Now after such careful planning, you wouldn't want the season or bad weather to be the undoing of your trip. Being a coast city, Pondicherry isn't an ideal vacation destination year round. Let's have a look at what Pondicherry is like in different seasons:

  • Summer

With temperature touching 40 degrees, Pondicherry is at its hottest from March to June. Couple this with intense humidity and summer becomes the season to not visit Pondicherry.

  • Monsoon

Rains arrive soon after; July, August and September are pleasant mainly because the heat and humidity are relieved by the showers of the monsoons. Though the weather becomes really pleasant, August may not be so conducive to outdoor sightseeing and travels due to heavy showers. Its in September, that the heavy showers subside to light drizzles, making it the time to begin planning your trip to Pondicherry.

  • Winters

Day temperatures around 30° C and pleasant cool evenings, make winter the perfect time to visit Pondicherry. It is the time when you can go on day long sightseeing and indulge in beach activities like volleyball and water sports like water skiing. Importantly, December and January is when Christmas and New Year is celebrated by locals with great festivity. These are also the months when Sri Aurobindo Ashram becomes really busy because of the birth and death anniversaries of Sri Aurobindo and Mother.

It appears that September to March are the months when Pondicherry is the ideal destination spot. Mark the spot in your calendar and get ready for an incredible vacation.
