October to May
We begin bouldering and climbing courses after the monsoons around the last two weeks of October and conclude the season when it gets very hot around May. Needless to say, winter months between November and February are the best for climbing. That’s the time when the moss dries up on the rocks, the days are cool, the mornings are crispy dry and gently cold. Its great to get out, even if you are not climbing.
