The best time to do the Numbur Cheese Circuit Trek is during the spring and autumn seasons. Spring (March to May) offers mild temperatures, blooming rhododendron forests, and clear skies, making it ideal for trekking. The weather is generally stable, and the views of the surrounding mountains are spectacular.

Autumn (September to November) is another excellent time for the trek. The weather is cool and dry, with clear skies providing stunning views of the Himalayan peaks. The trails are also less crowded compared to the peak tourist season in spring.

Both seasons offer favorable conditions for trekking, allowing you to enjoy the beauty of the Numbur Cheese Circuit without encountering extreme weather conditions or excessive rainfall. However, it’s essential to check the weather forecast and trail conditions before embarking on the trek, as weather patterns can vary.
