destinations after Haridwar.


1. Reach Dehradun airport (via Delhi) and stay overnight.
You can goto
Haridwar or Rishikesh same day as public transport or buses run late also.

2. Visit nearby religious places (like Rishikesh, Haridwar, etc)
Few days are ok.

3. Visit Jim Corbett and stay overnight. (2 days and one night)

Go on hired taxi.

4. Start early and do my other destinations as per altitude gain.

Check map for destinations to cover of your interest.


5. Do one day trek (if possible) and visit any lake.

Lakes are Nainital, Bhimtal, Naukuchiatal etc enroute to Munsiyari, if going via these Lake areas.
Khalia Top small trek is there if there is no snow, you can do it.

My queries:
1. is it advisable to do it February first week? how will the road conditions be?

Normally ok.
Black ice at places can be there.
Western Disturbance can bring snow on road.

Possible to move in in Kumaon.
Not much snow if weather is not having any Western Disturbance.

2. will there be snow in first week of February?

At tops only if weather is clear.
Not on roads.
Black Ice is there in shadowed are at upper regions.
It snows good during Western Disturbance only.
Keep eye on weather report.


3. any other offbeat natural place that I must visit?
Go via 1 route return via other route. Check map.
You can easily cover many destinations.
