Rishikesh is settled on the foothills of the Himalayas the weather is usually pleasant throughout the year.

Summers remain from March to June, featuring a maximum temperature of 35 degree celsius, however, these months are the best for white water rafting and various other water sports.

Monsoon is not a very good time for water sports, the water level rises and brings high current making water rafting impossible. Normally, monsoon offer common rainfall during July to September.

Winters are the best time for sightseeing, with the mountains covered in thick snow. The weather is very pleasant and the temperature ranges from 19 degree celsius to 27 degree celsius.

The best time to visit starts from mid September till April, these months are considered to be the peak tourist months in Rishikesh. Months like May, June and July are better avoided due to the heat and rain. However, if white river rafting is on your mind, you could visit Rishikesh during summer months between March and June, and escape the heat while you splash away. Between February and March the city offers the delight of the Basant Panchami, the Spring festival that is celebrated with much enthusiasm in Rishikesh.
