When To Go?

General Guidelines

January - March
Ideal weather for touring in India. The High Himalayas are snowbound but Shimla is popular in late December and January for winter snow.

April - May
The heat starts to build up on India's central and northern plains as temperatures rise. This is however the best time for visiting Shimla and Hill Stations throughout India.

June - July
The South West Monsoon starts in Kerala at the beginning of June and generally arrives in the north by early July. The wildlife reserves close until October (Ranthambhore) or November (Corbett, Kanha, Bandhavgarh).

August - September
The intermonsoon period brings showers but touring is possible dependent on local weather conditions.

October - December
Around October the monsoon ends for most of the country. Pleasant conditions for touring usually last until March. This is when India sees most visitors.

In the thick of winter (around mid-December to mid-January), Delhi, Rajasthan and other northern cities can become surprisingly cold at night.

The Himalayas

Summer in the Himalayas can be great when most other parts of the country are in the grip of the monsoon or the hot season. June is, in fact, the best time to visit the Hill Stations on the Himalayan ranges including Kullu, Manali, Haridwar, Rishikesh, Mussoorie, Badrinath and Darjeeling (West Bengal).

The optimum period to go trekking in Ladakh is May to October. Avoid Ladakh during winter due to extreme weather as the mountains can become inaccessible.


South India, Goa, Kerala And Tamil Nadu

South India becomes uncomfortably hot during April as temperatures soar before the onset of the monsoon. The Western Ghats of Kerala and Hill Stations such as Ooty and Coonoor are however at their best during this period.

The Southwest Monsoon arrives in Southern India starting around the first week of June. The rains bring out lush vegetation and foliage in Kerala through the summer months. Touring is possible after the initial monsoon burst as the intensity of rainfall dies down by July and August.


Beaches Of Goa And Kerala

The beaches of Goa and Kerala are at their best during winter months from October until the end of March.

The Coromandel Coast of Tamil Nadu is the best location for a beach stay during summer months as the Western Ghats shelter the South East Coast from much of the Monsoon. Instead, the short North East Monsoon, brings rain to Tamil Nadu from October to early December.
