Weather Details

The temperature at Viraatkhai during summers & winters both are extreme. The lodge at Viraatkhai is at an altitude of 1850 m, where during summers the weather remains pleasant. The snow-clad Himalayan peaks which are distinctly visible during summers, are a treat to the eyes. A kaleidoscopic view can be seen from Chakrata during monsoon months. The monsoon months are from July to September and are the best time to experience the wilderness of nature. Chakrata receives snowfall during winters and heavy woolens are required. Snow-capped Himalayas are best seen from Chakrata during winters. Enjoy bonfires and barbeques in Chakrata during winter months.
