The Australian camp hiking trip is accessible all year round, but you shouldn’t hike during the monsoon season from June to August. Muddy trails may hinder your adventure and cloudy days may obscure the essence of the Australian camp. It is also safe to trek to the Australian camp-Dhampus in winter since it does not rise too high altitudes. The winter nights are cold and chilly during the winter days.
The best time to trek in the Australian camp is during the spring and autumn seasons. During these months of the year, the weather is clear and pleasant with lots of greenery surrounding us as well as clear skies above us. The Spring season (March-May) is the time when nature is at its most vibrant. There is a lot of life in the forest and along the trails with a variety of flora and fauna enjoying the warm weather after the harsh winter. Autumn (September-November) is also a great time to go hiking as the environment is fresh after the rain showers. A clear view of the Himalayan range can also be seen from the Australian Camp and from the Dhampus Village.
