Hemkund Sahib is one of the most sacred Sikh religious sites. Open from May to October, your choice of time to plan your visit will vary on the taste and priorities. Before planning a trek, it’s important to have an understanding of Hemkund Sahib temperature in different seasons.
May to Mid-June
During May, the last 3 km of the 6 km trek from Ghangaria are covered with snow. You can see some beautiful alpine flowers on the way to Hemkund. The average temperature remains between 11 degree celsius to 23 degree celsius. In case you’re clubbing Hemkund with a trek to the Valley of Flowers, please note that you won’t find a good variety of flowers during this period.
Mid-June to Mid-July
In June, the snow starts melting and you can see a fresh bloom. During this period, the average temperature remains between 13 degree celsius to 21 degree celsius.
Mid-July to August End
Since this is the peak season for Valley of Flowers, you will notice a full bloom of the widest variety of alpine flowers. The famous Brahma Kamal can also be seen in the Hemkund Lake during this period. The average temperature remains between 13 degree celsius to 20 degree celsius.
This is probably the best period to visit Hemkund Sahib in terms of weather. However, heavy rains prior to September can make road conditions challenging. The average Hemkund Sahib temperature during this period is 13 degree celsius to 20 degree celsius, skies are clear, monsoon has passed and the Brahma Kamal flower is in full bloom.
