Ice Climbing season runs from late December to late February as conditions allow. We traditionally experience more settled weather till mid January. Spiti has a dry and cold climate with day time temperatures falling upto -15 to -30 degrees with ample sunshine on most days making the cold fairly bearable with the right layers. However, due to the higher altitude of 3,800 metres and windy weather pattern, the cold may be felt more severely on some days, especially to folks who have less tolerance to cold.
We highly recommend carrying adequate layers for the festival details of which have been provided in the gear section.
