Travel Tips to India Best time to Visit India India is vast in size and therefore has a wide range of climate and weather patterns across the country. Most of India has tropical weather and contains three major seasons: summer, winter and monsoon (rainy season). Summers get very hot, so the winter months are a more favorable time to visit most places in India. The best time to visit Delhi and surrounding is during the winter, between October and March as it tends to be dry and have moderate temperatures. Summer (May and June) will have very hot weather but if you must visit during that time we recommend tours to be done early morning or late evening. July through September is monsoon season that includes heavy humidity and heavy rains in July and August. Passport and Visa Requirements You need a valid Canadian or American Passport.
