    India is a large country with a huge range of varying climates - it is tropical in the South and alpine in the North in the Himalayas. The following information is specific to the region of this tour (Delhi, Rajasthan and Agra).

    In the winter months the temperatures range from 22°C to 5°C and can be quite cold in the early mornings so good to pack layers.

    The summer can be very hot and spicy. In North India from mid April to mid May the temperatures can be in the late 30’s to early 40’s with pleasant and slightly cool mornings (especially in wildlife parks). From mid May to mid June the days are hot with temperatures in the mid 40s. July and August are the rainy months and so whilst the rain can bring the temperatures down, some days can be very humid. In September the rains are on and off and the weather starts to cool. April is considered a shoulder months of the hot season and can be a great time to travel.

    All the cars have air conditioning as do all the rooms. Hats caps, umbrellas and sunglasses help a lot. Of course weather being weather may have its own ideas so the above is only a guideline - always best to be prepared for all eventualities!

    Please note: The safari parks are closed during the hot summer months from June - September

    Monsoon season: July to September.

    Dry season: April to June.

    Peak season: The end of December and into February is peak season for travel in India.

    October to April is a popular time for visitors’ due to the milder and cool climate. There are some tours to the North of India that we do not run in the summer time due to the sizzling weather in the dry areas such as Rajasthan.

    Diwali and Holi are festivals in India and during this time places are more likely to be crowded and accommodation fills up quickly. Diwali falls in October and is the festival of lights. Holi is also known as the Festival of Colours and is celebrated in March. Whilst crowded, it can be a great time to enjoy the festivities with the locals. 

    Travelbay tip: Ask the local guides about the best places to dine.
