February heralds the beginning of the hot summer season, but eases it in gently. It’s a great time for you to visit. South India is still not too hot and muggy. The North is just breaking out from its stifling winter and turning its face to the sun. This month also signals the close of the tourist season. All the bags are quickly packed to escape the onslaught of the Indian summer. That means great weather, but not so much of a crowd. It’s holiday season!
Where to go in February
At this time, it’s best if you hit up the beaches along the western coast from Karnataka to Goa to Kerala. They are less likely to be hit by freak showers. You’re safe both from sunburn and frostbite, so get ready to rock that bikini (at an appropriately liberal beach, of course). It’s also a great time for you to tour the deserts of Rajasthan safely. Most of the roads further up north leading into the Himalayas will still be blocked because of the snow.
The best part about February though, is that it’s a great time to go anywhere. If you’ve ever wanted to do a real, in-depth visit to India, now’s the time. Take a month off, pack light and get ready for the holiday of your dreams! You can try some of our routes here and here.
