Best Time to Go for Chota Mangwa Tour

There is not a specific time to visit this picturesque location as the astounding beauty of Chota Mangwa can be relished throughout the year but to get a view of the valley covered in orange orchards the best time to visit is during November and December. Monsoon is considered to be the offseason when frequent landslides are seen and because of this, the road toward Mangwa becomes inaccessible.
