I know that you want to explore Haridwar at the earliest but there has to be something which has to be kept in mind before planning a trip to the place. That is it's weather. If that does not agree with your temperament, you will not only curse the place, you will also ruin the experience for so many around you. So, to avoid that, I give you the weather guide for the place.

The climate of Haridwar is basically temperate all through the year which is good news for some and bad for the others. But let's see what are the seasons like.

  • Summer

    The season that goes on from March to May experiences a heat band of 15°C to 40°C. Although, this might be hot for some, this is still the best time to experience some of the most extravagant festivals such as
    Ramnavmi and Buddha Purnima.

  • Winter

    The winter season starts from the month of October and goes up till February. The weather is a little chilly with a minimum night temperature of about 6°C. However, temperature during the day never goes up more than 17°C that makes the season very pleasant to travel and really explore. You must be wondering what festival is celebrated during this time, well, it is
    Karthik Poornima that is celebrated in the month of November.

  • Monsoon

    The season of Monsoon starts from June and goes up till September. The season receives moderate amount of rainfall during which humidity increases. During this time, Haridwar celebrates many religious festivals such as
    Kanwar Mela celebrated in the month of July and Diwali celebrated in October. However, monsoon can be a difficult time to travel as there are roadblocks during the season. Hence, August is not the best month to plan your trip to Haridwar.

Now, you must be wondering after all this, what is actually the best time to visit. So, here it is. The best time to travel to this religious place is during the months of November to March. The weather is pleasant and so is going to be your trip. So, go enjoy!

However, it is equally pleasant to visit from mid October as well..But the last week of October and then onwards bring out the best of Haridwar. I visited twice in the last week of October and found it awesome.Specially, the mornings around 4 am is a treat.
