about the climate of India? When can I visit India?
India has a tropical climate. Summers, April to July, are quite hot in
the northern India. Monsoon, last week of June to August, brings with it
a lot of rain mainly in most parts of the country. Winters, third week
of September to end of February is quite cold in entire Northern India,
but mild in the Southern Peninsula.
There are large climatic
variations in India due to its size and difference in the altitude and
nearness to sea of the places. While some parts of Himalayas are quite
enjoyable during the summers, North India reels under the blazing sun.
In fact, India is a destination for every season. Himalayan ranges in
the summers, North India in the winter, and Southern Peninsula
throughout the year.
