Climate in India


India is characterised by a hot tropical climate which varies from region to region. The winters fall between November to mid-March and summers from April to June. Northern India remains dry, dusty, and unpleasant during the summer months. The nature of monsoon, which lies between mid-July and September is erratic where some areas experience heavy rains the others experience drought and still others get flooded. Tourists can explore the country in all the seasons but by being selective for certain places during certain part of the year.

The rainy season lies between the month of July and the month of September where monsoon brings with it most of the rain received in this region. Winters present the most desirable season to tour the North India. Nights can be freezing cold so heavy woolens should be brought here.

Western Himalayas

The Western Himalayas offer great opportunities for adventure sports like trekking, hiking, white water rafting, and mountaineering during the summers. During winters, there is heavy snowfall, due to which the area becomes inaccessible but, places like Auli, Manali, and Kufri are famous for skiing.
