Best Season to Travel:
It is recommended to visit the grassland during May-September and among which June-September is considered the best time for visits since it’s during summer time. During Jun-Sep, the weather on the grassland is comfortable, which makes it an ideal place to be away from hot summer. Oct-Apr the next year is the low season for the tourism in the grassland, when the weather is comparatively cold and the view on the grassland is not as good.
