When Should You Visit India
Since India represents quite a diverse weather pattern, the best time can’t be actually specified for visiting this country. While the northern corners are inaccessible during the winters, it’s the ideal time for visiting the Deccan. So, here’s your weather guide for planning your next visit to India.
The Himalayan foothills have the distinct seasonal pattern but travel is possible year-round. December and January are the coldest months and the mountains remain inaccessible during this time due to snow and frequent landslides. From June to August, temperatures range from around 13°C (55°F) to 19°C (66°F) and this is the ideal time to visit this area.
If you are planning your next trip to Western India, consider planning an extended holiday from October to March. This is the time when it is relatively dry and temperatures are moderate. Nights can be however chilly from November to February, but the days are warmer & balmy, which makes your trip a pleasant experience. It’s better to avoid a trip during the monsoon that extends from July to September.
Eastern India essentially features a tropical climate with relatively warm weather around the year, but you can’t miss out the distinct hot and humid climatic conditions of the region. However, the ideal time to visit this place is mostly winters (December & January), when the temperature dips down to a comfortable point.
The balmy weather of Southern India is the principal lure for the vacationers across the world. With a pleasant temperature around 24°C most of the time with a few degrees lower at the night, it’s quite obvious that your stay in Southern India will be a pleasant one. Needless to say that the majority of Southern India is pleasant for touring around the year.
The Prime Takeaway
India is land of diversity with attractions galore to explore around the year. Whether you are an adventure freak, a romantic vacationer, a family man or simply a nomadic soul, India is a treasure trove for all. Just make your mind to plunge in and the country will feed your soul to the core.Share this tour
