Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Rajasthan is known as the desert state. It is largely hot and dry throughout the year, making it a great destination to get away from European winters.
Summer in Rajasthan extends from April to June. It is the hottest season, with temperatures ranging from 32°C to 45°C, so not ideal for travel, although early April is a good time to get cheaper rates if you don't mind the temperature in the high 30°Cs. In western Rajasthan the temperature may reach at high as 45°C, particularly in May and June so we'd suggest avoiding Jaisalmer and the Thar Desert at this time. The second season - technically the "Monsoon" (although in reality Rajasthan never receives much rainfall) extends from July to September. The temperature drops slightly, and humidity increases. 90% of the rain Rajasthan can expect occurs during this period. Lakes and rivers will be higher from mountain run-off and flowers and grasses come to life, bringing added color to the landscape. The Post-monsoon period is from October to November. The average maximum temperature is 33°C to 38°C, and the minimum is between 18°C and 20°C. The official "season" for hotels in Rajasthan starts in October. It’s a great time to travel - warm and sunny during and perfect for exploring and relaxing. The fourth season is "winter", and runs from December to March. With day time temperatures still in the high 20°Cs during the day this a very popular time to travel. Hotels are at the their busiest over the Christmas and new year period. Be aware though that December and January can have very cool mornings and evening and we suggest taking some warm clothing. Whilst temperatures in the desert areas are always hot in the daytime, they become some of the coolest areas of the state once the sun goes down. It’s also fairly standard to expect some fog in the major cities of northern Rajasthan and Delhi in December and January.
