Best Time to Visit India

We’re often asked when the best time to visit India is and, the honest is answer is that there isn’t a best time to visit. It really depends on what you are wanting to see and do, but as a country with extreme climates, it’s imperative we get it right for you.

Best time to visit

For most of the country the best time to visit is between October and March, when you can expect the weather to be drier, warmer and sunnier. Through this time, clear blue skies are typically on the menu, but it is worth bearing in mind that in regions such as Rajasthan, December and January are much cooler with potential fog, particularly in the early morning and evenings. As you pass through into April and May, the humidity and chance of thundery rainfall increases, but holidays in these months tend to offer excellent value for money. If you are keen to travel to India between June and September, then we would recommend exploring the foothills of the Himalayas, such as Ladakh, where clear skies and temperate conditions can be expected. This is in stark contrast to the rest of the country where the monsoon rolls in, which we would also strongly advise avoiding. For India’s southern states, November onwards is when you want to visit once the monsoon and humidity has subsided.
