INDIAN WEATHER - BEST TIME TO VISIT
Being a large country India has a variance of weather from snowcapped mountains
Desterted sand dunes
The tourist season lasts from October to March. It is a pleasure to visit India
during these cooler months, when the heat of summer is no more. Around this time,
the usually wet areas of Northeast also become dry, making it easier to travel there.
Even the hot South India is blessed with cool weather and rain on beaches in this
peak season for India.
Summer (March to May)
While the summer can be very uncomfortable and draining in most parts of India,
its the perfect time for visiting the mountains and hill stations, such as Manali
and Nainital. The air there is fresh and soothing. If you're into seeing wildlife
and spotting tigers in their natural environment, the summer is also the best time
to visit India's national parks as the animals all come out of the thickets
in search for water in the heat.
Monsoon (June to October)
Its difficult to travel throughout most of India during monsoon time as the rain
often disrupts transport services. However, its the best time to visit popular but
isolated Ladakh in the far north, as the roads leading there dont clear of snow
and open up until June. This is just one of many great destinations for monsoon
travel in India.
Winter (November to February)
The winter season is the time to hit the beaches in India, and many people flock
to relax and party on the long strip of beaches in Goa. India's far south is
also best enjoyed in winter, with December to February being the only really good
months to travel there. The rest of the time its either uncomfortably hot and humid,
or wet. Apparently, it rains for an astonishing nine months of the year in the state
of Kerala! It's also a good idea to travel to the desert state of Rajasthan
during the winter, to avoid the searing summer temperatures. Unless you want to
go skiing (which is possible in India!), anywhere around the Himalaya mountains
should be avoided in winter because of the snow. It can be very beautiful to see
