Rubh' an Dunain is a peninsula on the Isle of Skye near the Glenbrittle village. It is easily accessible via good track. The peninsula itself can be very boggy (good walking boots are essential).

Since the place is easily accessible and the walk is a low level walk it can be done all year round. Sunsets are beautiful in this place. The best weather with the lowest rainfall is usually between April and June.

Once one of the richest and largest cities in India during the prime of Vijayanagar Empire, the ruins is now one of UNESCO heritage sites.

A must visit place , preferably in winter. Summer gets boiling hot and would tire one out soon, especially with the long walks required to properly explore this place. Also, avoid weekends if possible.

Zion is a one of a kind national park. This awe inspiring place has some of the most vivid naturally colored landscapes and mountains i've ever seen.

To escape the heat, spring and fall are the best times for hiking. Sweet Spot Months: The best months with usually good weather and fewer crowds than during peak months are: March/April and October/November. 

Weather Overview

Always keep in mind that the difference between dayime temperatures (see above) and during the night can be 30°F (15°C). In summer, it is oven-like and can get well above 100°F (38°C) and on the other side thunderstorms occur. If you go in the middle of summer avoid long hikes. In the winter snow and ice can be an issue. However, winter is a great time without any crowds and an awesome experience. It's not too cold! Check out this video on YouTube: Zion in Winter Another huge advantage in the winter: Accommodation rates are at their lowest. Check the hotel deals below.

Avoiding Busy Times


Official Zion National Park Visitors 2018/2019

Peak months are June to August. A little less crowded in spring and fall. Very quiet in December, January, February but bear in mind road or trails can be closed. However, you can avoid crowds year-round by starting your hike or exploration right after sunrise. At that time you’ll have the park almost for yourself. Most visitors don’t start before 10 a.m. In the morning there is also a better chance of spotting wildlife and the best light for photos.

From March to October you have to take the shuttle bus, cars are not permitted. Usually, from November to February you can park your car at the available parking lots. The scenic drive in Zion can be closed on weekends in February and shuttle bus transportation has to be taken. Check shuttle bus schedule for each season first, includes maps and hiking trail information.This guide is not complete
