The temperature gradually cooling down from the extreme heat of summer presents crisp mornings and evenings and mild afternoons. The mix of cool and warm temperatures is ideal for outdoor activities like trekking and climbing.

    The autumn temperature is favorable for trekking to the base camp and attempting the summit of Pachermo Peak, which is usually mild, with no extreme heat and not too cold. Unlike sweltering summer and freezing winter, the moderate temperature during this time lets you explore the Himalayan regions with ease. However, the higher elevations are colder than lower altitude regions because the temperature declines as we continue to rise to the alpine-Himalayan locations.

The night and early morning temperatures are somewhere between 5 to 10 degrees Celcius (41 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit).

The nighttime temperature in such alpine regions can plummet to -5 to -10 degrees Celcius (23 to 14 degrees Fahrenheit)

    Analyzing these temperature details, you are certain to experience a cozy and comfortable trekking journey in pleasant daytime temperatures. For dropping temperatures in the early morning and night, you can pack layers of warm clothes, and a nice sleeping bag will do well.
