Q

How cold will it be?

Ans.
 

For Base Camp-
at Ayarpani, on a sunny day it is comfortable especially if you are trekking. You may just need a full sleeves shirt. But if you are in shade then it may be a little cold and a half to full sleeve sweater or a light jacket should suffice.
Evenings can be colder and a jacket or a sweater may be required.

 
 

For Trek Jageshwar-
-Camp 2 should be more or less like Base camp weather
-Camp 3 (Jwalabanj) can be a little colder and you would need a good jacket or a sweater for the night.

 
 

For Trek Bedni

Day time is pleasant but may still need a sweater or light jacket.  Night time is cold and a woolen cap and jacket is advisable if you are in the open after evening.  At Bedni the cold may dip to about 1 or 2 degrees C at night and can be very cold. One may require gloves, muffler, woollen cap and a good warm jacket.

Depending on the month the temperature may dip between 4 and 15degree C at nights.
