One of the most beautiful seasons in India, this is the time to see all its shades displayed in their splendour. The landscapes are verdant, dotted with blooms of innumerable hues, and life seems to spurt uninterrupted in the many forests in the country. The weather remains pleasant, with the upper limit of the temperatures resting at around 32 °C in most parts of the country.
Summer is the perfect time to explore the country as many of its remote destinations open up during this period. It is the season of colours, delicious fruits and vibrant festivals. It is one of the best times to venture in to India's national parks and wildlife sanctuaries, try water adventure sports, indulge in luxurious camping, etc. The average temperature is 38°C in most parts of the country.
Monsoons come as a harbinger of life and greenery after the heat of late summer. Waterfalls flow in all their glory, temperatures dip towards pleasant and everything is doused with freshness. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Western Ghats becomes a paradise during the rains.
Autumn or Fall is a beautiful time in India. The weather remains pleasant and the opportunity is ripe to explore the hotter parts of India, which become much cooler during this period. The weather is clearer and mountainous regions are cool and warm enough to enjoy a nice vacation
Winters in India are a time to rejoice and indulge. The hilly regions are carpeted with a thick layer of snow, perfect for adventure sports. Meanwhile, the southern part of the country is relatively warmer, making the weather ideal for a vacation in the colourful cities of Kerala, Tamil Nadu, etc.
Go for Cooler Climes: Some parts of India get much hotter than others during summer. It is important to pick the right destination. Mountains and wildlife sanctuaries are some of the best choices.
Clothing: Opt for cotton or linen clothes that fit loosely and comfortably. Accessorise with hats, sunglasses and umbrellas.
Wear a Sunscreen: It is a must to wear sunscreen while travelling in India during summer. Even if you are exploring the mountains, the thin air will guarantee that you get the hot blaze of sunlight.
Hydration: Carry bottled water with you at all times. Summer is the time for some of India's best fruits, and several vendors and stores offer chilled traditional drinks, juices and other beverages that you can relish.
Carry an umbrella: Monsoon showers in India can be unpredictable and sudden, so carry an umbrella/ raincoat with you at all times.
Synthetic Clothes: Pack more synthetic clothes for your vacation, as they tend to dry faster than cotton.
Check the weather forecast: Always check the weather forecast of your destination before finalising it.
Cover your phones: Make sure that all your electronic and money are covered in water-proof bags.
Footwear: Opt for sandals and floaters rather than leather as the latter may get ruined in the rain.
Thermals and Sweaters: It can get pretty cold in India, especially in the northern frontiers, so make sure you carry your thermals and sweaters.
Jackets: Jackets are a great choice as they add a layer of insulation to your sweaters.
Woollen gloves and socks: Don't forget your gloves and socks if you are planning to travel to the mountains.
Boots/Shoes: A pair of good-quality shoes is essential for a winter vacation in India.
Scarves/Caps: Don't let the cold get to your vulnerable parts like the neck and ears.
Medicines: Carry your prescriptions or first-aid kit with you as you travel.
Sunglasses: If you are travelling to higher altitudes, make sure to grab your sunglasses as the snow reflects UV light that harm your eyes.
Valley of Flowers, Uttarakhand: With the majestic Zanskar range in the backdrop, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Valley of Flowers lies at an impressive altitude of around 11,000 ft. Resembling an artist's canvas, the valley is like a flood of colourful hues in spring, held together by snowy mountain peaks and white glaciers.

The huge complex consists of memorials, baths, shrines, temples and enormous boulders scattered all around. This magnetic city is like a leaf from history's book.
Ahmedabad: Dussehra festivities in Ahmedabad are popular all over the country. With vibrant dishes, colourful folk dances and an atmosphere of merry-making, there's much to do in fall here.
