Traveling to India this summer?

If you happen to travel to India during this summer [from now till August], consider these:

Areas around Delhi have been affected by an agitation. What it means is that your road and rail travel to Jaipur, Udaipur and other cities in Rajasthan might get upset. So, either fly to these destinations by air or avoid these destinations. The agitation is likely to remain there for another week or more.

There are elections in five states: Assam, West Bengal, Pondicherry, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. So, there will be a lot of electioneering in these states. Moreover, the Election Commission takes charge of many private vehicles for mandatory election duty; this results in local operators' trips getting upset. While elections in other places will be over in April, they will continue through May. You will be wiser if you avoid south [Chennai, temple towns around it, Pondicherry, backwaters and beaches of Kerala].

Monsoon rains are likely to be normal this year, as per very preliminary indications. Rains will be all over Kerala and Andaman & Nicobar Islands starting late April and till May-June. Central and north India will be hot, day temperatures rising even to 45 degrees C [except hills]. It will start raining all over India except Rajasthan in June-August months. It will be sultry and you will have to take precautions against heat, water-logging and disruption in road / rail traffic and tropical infectious diseases. Expect electricity outages if you stay in budget hotels / guest houses, especially in non-metro locations.

Also, do read our earlier take on what precautions you must take whlie planning a trip to India.

Happy journey to India. Take care!
