Best Time To Visit Karnataka

Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination

October through April is the best time to visit Karnataka and South India. Owing to the location of the state in South India, the climate of Karnataka remains on the warmer side throughout the year. Winters are mild, summer are hot and humid, and monsoon arrives early in Karnataka. The best time to visit Karnataka depends on several factors such as hotel prices, rainfall, activities, and more. The temperature of Karnataka varies as per its geography. While the coastal regions are hotter, places in the Western Ghats experience cooler weather throughout the year.

Home to diverse landscapes and topographical features, the state of Karnataka is a year-round destination. Cities like Bengaluru and Mysuru, located on the Deccan Plateau, experience a temperate climate most of the year. Here’s a season-wise detailed look at the best season to visit Karnataka for a holiday.

Climate in Karnataka

Summer Season in Karnataka

Due to its highlands, most tourist destinations in Karnataka don’t experience hot and humid summer i.e. from April to June. The coastal, north central, and south central are the main three climatic zones of Karnataka. Bangalore experiences moderate summer, with day temperatures hovering around 35 to 40 degrees. Cities in northern Karnataka witness scorching summers with temperatures reaching 45 degrees in April and May.

The hill stations of Karnataka provide respite to the tourists from plains of Karnataka as well as the other parts of India. If you’re planning to visit hill stations like Coorg then summer is the best time to visit Karnataka. Avoid visiting the beaches or coastal regions, which should be visited between November and March.

Monsoon Season in Karnataka

Monsoon season in Karnataka lasts from July through September. The region receives about 143 inches of average rainfall annually. Once travelers can go past thunderstorms and hard-to-access roads, hill stations in the Western Ghats are really scenic and atmospheric during a downpour. Mountain streams flow with full power before tumbling over forested hills as spectacular waterfalls.   

The eastern parts of Karnataka are a little drier as it gets less rainfall. Although the monsoon season is a bit humid in Karnataka, it brings in lots of heavy showers and thunderstorms from the month of July to September. Monsoon is the best season to visit Karnataka for those looking to catch a glimpse of the exotic flora and fauna of wildlife sanctuaries in Karnataka.

Winter Season in Karnataka

Winter is an ideal time to visit Karnataka. Regions closer to the Arabian Sea and beaches of Karnataka are a little warmer and mostly sunny. From November through March, the weather of Karnataka remains clear and the temperature hovers under 30 degrees in the daytime. Winter is the best time to visit Karnataka. Travelers can plan a safari to Bandipur National Park or Nagarhole National Park to encounter wildlife in Karnataka and exotic flora.

The drop of temperature in Karnataka during winter is gradual and higher elevations are moderately cold. Coastal regions of Karnataka experience less humidity in winter, which makes it the best time to visit Karnataka. During this time of the year, local festivals in such as Mysuru Dussehra and Makar Sankranti can be enjoyed. Winter season may be a little more crowded but overall, it’s the best season to visit Karnataka.

      It was over all great experience. CARLO did their job good. Raj Sharma was very cooperative & courteous. i highly recommend this agency. Treebo Trend Vrundavan at Madikeri offered much less dishes for breakfast. Linens were not fresh. They were not giving toiletries on their own. They said it was Treebo policy. They were not having even shower cap & soap cake. They wanted only liquid soap to be used. No doubt, rooms were spacious & most staff was courteous. Sunflower was value for money. Driver was demanding commission from every shop we visited.

      I absolutely liked the experience with Foxplore Travels. From the very beginning the travel agent had been very attentive and gave priority to our satisfaction and comfort along with giving us the best deal. They try to understand our priorities, which are very well taken care of. The communication with the travels, the vehicle arranged, the driver cum travel guide, and the hotel/resort provided were of top class for the money spent and worth an experience. I would definitely recommend Foxplore to anyone. I absolutely liked the experience with Foxplore Travels.

      Too many mistakes. The procedure for raising invoice needs correction.Was made to turn to both agent n Travel Triangle: Travel Triangle rep including a lady higher up the chain promised to mail me the correct invoice. But am still waiting for the mail. The hotel selected was not a Star hotel that I had indicated. It is clear that the same was selected from the net which I could have done also. Trip was good n well executed but the planning process was poor. I however would compliment Mr Yadav of Shoppers Trip for he did help to the best of his abilities.
