-17 Degree Celcius in Manali

Hi,

We are planning to visit Manali between Dec 22nd to Dec 26th. All our bags were packed and we were ready to go, but saw the latest weather update in Manali. The minimum temperature is -17 Deg Celcius and Max is -4 Degrees! We were expecting minimum to be -4 Deg only.

Could anyone please tell us if it is abnormally cold this year or if this is the same every year. Also if there are any precautions to be taken against this sort of weather.

Thanks,

James

It is not that much cold. This must be shown by accuweather. :)

The night temp may be in minus but not -17. Keep heavy woolens, caps, mufflers, gloves & boots. When i go, i usually take some RUM, as it helps in getting over in extreme cold. One of our female friend had vomiting & shivering from extreme cold at rohtang but RUM saved her.

In Manali, yesterday it was 15-16 °C in day time and 0 °C at night. But before that minimum temp was around 2-3 °C for the last few days. If rain comes then only the temp will drop further. But that will never be lower than Minus 4 °C in Dec.

RUM is a distilled alcoholic beverage made from sugarcane byproducts, such as molasses, or directly from sugarcane juice, by a process of fermentation and distillation. The distillate, a clear liquid, is then usually aged in oak barrels. It will help incase of severe cold. :)
