But you must ensure that you start early in the morning at around 5am. This is important because you can have a better grip over the snow-clad land for trekking. If you start late, then the snow would be melted and slippery and you may also encounter avalanches. So the best time you must start to the Pass is early in the morning and completing the journey.
