Best Time to Visit

best time to visit in India

When you are planning to visit a destination in India, you should consider the weather. You cannot just visit a destination at any time of the year. This is because the weather differs from destination to destination. The weather in a destination might be scorching hot and the weather in a different destination might be pleasant at the same time of the year. This is possible as different destinations in India are located in different altitudes and zones. Stay with us as we try to help our readers in selecting the best time to visit a particular destination in India through this blog.

Summer season (March to May)

The months from March to May are the time of the scorching summer season. This is the best time to visit the hill stations of the Himalayas and Southern India. You can also plan a trip to the islands like Lakshadweep Islands and Andaman Islands. You can see greenery everywhere and do most outdoor activities during the summer season. The sun is hot during this time, but in higher altitudes, it is not so hot. So it is a good time to travel and do sightseeing, shopping, and adventure activities.

Monsoon season (June to September)

You should visit some special destinations in India if you want to see the magic of monsoons. Hill stations in the Western Ghats such as Kodaikanal, Mahabaleshwar, Matheran, and Coorg are the best places to visit during the monsoons. There are other places too like Shillong, Pondicherry, and Goa which you must visit during the monsoons. Monsoon is also the time when the pilgrimage season starts. Char Dham Yatra and Amarnath Yatra are the best pilgrimage journeys that happen during the monsoon time.

Winter season (December – February)

When it is winter time between December and February you must visit the Uttarakhand hill stations. This is also the best time to visit the holy temples and cities such as Varanasi, Haridwar, Nashik, Puri etc. But we can certainly suggest you visit Rajasthan during the winter season. Jaipur, Jaisalmer, and Udaipur are the best cities to visit in Rajasthan. Winter time is also the time when cultural festivals take place in Rajasthan and some of them are Kutch Ranotsav, Jaisalmer Desert Festival, and Hornbill Festival are some popular festivals you should visit in the winter months.
