What is the best time to spend holidays in India?
The answer to this question is rather difficult to answer. Given the fact that India exhibits such diversity in terms of climates and weather conditions, not to mention the thousands of tourists flocking the country round the clock, it becomes all the more difficult to pin-point the peak season for India travel. Each season has its own extremities and pleasant times. On one hand the southern tip of India is being lashed by tropical monsoon rain, while on the other hand the north will be blanketed in thick snow. Therefore, the best time to travel to India depends greatly on the destinations to be visited and the climate experienced there.
Indian weather itself is divided into three distinct seasons — winter, summer, and the monsoon.
India starts heating up from around February. The months of April to June are usually scorching hot with the heat getting unbearable at times. Yet tourists throng India and visit the hill stations where it is relatively cooler and much more scenic. June marks the onset of rains in most parts of the country which is very refreshing for the adventurous folks. The disappearance of the monsoon marks the start of clear sunny skies, as well as the start of the tourist season, for most of India. Daytime winter temperatures are comfortable, although often quite chilly at night. In the south, it never gets cold. This is in complete contrast to the freezing temperatures experienced in India’s far north, around the Himalaya region.
Most of the tourists prefer to spend their holidays during this time especially from the months of September to March, when the weather is pretty pleasant and perfect to roam around. Moreover, it is also a peak time for most of Indian Festivals like Pushkar Mela, Diwali, Dassera, Navratri, Durga puja among the more popular ones. It is advisable to do some proper homework on these festivals as some may find the chaos and crowd rather overwhelming. What’s more, Club Mahindra Group over the last decade has established themselves as market leaders in the family holidays business. With its endeavour of making holidays enjoyable, it offers a variety of holidaying options through its bouquet of resorts across the length and breadth of India. There are activities designed specifically to cater to all ages.
In simple words, if you have already made up your mind to enjoy your holidays in India, don’t give it a second thought. Just step out and explore. There’s something or the other for everyone.
