weather in NORTH INDIA in November

The weather in North India in November is warm during the day, with temperatures dropping in the evenings. In particular, in Rajasthan, the temperatures will slowly drop throughout the month. At the beginning of the month, you can easily face temperatures of 35°C (95°F) in the day. In the evenings, it might end up being less than 10°C (50°F), especially in the desert. You will most likely get no rain at all and blue skies all month. The same applies for other places in the North such as AgraKhajurahoOrchha and Varanasi.

The National Parks reopen in October and are very busy in November, due to the domestic school holidays around Diwali. So try to book safaris way ahead in advance.

Check out our suggestions for two weeks trips in North India here. North India has several great places to choose from, so you have your pick of destinations.

weather in the mountains in November

In the Himalayas, the tourist season usually ends by October due to cold temperatures and difficult weather conditions. In November, many hiking routes and travel connections are likely to be closed. For this reason, we suggest avoiding Ladakh, Kashmir and parts of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand as temperatures can get very low. However, with warm clothes and the right expectations you can still visit Dharamshala and McLeodGanj, Rishikesh and the surrounding mountainous landscapes of Shimla, Manali and other hill stations. Travelling to the Northeast is possible too but it might be even colder.

weather in south India in November

The southeast monsoon mainly hits the east coast of India. It lasts from mid-October to mid-December and brings a lot of rain and storms to Tamil Nadu. Destinations known for their beaches and sightseeing, like Chennai, Mahabalipuram and Pondicherry, are all affected by the rain. Hill stations like Ooty and Chettinad can also get stormy.

Kerala is windward to the monsoon so it might get a little bit of rain too but not as much as in the previous months. The temperatures can range between 18 and 32°C (64-89°F). It gets warmer at the coast and in the plains, and cooler in the mountains of the Western Ghats. Read about the best time to go to Kerala and figure out some interesting travel routes as well.

Goa is one of the best places to visit in India in November. This is when the season finally kicks off with many resorts and restaurants along the beaches re-open. The rates are lower than in December and January and the chances of availability are good. However, Goa gets increasingly popular every year so you might want to book your beachside hut in advance.
