The best time to visit India depends on the state you want to travel to.

  • Winter (October to March): Winters are pleasant and ideal for sightseeing, especially in northern and central India. This is the best time to visit popular destinations like Delhi, Rajasthan, and Kerala.

  • Summer (April to June): Summers are hot, particularly in the northern and central parts. Hill stations like Shimla and Manali offer a cool escape from the heat.

  • Monsoon (July to September): Monsoons bring heavy rainfall, turning the landscape into a lush, green paradise, especially in the south and northeast. It’s a great time to experience the lush greenery and enjoy off-season travel deals.

India is generally safe – if you take the necessary precautions. Avoid isolated areas, especially at night, and be cautious of your belongings to prevent petty theft. Stick to well-known tourist destinations and be aware of local customs and laws. Female solo travelers should consider additional safety measures, such as dressing modestly and avoiding traveling alone at night.

There are some places in India that even Indians avoid, that are considered really unsafe for women, so avoid going to such areas.
