Best Time To Avail A Varanasi Holiday Package

The best time to plan a visit to Varanasi is considered to be from October to March. Winters in the North are relatively pleasant than the summers. Moreover, there prevails a cheerful breeze all day round in Varanasi which is ideal for a super fun sightseeing tour. It is best to not visit Varanasi as the scorching heat makes it really difficult to explore the temples and other attractions in the city.

Housing a wide array of surprises in store for the vacationers, Kashi Vishwanath Temple, Dashashwamedh Ghat, Assi Ghat, Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple, Tulsi Manas Temple and Durga Temple are some of the tourist attractions that will certainly sweep the vacationers off their feet. Let’s focus on the month-wise weather details of Varanasi:

November to February

The winter season which begins from November and lasts till February is definitely the best time to visit the divine ghats of Varanasi, owing to its location in Uttar Pradesh in the north. The winter sun when shines on the surface of Ganga, looks very pleasing to the eyes. The temples, forts and ghats can be best enjoyed during the winter season when the temperature remains between 5 to 15 degree Celsius.

March to June

It might be a difficult task to explore Varanasi in the scorching heat of the summer season. May and June are the hottest months with temperature rising to even 50 degree Celsius. The evenings can be comparatively comfortable but afternoons are really tough to tackle. Hence, one should avoid visiting Varanasi during the summer season, unless and until looking for really cheap hotel prices.

July to September

Beginning of July brings rainfall in Varanasi which continues till September. The weather becomes pleasant, however, rains might cause a hindrance in your sightseeing plans. The flow of river Ganga is great during the monsoon season and sitting on the ghat in pleasant weather is a bliss in itself. Hotel rates are also cheap compared to that of winter.
