Best Time to Visit New Delhi

Peak Season is from October to March. During October, the days are warm and dry, and towards the end of the month the evenings start getting chilly, making way for the winters.

Shoulder Season: June to September usher in the monsoons to Delhi. And while the rainfall brings down the temperatures, the frequency of standstill traffic on the roads increase.  

Off-season: May to August are the months when the tourists start thinning out. Henceforth, the accommodation costs reduce and though the weather is hot and humid, it’s the ideal time to explore the city away from the chaotic crowds.
