Regarding Pabbar Valley

Pabbar Valley, the picturesque Pabbar River valley, is about 100 kilometres from Shimla. Here, the landscape is abundantly flourishing. Although the valley is unexplored, the nearby Chanshal Pass contributes to some of its popularity. It is situated close to the boundary of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh. The Chanshal Mountain Range, apple orchards, towering mountains, lush green meadows, and dense oak and deodar woods are all traversed by the stunning Pabbar River.

The valley itself is highly appealing to those looking for adventure. Exciting pathways are waiting to be explored on the mountain slopes’ lush cover.

Pabbar Valley Weather

The Pabbar valley is renowned for having lovely summers with temperatures in the mid-20s Celsius, similar to the weather of Shimla, while the winters may see some snowfall! Given that the topography is prone to landslides, monsoon is a difficult season for the area.

The ideal time to visit Pabbar Valley

Given the terrain of the area, the best time to visit Pabbar Valley is between March and June throughout the spring and summer. It’s a lovely time to venture outside, go sightseeing, or go hiking through the enthralling terrain because the temperature ranges between a maximum of 24°C and a minimum of 18°C, the skies are clear, and the air is comfortably cool all day.

Due to the abundance of trout and mahseer fish in the River Pabbar, which runs through the valley, this time of year is also a great period for fishing.
