Best Time to Visit Delhi

The best time to visit Delhi is between the months of October and March, when the weather is very pleasant and day temperatures remain pleasant and cool ranging between 20 - 30 degrees Celsius.

Delhi comes alive culturally in the winter months with concerts and stage shows being put up every week. Whether it is an art show, theatre performance or musical soiree, Delhi has them all during these months. These are good months to go out sightseeing and being outdoors during the day is a pleasant experience.

During the peak winter in January the temperatures drop drastically especially at night, and the heavy pollution causes a thick fog to envelop the city, so be prepared for flights getting delayed. By February the flowers are in bloom and the city is really quite pretty so it is also the best time to visit Delhi .

Summers are searing hot and dry, so do come prepared for the weather. Temperatures touch the 43 degree C mark and hot dry winds blow through the city. There are not too many events that take place at this time of the year because of the heat and it is best to try and stay indoors, especially in the afternoons during the hot months of May and June.

July sees the advent of the monsoons, bringing the temperatures down and some relief from the summer heat.Unfortunately it gets humid, so the weather is still uncomfortable. This rainy season lasts till End August. September still reels from the humidity, but gives way to cooler evenings.


Delhi is a city of great climatic extremes. Summer, from April till the end of June, is scorching hot with day temperatures rising beyond 45º C. Hot dust-laden winds blowing in from Rajasthan stifle the city. Monsoon showers bring some respite, though in recent years rainfall has become erratic. During the monsoons, which last till the end of September, humidity rises.

Winter stretches from the end of November till March. Temperatures fall substantially down to about 3º C at the height of winter, with nights getting chilly. In January, a dense fog envelopes the city, reducing visibility. Usually though, winter days are pleasant with bright sunlight.
