The best times to visit India
India is a gigantic country with climatic differences between the major regions and it is possible to visit it practically throughout the year.
The Indian climate is strongly influenced by the Himalayas and Thar Desert, which drives the monsoons. The Himalayas brake the cold winds of central Asia, keeping most of the subcontinent at a higher temperature than regions at similar latitudes. Thar desert plays a key role in attracting the summer monsoon winds, with a high humidity level, between June and October, which provides most of the rains during the year. Four major climatic clusters prevail in the country: wet tropical, dry tropical, wet subtropical, and mountainous.
India is the seventh country by geographic extent in the world and it is wet by the Indian Ocean to the south, from the Arabian Sea to the west and from the Gulf of Bengal to the east. It has a coast line that stretches for 7.517 km.
For these reasons, India has a wide range of climatic and meteorological conditions, strongly influenced both by geographic scale and by topographical variety. India hosts six major climate subtypes, ranging from the desert to the west, alpine and glaciers to the north, wet tropical and dry tropical regions of the southwest and the islands, the subtropical, the arid. From here, a whole series of regional microclimate is grafted. The subcontinent has four seasons: winter (January and February), summer (March to May), monsoon season (June to September), and a post-monsoon period (October-December).
Geological and geological uniqueness of India strongly influences the climate; This is particularly true of the Himalayas and Hindu Kush Mountains acting as a hindrance to cold winds coming from Central Asia. This helps keep temperatures higher than regions at the same latitudes. Therefore, even though the Cancer Tropic passes through the center of India, the entire country is tended to be tropical. At the same time, the Thar Desert plays an important role in attracting the moisture of winds that spin from the southwest loads of the summer monsoon, which supply most of the precipitation between June and October.
The best season to go to India is winter, which runs from November to March. However, given that India is a giant country, climate differences between the regions are considerable. In December and January, for example, it can be very cold in the North. The south-east coast and the south of the country are targeted by heavy rains from October until early December. Then you have to adjust your departure dates according to the region you plan to visit; In any case avoids the monies that last forever from May to October throughout the country.
