November's weather in detail

Kashmir & Himalayas

November is a great time of year to visit Shimla, Manali, Srinagar and Dharamsala and the rest of Himalayan India. With hardly a cloud in the sky and pleasantly warm temperatures in the mid-20’s the weather is ideal for trekking and exploring. Towards the end of the month temperatures begin to drop as winter starts to arrive.

Kerala, Goa & the South

The weather in southern India in November is generally good. You're bound to experience some rain in Tamil Nadu, but the cooler temperatures make November a good month for cultural exploration. In Kerala and Goa, the days are sunny and hot, ideal for lazing on the beach. It's also a great time of year to trek around the hill stations of the Western Ghat mountains with cool temperatures and lush greenery.

Mumbai & central India

November is a great time to visit central India. There's hardly a cloud in the sky and you'll experience hot sunny weather with temperatures in the low-30’s. It's perfect weather for exploring cultural cities like Nagpur or hunting for tigers in Bandhavgarh National Park. Culture creatures should time their trip to coincide with the Hindu festival of Light, Diwali.

Rajasthan & the Golden Triangle

November is a great time to visit Rajasthan and the Golden Triangle. With hardly a cloud in the sky and pleasantly warm temperatures in the mid-20’s you can explore the ornate ancient temples or watch the rare wildlife in ideal conditions.
