The study was proposed to examine the effect of circannual rhythm (seasonal changes) on selected physiological variables among men college students. In order to satisfy the purpose 120 male college students were randomly selected from the 4 different colleges located at 4 different altitude levels of Kashmir valley.

All the tests were took place in between the four seasons. The stadiometer and weighing machine was used for obtaining the Body Mass Index (B.M.I) and the skin fold caliper was used for obtaining the Percent Body Fat. The collected data was analyzed by analysis of variance (ANOVA) and Scheffe’s post hoc test. In conclusion the present study shows that significant reduction was found in body mass index (B.M.I) and Percent body Fat of subjects from different colleges of different altitude levels.
