Best time to visit India

India is an all-season destination

India is a sub-continent in which there will be some places in all times of the year where the weather will of your liking. In most parts of India, there are distinct summer, rainy and winter seasons: summers from May to July, rains from June to September, winter from November to February.

In general, the transitional months of March-April [transiting from winter to summer] and September-October-November [from rainy season to winter] are cool and dry and are preferred by travelers and tourists. However, during October, there are a number of festivals and there is heavy domestic traffic.

The Himalayan hills are cool during summers and very cold during winters. Rains bring surreal experience of moving fog, rain-time streams and waterfalls, colourful clouds, greenery... but many places become inaccessible by road due to landslides.

Northern plains are dry and hot during summers, very cold in winters and have scanty to fair amount of rains during the rainy season. Generally rains are not an issue but when it rains, life goes out of sync. Deserts in north-west India get too hot and too cold for comfort.

As you go south of centre, rains become more and more copious. Weather is pleasant in winters and it remains sultry and hot in the rest part of the year. Coastal areas on the western coast are very wet. Eastern coast is wet during September-October also.

That was about climate. Irrespective of that, India offers natural beauty in various hues: higher reaches of the Himalayas are always astounding in their majesty; many beaches are anybody's delight, especially in the remote Andaman & Nicobar Islands and in Kerala and Karnataka coasts; there are numerous wild life sanctuaries, some with rare animals, and they are usually at their best during winters.

India  is always buzzing with festivals. Festivals and fairs generally  occur during harvest season: March-April and October-November. Besides, there are huge congregations, a la carnivals, during kumbh, Jagannath yatra and dashera. These happen on auspicious days by lunar calendar.

Change of season that brings so much gaiety, however, also brings chance of infectious diseases. September to early November days see outbreak of dengue and other types of viral fevers. Rainy season is likely to get you fever and tummy upset if you are not careful.

So, if you plan in advance and according to your taste [and once in India, you take care not to get ailments], you can enjoy any time of the year.
