  1. Peak Season

    December to March

    Over the peak months (from December through March) visitors will enjoy pleasant temperatures without the searing heat in the middle of the year and cool evenings for a reprieve from the sun.  Keep in mind that India is a gigantic country, and the weather will vary greatly between the north and south. Over the peak season, prices will be high however you will also be treated to a number of festivals. From Carnival in Goa through February, to Taj Mahotsav in Agra (a ten-day cultural and arts festival) to, of course, the Hindu Holi Festival in March will show much to impress visitors.

  2. Low Season

    April to June

    A note to all travellers: do not travel in India during this time if you do not fare well in the heat. The temperatures will be at their highest which can make visiting outdoor temples and monuments quite exhausting. In addition to the rising temperatures, it will is likely to be raining in most parts of the country with monsoon season well and truly in full swing. If you’re hoping for a break to escape the rain, a visit to Ladakh would be ideal. Travellers should also note that Ramadan will take place during May (timing will vary each year) and you might want to plan your travels accordingly as this involves daily fasting.
