If you wish to avoid crowds and enjoy some alone time with nature then take this trip during winter (Dec, Jan, Feb) could also be an option. However, the temperature during winter could be harsh for most guests. Trekking in the Summer or Monsoon seasons(June to Aug) will be affected by rain but the Summer trek could be a bonus for an extreme botanist.
