Generally, the winter months (October to February) are ideal for most parts of the country, offering pleasant weather for exploring cities and historical sites. Spring (March to April) can also be enjoyable before the summer heat sets in. Summer (May to June) can be hot, but hill stations and the southern region offer cooler options. Monsoon season (July to September) is marked by heavy rainfall, with Kerala and the northeastern states standing out for their lush landscapes.
