Best Time to Visit Punjab

The best time to visit Punjab is between October and March when the weather is cold and bracing. One can conveniently miss the hot summers and the rainy season.


Punjab spreads from the foothills of the Himalayas in the northeast to a semi-arid desert region towards the southeast. Due to its inland subtropical location, the climate of the state is continental, semiarid to sub humid. As in other parts of India, there are three major seasons in Punjab. Summer, stretching from April till June, is hot and dry with temperatures rising to 45°C. The monsoons from July to September bring rainfall and respite from the searing heat. Annual rainfall varies from about 49 inches (1250 mm) to 14 inches (360mm). Winters, from October till March, are cold with day temperatures falling to 13°C and night temperatures sometimes touching freezing point.
