The autumn season continues from mid-September until November and is a good time for adventure activities and sightseeing.

At this time of year, one must check out the Himalayan Festival hosted by the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts or TIPA in December. 40 minutes away from here, travellers will find Sidhpur where the Norbulinka Institute for Tibetan culture is situated.
