Do you find that the long, cold and boring winter months in Britain are getting you down?
Then why not take a jaunt to the other side of the old Commonwealth?
In comparison to the long winters of Britain, India has wonderful warm months at the same time. Now you can avoid sitting around in the cold, wasting valuable money on heating bills. You can jet off to a wonderful part of the world, experience an immense culture, and enjoy the heat.
With an average temperature of 32 degrees C during our own winter, this makes a marked difference.
For those who really enjoy the sun, the best months are anytime during October to March. This time of year it is usually rain free with long sunny days, the humidity can be high on the coast in the south, but the hills are cooler and green rich with forests and tea plantations.
The Best Times
The north has a temperate climate and their winter is at the same time as our winter,therefore the months of October, November, February and March are the most pleasant. Just as our own horrible weather kicks in here the best kicks in over there. Not only does this make it easier to enjoy the beauty of winter, but it adds a nice layer of change to what we are all used to.
Just remember that during December and January Delhi experiences some foggy weather, and sometimes cold weather too. If you want to enjoy the sun all the time, then focus your visit on the south.
November and December is the post-Monsoon season. This gives you stunning landscapes and a world that looks luscious and green. If you are looking to enjoy escaping the British winter, come here during these months.
Central Indian Visits
Looking to go avoid the tourist hot spots of Agra and Jaipur, then discover un-spoilt Rajasthan offering hot and dry weather during the winter. During the summer months India is affected by monsoons.
The south is far greener than the north due to the amount of rainfall, twice a year it is drenched by monsoons firstly from the southwest in June/ July, then from the north east in October / November. The driest months are December/ March with an average temperature of 31C, the cooler temperature in the Western Ghats provides a refreshing contrast to the humid coastal region.
These are probably the most interesting parts of India that you should come and visit. Each is going to give you a really interesting take on this wonderful part of the world, with many festivals taking place throughout the year, India can be a fascinating place to come, but even more when you escape the dreary weather back home!
