Weather in Munsiyari: March-June is summer season, favorable for people who cannot withstand the winters.  Then June-September is the monsoon season which is not best advised to visit the place as landslides and heavy rain falls can pose a safety threat. November-mid march is the winter season when snow lovers can totally enjoy their stay here.

Where to stay: Munsiyari is a place less visited and less explored. And hence, the hotels reach their optimum capacity in peak season. Its advisable to book the accommodation before hand and not to expect something laden with amenities. Most of them are budget hotels.
