Best time to visit – Summer temperatures here range from 15 degree Celsius to 22 degree Celsius and winter temperatures can go as low as 4 degree celcius . The place receives sufficient rainfall. However, since the town is hilly and the roads are well-maintained, water drains quickly . After a bout of rain, the roads look cleaner and the atmosphere fresher. The waterfalls look very beautiful during monsoon. The fog-wrapped hills are an inviting sight.
