Autumn is the time when the monsoon rain stops drizzling, the surrounding starts to be greener than ever, the views of landscape, sunrise, sunset and Himalayas become more clearer than any other time of the year and great chance to observe Himalayan faunas at lower elevations as they will be grazing at lowlands during this time of the year.
