Best time to trek to Gosainkunda Holy trek.

Most of the trekkers and travel agencies recommend spring and autumn season as the best time to trek. These months have a clear day and night and a stable temperature. The visibility during this time is great. It enables trekkers to get a clear view of beautiful mountains, hill, and surroundings.

The trekking trails also get wets and slippery in these seasons.
