7 Preparing for Travelling
The ideal time to visit India is during the winter season, which is from December to early March. From April on, the entire nation typically experiences extreme heat, and most places at least see the summer monsoon in June, July, August, and September.
Given that India is a vast nation with a variety of climates, we've put up a guide on the best time to visit some of its most well-known locations.
A). When is the best time to visit the Indian Himalayas?
Visit the entirety of the Indian Himalayan between November and February, which is the driest season. January and February, however, are particularly cold at higher altitudes. The summer monsoon brings heavy rainfall in summer in eastern Himalayan places like Gangtok. Avoid these parts of the Himalayas, including Darjeeling, in summer.
B). When is the best time to visit Goa?
Goa state is popular for its beaches and easy-going vibe. The monsoon arrives in late May up to September, bringing very, very intense rainfall, so avoid visiting during this period.
The perfect time to visit Goa is January and February, when the weather is warm, with an average maximum of 32°C/90°F and the sun is shining bright.
March, April and November are part of the dry season and can get rather warm but with the risk of cyclones.
C). When is the best time to visit Delhi?
Delhi has a subtropical climate with a moderate, sunny winter, an incredibly hot early summer, and a wet, humid monsoon season in the late summer.
The ideal time to travel to Delhi is between November and February to avoid the monsoon season rains from July to September and the stifling heat from March to June. The Taj Mahal is situated in Agra, which has a similar climate.
D). When is the best time to visit Kolkata?
The ideal time to travel to Kolkata is during the dry winter from mid-December to February. Temperatures in these areas increase from March, with intense heat, while the monsoon rains arrive towards the end of May.
There is an increased chance of cyclones, tropical storms and flooding from October to November.
E). When is the best time to visit Mumbai?
January to February is the most suitable time to visit Mumbai. The weather is usually dry but not too hot.
The weather is often dry in April and May also, though it can get very hot. The worst of the monsoonal rains occur in June, July, August, and September, but cyclones are still probable in November and December.
F). When is the best time to visit Rajasthan?
Rajasthan, with attractions like Jaipur and Ranthambore National Park, is most enjoyable in December, January and February.
If you are travelling to India at a different time of the year, you can still visit Rajasthan, as the monsoon has a smaller impact here.
G). When is the best time to visit Kerala?
There is light but longer rains from April to November in southern Kerala in Thiruvananthapuram, formerly Trivandrum. It's dry and warm from late November to late March.
H). When is the best time to visit Varanasi?
The ideal time to tour Varanasi is from November to early March, after which the heat intensifies. Extreme heat waves occur in April, May, and June, while the moon appears in July and lasts until late September.
