The Best Time to Visit India

Posted by

India is a country with a unique culture with many interesting customs and habits, and especially Indian people are very hospitable. If you are planning to travel to India, let’s explore the best time to visit India!

Indian weather and climate are divided into 3 main seasons: winter, summer and rainy season. The weather here has changed significantly between regions while South India is in the rainy season of tropical monsoon weather, the North is covered with cold snow.

Summer (from March to May)

This is the season in which the Indian weather is quite hot and uncomfortable. Partly because Indian weather doesn’t change much from day to night. Therefore, it may be sunny and dry all day.

In April, many places have temperatures up to 40 degrees C. By the end of May, the rainy season starts with high humidity and thunderstorms begin to appear with dust. This will greatly affect the trip if you travel around this time.

Rainy season (from June to October) 

India has two rainy seasons: the southwest and northeast monsoon.

The rainy season in the Southwest is the main rainy season. It comes from the sea and starts from the west coast of India from next month. In mid-July, the entire region was covered with rain.

After that, it will pass in southwestern India in October. The Northeast monsoon season affects India’s east coast during the end of October to December.

The rainy season is really troublesome affecting tourists and the people here. Dealing with the rainy season is not easy because it can destroy crops on a large scale and very quickly.

Winter (from December to February next year)

The Indian climate in the east is generally very cool, pleasant, though a bit cold at night.

A note to you is that in southern India the weather will never be cold, in contrast to the chill of the far north, around the Himalayan mountains. Please note this when choosing a tourist destination in India.

The most suitable time for Indian travel is winter from December to February next year. At this time, cool weather and pleasant climate will be suitable for you to comfortably explore this unique cultural land.
