Best time to visit Thrumshingla National Park

The best times to visit Thrumshingla National Park are regarded as the autumn season from October to November when the weather is pleasant and the trekking route is dry, and the late spring season from April to June, when rhododendron cover the entrance to the national park with a soft shade of red. If visitors are not up for a strenuous hike, it is better to stay away from the national park because the trails become slick and to prevent parasites that feed on human blood like leeches and mosquitoes.
