Weather remains salubrious and pleasing during summers. Serenity and solitude are at its best during winters at Chopta. The region is blessed with snowfall during winters and the accommodation options also remain few. But you can see the best of Chopta during winters as it looks like mini Switzerland during winters. Winters are freezing.
