The seasons vary a lot in India, depending on your geographical location. Southern India tends to be very hot, and experiences massive deluges during the monsoon season from June to August. Northern India is comparatively cool because of its proximity to the Himalaya. The best period to travel in India is from October to January. The temperature is bearable, and the rain is infrequent. Of course the monsoon is an experience in itself, so if you fancy getting seeing India at it’s most humid, aim to travel in July.
That’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed the lesson.
